We all know that the most important element of a tuning project hinges on whether the tuning company played around with the car’s engine. Sure, aesthetic and aerodynamic modifications make for great eye candy, but for the most part, the joy still lies on what kind of powertrain upgrades are done on the car.

MR Car Design opted to go to this route with their latest upgrade for the suave and sexy Maserati Quattroporte. With a powertrain that features a 4.6-liter Ferrari V8 engine, MR Car Design gave the engine a software upgrade while also adding a new custom exhaust system, bumping up the luxury saloon’s output from 400 horsepower and 339 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 430 ponies and 361 lb/ft of torque.

While the program doesn’t have a whole lot of aesthetic and aerodynamic changes, the German tuner nevertheless gave it a few tweaks here and there, including tinted windows, new tail pipe designs, a set of adjustable H&R sport springs that lowered the ride height by 20 to 30mm, and a set of 22” Vossen alloy wheels wrapped in 245/30 R22 tires at the front and 295/25 R22 tires at the back.

For a car like the Maserati Quattroporte, sometimes subtle is the way to go. Of course, it’s always a plus if the car’s already powerful engine gets a bump up too.

It looks very simple on its design but it still looks good on that. However, I hope that they already include some interior pictures of it. I’m just a little curious if what it will looks like. Anyway, its engine specs is already quite satisfying.

I’m getting bored on the platform that Maserati always used for their vehicles. Well, I hope that they would build a vehicle which has a refreshing look. Anyway, its engine is so awesome with this one.

This Quattroporte maybe looks so simple, but I must say that I still find very appealing and I love the fact that it is so practical to use on my everyday transportation and very reliable on the roads.

I hope that the interior of this Quattroporte will not disappoint me.smiley Well, I have to agree that the overall exterior appearance of this is not really impressive instead it looks so ordinary.

I’m not impressed with the overall appearance, for me I Maserati GranTurismo Sovrano is more appealing and more well establish than this. I haven’t seen any significant in this style and features.

@Joewaldner Hay, you idiot! What are you talking about? This isn’t an Audi car, and this is not even a project by Kahn. It seems that you either did not read the post or you are drunk while reading it.

@brandon shelton yeah it does look a bit like a BMW. But this Audi car really looks very unique too. I wish they have have made it even better. But Project Kahn really did it right this time.

As expected from a Maserati car, it has a good design and wheels. Plus, having an extremely high performance is a huge be a big factor to consider.

When I saw this Maserati Quattroporte, it’s like your driving a very luxurious car.
It’s kinda cute and not that much expensive than the others. Well, I’m looking forward to this new one.
