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 - FeaturesThe 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.
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.
