“The sixth-generation Quattroporte not only sets high technology standards, but also remains faithful to Maserati’s long history in luxury sports sedans,” Gaetano Marino said, regional director of Maserati for South East Asia and the Pacific.
“Maserati, the pioneer of luxury sports sedan, and the new Quattroporte continues to be the benchmark for high quality engineering, supercar performance and limousine comfort,” he added. Despite its new technology, the new Quattroporte remains true to Maserati’s roots with its V8 twin turbo; making it not only the fastest four-door Maserati ever built, but also the most powerful and the most economical as well.
The powerful engine and the large cabin are at the core of the Quattroporte’s design. Its trademark of long, powerful nose and a concave Trident grill provides a clear link to the outgoing Quattroporte. The direct-injection engine family will boast an all-new 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo charge, designed by Maserati Powertrain and assembled by Ferrari at Maranello. It provides a new performance benchmark, reaching 100km/h in just 4.7 seconds and achieving a 307km/h top speed. When it comes to economy, the V8 Maserati Quattroporte has lowered both its fuel consumption and emissions by 20 percent over the outgoing Quattroporte.
With an eight-speed automatic transmission and its rear-wheel drive configuration, the new Quattroporte is known as the most secure all-weather performance car in the brand’s history. This new 8-speed transmission is lighter by 4 kilograms compared to the 6-speed version of the outgoing Quattroporte. For fuel consumption, the last two gears of the automatic transmission have been developed for that purpose.
Its hydraulic gearbox is assisted by auto-adaptive software, which is now a standard on all Maserati models. There are five operating modes, selected using the buttons by the gear lever: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and the new I.C.E. (Increased Control Efficiency).
“This occasion gives us the privilege to introduce the All New Quattroporte that will soon be part of our motoring landscape,” said Mr. Wellington Soong, Chair and President of Autostrada Motore, Inc.
