The kings of Italian style and mechanical wizardry return with another impressive vehicle – the Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S.
From the outset and judging by Maserati’s track record, you can expect the Quattroporte Sport GT S to be an impressive machine. Its appearance definitely has a “stop and stare” quality and it has a sporty feel and maintains Maserati’s long tradition of unquestionable style and elegance while still maintaining the essence of the original design. The deeper set grille is fitted to the front bumper, and is framed by the new fog lights and air intakes that have been enlarged to cope with the more powerful engine. The combination of the redesigned bumper and the new grille bestow the front end of the car with an immediate visual impact.
The interior has been laden with the bells and whistles down to microscopic detail. The seats contain a stylised “M” and have been designed to promote superior comfort with its central portions being upholstered in perforated Alcantara. The interior finishes have been decked out in a special material called Titan Tex which is an ultra-lightweight aluminium-coated titanium fibre fabric.
Manual Mode has a clever electronic gear shift indicator that tells you when you have to change gear. There are Trofoe extra-long paddles behind the steering wheel which are designed for easy gear-changes. The Auto Sport mode allows you the vehicle to zip from 0 to 100km in just five seconds. A highly developed braking system by Brembo has been installed. Superior braking is attributed to 360mm brake discks that exhibit dual-technology. The six-piston callipers, of different diameters, are in a single aluminium block. These keep their shape better than two piece calliper sets and offer unbeatable stopping power.
The Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S contains the most powerful engine in the Quattroporte range. It pushes out 31 kw (450 HP) at 7,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 510 Nm at 4,750 rpm – some serious raw power. This is a car owners dream and a legend in the making.
