New Maserati Quattroporte Quotes

Performance

The Quattroporte is a car that is superb on more demanding roads or smooth surfaces, with minimal body roll and huge amounts of grip. The steering is light and responsive, letting the car turn into corners enthusiastically considering its fairly bulky size. The Quattroporte is powered by a 4.2-litre V8 engine which boasts 395bhp, giving the car a superb performance of 0-62mph in just 5.2 seconds. Maserati upped their game in 2008, with the introduction of a 4.7-litre V8 with 425bhp in the Quattroporte S and 440bhp in the Sport GT S.

Running Costs

The Quattroporte is unfortunately not a cheap and cheerful car to run, however fuel economy for the V8 engine is a huge improvement over the old car’s 15.7mpg figure. With a smaller capacity and a couple of turbos, the smaller engines manage an optimistic 23.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 278g/km. Standard fuel economy is 19mpg at best, with 18mpg with the more powerful engines; however the Quattroporte is a car that shouldn’t be judged on its fuel economy but on its sheer style and power.

Equipment

The Quattroporte has various levels of trims available, all featuring a very impressive list of features. The Standard kit includes separate front and rear climate control system, laminated glass, sat nav, leather upholstery, a Bose sound system, CD stereo, electric rear sun blind, steering-wheel mounted stereo controls, electric mirrors and windows, xenon lights, cruise control, parking sensors, electrically adjustable front and rear seats, plus automatic lights and wipers. Upgrading to the Executive GT adds a chrome mesh grille, wood and leather steering wheel plus a comfort pack for rear seat passengers. The top spec Sport GT boasts additional 20-inch wheels, carbon fibre interior and a more sports focussed exhaust and suspension set-up.
