Maserati Quattroporte available in South Africa

2014 Maserati Quattroporte

The recently launched sixth generation Maserati Quattroporte which is now available in South Africa is significantly larger than its predecessor, but aims to bring exotic flair to a segment which is typically dominated by conservative German brands.

Maserati Quattroporte - Features

The Maserati Quattroporte is the fastest, most powerful and economic four-door ever built by Maserati and comes with either a 3.8-litre V8 engine or a 3.0-litre V6 engine, both of which are new and twin turbo charged.

The 3.8-litre V8 engine provides Maserati’s new performance benchmark with a top speed of 307 km/h and sprints from 0 – 100km/h in just 4.7 seconds. It is 20km/h faster than the previous Quattroporte Sport as well as up to 200Nm more torque, while the V6 twin turbo boasts a top speed of 285km/h.

Both versions are mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, while exquisite handling is ensured by a 50:50 weight distribution, double-wishbone front suspension and five-link rear axle.

Interior Features

The interior continues with luxurious and traditional hand crafted details like the Maserati Touch Control Screen, adjustable pedals, reversing cameras and the optional 15-speaker Bowers and Wilkins audio system.

The new Maserati Quattroporte can be ordered with either four or five seat configurations.
