Latest model: Maserati Quattroporte 2009
Maserati Quattroporte 2009Maserati 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 15000, vehicles provided and 46 international awards, the Maserati Quattroporte is now being introduced with a new exterior and new technical solutions. The history of art is characterised by audacious artists who challenged pre-existing conventions. Similarly the Pininfarina layout team, due to their unrivalled and skilful hands, created a fresher, more modern exterior for the Maserati Quattroporte, yet always mindful of the class, glamour and exclusivity which represent its inner essence.

Maserati Quattroporte details:

The personality and glamour of the Maserati main are now represented by two products: the Maserati Quattroporte and the Maserati Quattroporte S. The former is fitted with the familiar 4. 2 litre 400 hp V8 motor, while the latter adopts the new 4. 7 litre 430 hp V8 recently presented on the Maserati Granturismo S, with a various specification. Both vehicles option the 6-speed automatic transmission designed in association with ZF.

The main look-and-feel changes are to the most recognisable features. First of all the front, where the new grille, with its vertical slats, is reminiscent of the Granturismo. The front and back light units are also revised, featuring Leds. On the side, the under-door moulding is more noticeable, with a line that runs into that of the new bumpers, which have a wider protective band and more pronounced back look-and-feel. The door mirrors are also new, with a more dynamic shape and a more streamlined mounting to the door. The dashboard has a new centre control panel and the controls are grouped more closely together for even more comfortable operation. The car's range of navigators is also fully revised, 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 Maserati Quattroporte S and Maserati Quattroporte respectively.

The new Maserati Quattroporte and Maserati Quattroporte S will be on sale in the UK from October 2008.
