Maserati Unveils Quattroporte Sport GT SBy Affluent Page Editor • • Category: Automobile, New & Noteworthy
Maserati plans to debut its beautiful new Quattroporte Sport GT S, its most powerful luxury sedan ever, at next month’s Detroit Auto Show. The ultimate expression of the famed marque’s sportiness in the four-door Quattroporte range, the Sport GT S features four major technical and five significant stylistic improvements. Debuting in time to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Maserati’s first Indianapolis 500 win, the Quattroporte Sport GT S is positioned to give much-hyped new four-door speed demons like the Lamborghini Estoque and Porsche Panamera a run for their money.
On the technical side, the upgrades include increased power for the V8 4.7 liter engine to 433 HP; sportier gearshift management for a 0 – 60 time of less that 5.5 seconds; a re-engineered front and rear suspension system featuring stiffer springs and lower ride height; and a new sports exhaust system controlled by pneumatic valves for a “deep, throaty and captivating sound.” Stylistic changes both exterior and interior include a new black grill with concave vertical fins featuring the Trident logo with red accents; new headlights in metallic titanium finish; black finishing around the doors, body-colored door handles and black twin oval exhaust pipes; new M-design seats with perforated Alcantara® and leather upholstery; and trim finished in Titantex, a “titanium colored” composite material.
