2011 Maserati Quattroporte Sport GTS MC Sportline

Maserati has been making headlines with its engine reduction , a sub-Quattroporte , and the Maserati of tomorrow , but the Australian International Auto Show saw the current side of Maserati as it unveiled its newest special edition.

The Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S MC Sportline (yeah, that’s a ridiculously long name) is basically the Maserati Quattroporte Sport GTS equipped with the MC Sportline package which was first unveiled for the GranTurismo S model. We haven’t heard exactly how many units of this special edition we are going to get, but the GranTurismo S only got 12 so we imagine this special edition will get the same treatment.

The Maserati Quattroporte Sport GTS MC Sport Line replaces all the wood trim in the standard car with carbon fiber. This material can be seen across the dashboard, the front and rear center consoles, sections of the door panels, the gear knob, and around the switchgear. The area around the instrument pack and on the gearchange paddles will also be decked out in the stuff. Each of the door sills is fitted with carbon fiber trim panels embossed with the MC Sport Line logo and the MC logo is stamped into the aluminum brake pedal.

The engine remains unchanged, so we are still working with a 4.7 liter V8 mated to sequential manual auto transmission. The difference here is that the gearbox now has a Sport mode with faster shifting times. The power remains the same at 440 hp with a peak torque of 490 Nm with a top speed of 177mph.

Press release after the jump.

The Quattroporte Sport GT S with the added stylistic elements of the MC Sport Line option package is at the peak of sportiness in the Quattroporte range and perfectly embodies the character of Maserati luxury sport sedan.

The MC Sport Line equipment package is developed from the experience of Maserati Corse – Maserati factory-owned racing department – and Maserati winning motorsport programmes, both with the Maserati MC12 Maserati MC12 – once again this year leading the FIA GT1 World Championship – and the GranTurismo MC in its Trofeo and GT4 versions. The MC Sport Line, first launched on the GranTurismo S with electro-actuated gearbox – is now available across the GranTurismo and Quattroporte ranges.

Maybe this guy had this passion of improving one’s design. Oh well, let’s investigate some more about this issue.

It is really looks so simple, but I still find it very appealing on its decent appearance and I also noticed that the interior of this one was offered some cozy and comfortable features, and I also love the fact that it is very practical to use.

Wow! I’m so impressed with this one! Even though it looks so simple and ordinary on its platform design, I’m still so fond with the decency of it, and I must say that I’m so amazed with the luxurious interior of it.

The only thing that concerns me was the figure performance of the car. IMO, unlike the its brother Ferrari! Aside from that I would love to see a more elegance on its interior.

Maserati is such a piece of an awesome creation! I’m really impressed with the decent and clean detailing of this vehicle. The figure performance is awesome as well.

I don’t why Maserati put up this one. Are they celebrating something? As far as I know. When you unveil a special edition, you are celebrating something. Well, I think they just want to make a special edition.

Well, I think this is the ugliest Maserati that I have seen in the market. The interior is not that good for me, I don’t want the styling in here it look so cheap for it has a hideous styling for its center console.

I’m not impressed with the styling of the car and I think its kind of boring. However, it’s a good thing that it has an impressive figure performance just like its cousin the Ferrari.

The engine performance of the car is quite impressive as well as its look. I would love to see this production in the different level of production.

The styling of the Maserati is quite impressive! Honestly, I mistakenly call the aftermarket version o of Ferrari California by wheelsandmore to be a Maserati.

I think you’re right. And its the good thing about this car brand it perfectly combines the elegance and high speed performance in this car.

An amazing creation from Maserati. I like the elegance of this car and its high performing engine. Well,I guess that’s what you get from the sister company of Ferrari.

Oh well, maybe it was inspired from this design. What’s wrong with copying? As long as you didn’t copy the entire idea. Maybe this guy had this passion of improving one’s design. Oh well, let’s investigate some more about this issue.

Maserati is the fabulous sister company of Ferrari, and when it comes to design and engine performance it will never been outdated.

Maserati definitely is the most fabulous sister company of Ferrari. They made such wonderful cars. However, Quattroporte Sport looks so simple and the performance of this car doesn’t mention in the article. Hope they have included it.

The 2011 Maserati Quattroporte Sport GTS MC Sportline engine is unchanged, so we are still working with 4.7-liter V8, which is a sequential manual gearbox car. The difference here is that the gearbox has a Sport mode now with faster switching times. Performance is the same at 440 hp with 490 Nm of torque, with a maximum speed of 177 km / h.

well, this rendering looks very nice, but we have no idea how it will look in reality so there is not much point to this thread

Yeah. This one looks a little better. The worst part is they don’t look better in person.
