Maserati Quattroporte Overview

Despite its high price tag, the Maserati Quattroporte is good value for money. It is comfortable for all occupants, including rear-seated adults. Despite poor fuel economy, the vehicle gets good range, making it attractive to business people who travel long distances.

The Maserati Quattroporte interior is elegant with leather and wood effect around the steering wheel and leather seats. The car has a long, wide body design and a low ride height. The length and width of the car give extra space to the passengers for maximum comfort.

The lengthy Maserati Quattroporte provides more than sufficient space to all passengers both front and rear. Four adults will fit comfortably inside with room to spare. The boot is spacious enough able to carry a few large items such as luggage. Head and legroom are plentiful so even the tallest of passengers will not complain.

Background

The Maserati Quattroporte was first produced in 1963. It was available with a 4.1 litre or 4.7 litre engine with 5-speed manual and 3-speed automatic transmissions. Production of the first generation ceased in 1969.

The Quattroporte returned for a second generation in 1974. Only 13 models were made, all to specification, as the changes to the vehicle did not attract many customers and Maserati fans did not believe the car to be a true representation of what Maseratis were about. Production ended in 1978.

The third generation was introduced in 1979, and made the model popular once more. It sported a V8 engine as the first generation did, and was equipped with a luxury interior. Production lasted until 1990.

In 1994 the fourth generation of the Quattroporte hit the market, and featured a twin turbo V6 engine. It was a successful model and production continued till 2001.

The fifth generation of the Maserati Quattroporte was first produced in 2004. It features a V8 engine with a 6-speed transmission. There have been several updated versions of the model, including the Sport GT, Sport GT S and Executive GT. In 2009 the car received a facelift and was released with a redesigned exterior.

Summary

The Maserati Quattroporte is a luxury saloon that delivers high performance and provides a comfortable drive. The car is not a cheap one to purchase and run, but it makes a superb long distance cruiser.
