► 2017 Maserati Quattroporte. The exterior of the restyled Quattroporte is recognisable with a new bumper design with matte black profile at the front and the matte black extractor at the rear. The front grille is more pointed and imposing, and it introduces new vertical chrome elements that contrast with the deepness of the shark nose effect. Other distinguishing details of the new Quattroporte are the matte black side skirts and the exterior mirrors, which have been slightly restyled to incorporate new technical elements.
The GranLusso trim reinterprets the concept of luxury in a race-bred engineered luxury saloon by enhancing the exterior finish and improving in-cabin comfort for both driver and passengers.
The GranSport trim underscores the sporty character of the Quattroporte while enhancing the aggressive appearance of the car. Thanks to new exterior design cues and interior contents that reflect the legendary racing heritage of the Maserati brand.
Engine-wise, the Quattroporte remains faithful to its traditions with a very wide range of engines and transmissions starting with the Quattroporte GTS, powered by the immense 530 horsepower 3.8 litre Ferrari-produced V8 Twin-Turbo with rear wheel drive, capable of a peak torque of 710 Nm and able to propel the car to 310 km/h (192 mph), accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a mere 4.7 seconds.
The Quattroporte is also available with the 410 hp 3.0 litre Ferrari-produced V6 Twin-Turbo, with rear wheel drive (Quattroporte S) or with Q4, the intelligent all-wheel-drive system available for the Quattroporte S Q4. At the top of the class for both versions are the 550 Nm of torque and the 286 km/h (177 mph) top speed, with the S Q4 variant accelerating from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 4.9 seconds and the rear-wheel drive Quattroporte S version in 5.1 seconds.
Based on the same V6 architecture, the Quattroporte is also available in specific markets with 350 hp, 20 hp more than in the previous version, capable of delivering a powerful drive with a torque of 500 Nm, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.5 seconds and a faster top speed of 270 km/h (167 mph).
The range is completed by the Quattroporte Diesel; equipped with a 3.0-litre V6 Turbo, it delivers 600 Nm of torque with 275 hp, retaining a top speed of 252 km/h (156 mph) and a quick 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) figure of just 6.4 seconds.
All versions of the Quattroporte are fitted with state-of-the-art ZF eight-speed automatic transmission and electronically-controlled Skyhook shock absorbers; with an ideal 50:50 weight distribution and an extensive use of aluminium in the chassis, body and suspension, performance and comfort are again unparalleled.
