New Maserati Quattroporte is From Italy with Luxe

Maserati Quattroporte

Rap star Eminem rang in the anthem for Chrysler’s new “Imported from Detroit” angle, and now Maserati is showing some country love. Fiat SpA’s new Maserati Quattroporte is trumpeting an imported from Italy song, with luxe.

The new Maserati Quattroporte:

  • Entry-level: Direct-injected, twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 with 410 horses. This model has a top speed of 177 miles per hour.
  • Range-topper: Direct-injected, twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 with 530 horses. Top speed is 191 miles per hour for this beast!
  • Both models will have a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifting. Clients can select either RWD or AWD configurations.

The new Maserati Quattroporte can hit the 60-mile per hour marker in less than 5 seconds, without attempting to be a supercar. The super sleek model will roll onto the U.S. market this year, where the brand hopes to lure a larger share of buyers. This number may be a bit unrealistic, however, as Maserati currently unloads around 5,000 units in the States annually and aims for 50,000 by 2015. Hey Maserati…drop the price to 1/3 and that may actually happen! Until then, our Maserati rentals are always available. read more

The problem for Maserati interiors has never been with materials and craftsmanship, but rather, design. With the plethora of exotic supercars sporting top-notch designer interiors, it is refreshing to see that Maserati has changed gears and headed in a new direction! read more
