Press release

Maserati Quattroporte, the model which established the category of “Luxury Sports Saloons”, can be considered something of a Maserati masterpiece. After five years of success, with more than 15,000 cars delivered and 46 international awards, the Quattroporte is now being presented with a new look and new technical solutions.

The history of art is characterized by audacious artists who challenged pre-existing conventions. Similarly the Pininfarina Pininfarina design team, thanks to their unrivalled and skilful hands, created a fresher, more modern look for the Maserati Quattroporte, yet always mindful of the class, glamor and exclusivity which represent its inner essence.

The personality and glamor of the Maserati flagship are now represented by two products: the Quattroporte and the Quattroporte S. The former is fitted with the familiar 4.2 liter 400 hp V8 engine, while the latter adopts the new 4.7 liter 430 hp V8 recently introduced on the GranTurismo S, with a different specification.

Both cars feature the 6-speed automatic transmission developed in association with ZF. The main styling changes are to the most recognizable features.

First of all the front, where the new grille, with its vertical slats, is reminiscent of the GranTurismo. The front and rear light units are also updated, featuring LEDs. On the side, the under-door molding is more noticeable, with a line that runs into that of the new bumpers, which have a wider protective band and more pronounced rear styling.

The door mirrors are also new, with a more dynamic shape and a more streamlined mounting to the door. The interior has a new center console and the controls are grouped more closely together for even more convenient operation.

The car’s range of navigation systems is also fully updated, now comprising the New Maserati Multimedia System.

Two new shades of leather, Marrone Corniola (brown) and Sabbia (sand), replacing the beige which was previously in the range, debut on the Quattroporte S and Quattroporte respectively.

The new Quattroporte and Quattroporte S will be on sale in the UK from October.
