At 5.26 mtrs length the Maserati Quattroporte weighs only 1860 kg with a perfect 50:50 weight distribution between front and rear.

Thanks to its downsized engine, the Quattroporte achieves the lowest ever gasoline consumption in its 50 yr + history with just 9.8 litres/100km as well as CO2 emissions of 228 grams/km. The latest addition to the Quattroporte range retains its sporty Maserati character with an acceleration of 5.6 secs from Zero to 100km/h and a top speed of 263 km/h.

The Quattroporte is fitted with a ZF AT8 – HP70 8-speed automatic transmission, which contributes to increased comfort, faster gear shifting, reduced fuel consumption and reduced NVH.

As befitting Maserati tradition, it is capable of being in 5 dedicated shift modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and the I.C.E. mode. The I.C.E. (Increased Control and Efficiency) mode, is designed particularly for increased fuel economy and low grip conditions, and is also available on all other Quattroporte variants.

The interior standard equipment is sumptuous with traditional hand-crafted Italian detailing for which the Trident brand is known.

Maserati also provides an exceptional degree of bespoke personalization with a vast range of materials for the client to choose from, including wood, carbon fibre, leather, Alcantara and numerous optional choices. Features like the rear seat entertainment, a reversing camera and the optional 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system, as well as WLAN-based WiFi add a touch of technological advancement.

Have a terrific weekend.
