The Sport GT version of the Quattroporte was created to further enhance the high performance spirit and sporty character that set the Quattroporte apart from any other executive saloon. From an engineering point of view, the gearbox has been given the most radical overhaul; the Sport button allows the driver to significantly cut gear changing times (which are now 35% faster on average), thanks to a development in the electro-hydraulic transmission system’s CPU. At high engine speeds, the Quattroporte Sport GT’s exhaust system also gives a much deeper rumble to the already sporty sound of the Maserati V8.

The 20" wheels and specific Skyhook adaptive damping software mean a clear improvement in dynamic handling when used in more press-on situations. The wheels, which include the tire pressure monitoring system, are combined with brakes featuring metal weave tubing, cross-drilled discs and titanium-colored calipers.

The car’s sporty character is enhanced by subtle yet significant aesthetic touches. The black chrome of the grille and the side air intakes, for instance, take their inspiration from Maserati’s traditional racing styling cues while the bonnet bears the pierced Trident typical of the Maserati competition cars of the past. The carbon fiber trimmed steering wheel, sporty hand-brake grip and lightweight aluminum pedals complete the Sport GT look.

The Engine The Quattroporte’s 4,244cc 90° V8 engine is light and compact, weighing in at just 403 lbs. Its architecture is worthy of the most advanced racing engines, punching out a specific power of 95.2 bhp/liter. Chain-driven twin overhead camshafts per cylinder bank command four valves per cylinder with hydraulic tappets. The intake cams feature continuously variable phase timing, and also have a new profile expressly designed for the Quattroporte engine, which optimizes its responsiveness. There is also an electronic drive-by-wire accelerator.

The Quattroporte’s V8 engine has a specific and fluid power delivery curve for top class ride comfort and smooth driving: the revs increase gradually and smoothly and the engine delivers a massive 400 bhp at 7,000 rpm. Over 75% of the maximum torque is available at just 2,500 rpm. Combined with the MDS (Maserati DuoSelect) transmission, it offers maximum pleasure in day-to-day driving as well as in more press-on situations.

Suspension

The Skyhook system works together with a highly developed suspension architecture offering front and rear double wishbones with arms and hubs in forged aluminum, to deliver blistering dynamic handling and sumptuous ride comfort. Anti-dive and anti-squat geometries prevent the nose diving under braking and the tail-end dipping under acceleration.

Interior

The Maserati Quattroporte’s cabin combines sumptuous handcrafted elegance with the space and comfort of a car designed to confidently eat up the miles on long journeys. Everything is functional yet luxurious: the controls have been ergonomically laid out to ensure that the driver has them easily to hand and eye at all times without detracting from the comfort of the front and rear passengers.

Onboard quality of life is given absolute priority. The temperature is optimized by a dual-zone climate control and the Quattroporte’s sophisticated computerized system features a Multi Media System color display which includes, amongst other things, onboard computer functions, satellite navigation system and a single CD player. On request, a GSM telephone, TV and DVD player can also be added. Last but far from least, the Quattroporte also boasts the exclusive Bose Hi-End digital audio system which delivers all of the clarity, depth and power of a world-class concert hall.
