2021 Maserati Quattroporte Trofeo
We’ll call it how we see it: the Maserati Quattroporte is a bit (too) long in the tooth. And while the exterior might tend to disagree, the more eloquent clues can be found inside the cabin, which has a strong, dated vibe.
However, Maserati won’t let the Quattroporte fade into oblivion just yet and has prepared a Trofeo version for its larger sedan, as it did for the Levante SUV, hoping it will do better battle against the likes of Audi A8, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and BMW 7 Series.
Former porn star, err, “adult film star,” Jenna Jameson hasn’t made a new flick in many years, but we are fairly certain there are plenty of her classics circulating the computer screens of men everywhere. Well, it looks like her exit from “the industry” hasn’t treated her too well, as she was stuck leasing a Maserati Quattroporte S back in 2010.
Leasing of this luxury auto is not the story though; the real story is that she hasn’t paid the $2,299 lease payment since January. Using our crack mathematical skills, that puts her six months behind and owing $13,794 in late payments.
According to a report by TMZ, the finance company, Maserati Financial Services, attempted to repo the circa $130,000 425-horsepower sedan, but were apparently unsuccessful. Now MFS is outright suing Jameson to return the vehicle and pay an astronomical $107,000 in damages.
We are a little intrigued by the $107K in damages. What kind of damages has MFS undergone from not being able to repo a $130,000 car? We understand suing for the $13,794 in back payments, late fees, and even suing for fruitless repo fees, but what else could possibly add up to that number? Plus, if Jameson can’t afford to pay a $2,300 car payment, what make MFS think it can possibly milk $107,000 out of the ex-actress? We also have to ask, who leases a car anymore?
We’ll keep an eye on this one for you and let you know when we get any more details, as they are a little scarce right now.
