The traditional grille dominates the aggressive front end of the Quattroporte SThe Quattroporte S* is unmistakably Maserati. The eye is drawn from the classic oval grille and over the imposing bonnet, a feature inspired by the GranTurismo and other great models created by the marque. The black, convex, vertical bars pay homage to an iconic model from the past, the A6 GCS berlinetta, and contrast with the grille’s sleek chrome border. The Maserati trident takes pride of place in the centre.
Modern front headlights track the sleek bodyworkSitting either side of the grille, the front light assemblies stand out with their striking modern design and render the car even more captivating. The light cluster includes LED day running lights: a stylish and functional feature that makes the car instantly recognisable in any conditions. The light cluster’s vertical sweep merges smoothly with the car’s flanks.
Twin oval tailpipes add to the sporty lookThe Maserati Quattroporte S*’s innate elegance is enhanced with aesthetic touches that make it unique. The twin steel oval tailpipes provide muscle to the back end, add to the car’s dashing poise and contrast with the rectangular look of the LED light clusters.
Traditional detailingThe car’s exterior looks are a new take on Maserati’s traditional styling, like the triangular C-pillar that sports the oval ‘Saetta’ logo and the refined 19” Tritone rims fitted as standard on the Quattroporte S*. The spokes on these special rims resemble those of the Maserati tridente in a show of strength and sophistication.
Passengers are cocooned in a luxurious and pure interiorThe interior of the Maserati Quattroporte S* allows occupants the extravagance of a luxurious drive. The dashboard is set out on three levels and is dominated by a broad centre section that adds a renewed sense of space and lightness. In the middle of the dashboard is the large Maserati Touch Control touchscreen that can be used to manage the car’s many entertainment and information systems.
Supple Poltrona Frau® leather combined with prestigious woodThe Poltrona Frau® leather finish in the Quattroporte S has been crafted using the finest Italian traditions and results in an interior that is both comfortable and hardwearing. In the Quattroporte S, the standard finish to the centre of the dashboard, the centre tunnel and door inserts is the elegant Radica trim. This prestigious wood features open pores and is recognisable for its knots and veining, much sought-after and exclusive characteristics.
Cosy and spacious seats for rear passengersThere is ample space for three in the rear with life on board made more pleasant by the centre armrest that features two stowable cupholders and a USB connection to plug in mobile devices. As an alternative, it is also possible to request two individual heated, ventilated and electronically adjustable seats that share a centre console packed with functions. A relaxing drive is ensured.
SMART, WRAPAROUND SEATSOccupants will feel at home right away in the ergonomic seats. The vertical patterns that feature on the seat area and seat back are another example of the interior’s refined elegance. The seats can be adjusted electronically to achieve the perfect driving position in terms of height and reach and the seat angles fine tuned.
The Twin Turbo V6 is both sporty and versatileThe 3-litre Twin Turbo V6 fitted to the Quattroporte S* has the Quattroporte GTS V8’s sporty edge; the two units also share most of their components. The bore spec and combustion chamber design are unchanged, as is the technology that controls the valves and direct injection. These refined solutions allow the V6 to develop 301kW (410 HP) at 5500 rpm.
Amazing torque provides exciting accelerationThe versatile V6 unit that equips the Quattroporte S* thrills whenever the driver steps on the accelerator, with the power coming through loud and clear. In Sport mode, peak torque is 550 Nm and is reached at just 1750 rpm. These extraordinary figures see the Quattroporte S* sprint to 100 km/h (0-62 mph), from a standing start, in only 5.1 seconds. It boasts a top speed of 285 km/h (177mph).
Lighter, more efficient gear changesThe Quattroporte S* makes the most of its modern, automatic, 8-speed ZF transmission. Light and precise gear shifts are delivered by the auto-adaptive software that recognises the driver’s style and tweaks the type of shift accordingly. There are five modes to choose from and these can be selected by pushing the tunnel-mounted buttons: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and the all-new I.C.E.
DUAL-CAST BRAKESThe Brembo brakes on the Quattroporte S* were created to optimise weight and guarantee high performance under intensive use. A six-piston monoblock is mounted up front and acts on 360 x 32 mm discs, with four-piston units and 350 x 28 mm discs at the rear. The forged and ventilated discs boast dual-cast technology that unites the benefits of cast iron with lightweight aluminium.
Precious wood enhances the interiorThe Maserati Quattroporte S*, like the other models in the Quattroporte range, can be modified to suit the driver’s tastes. Drivers can, for example, opt for three other types of prestigious wood rather than the Radica finish for the dashboard, central tunnel and door inserts: Erable, Tanganika or Ebano.
Exclusive carbon fibre and aluminium elements bring out the car’s sporty sideA special glossy carbon fibre can be used in the interior to highlight the sporty side of the Quattroporte S. Another option is to have the steering column-mounted gearshift paddles in aluminium, teamed with pedals in brushed aluminium with rubber inserts.
A new colour palette to create unique combinationsSumptuous Poltrona Frau® upholstery contours the seats, dashboard, door panels and central tunnel. The leather is available in Nero, Marrone, Tortora and Blu, depending on the interior elements selected. Two other hues - Sabbia and Cuoio - can be chosen if the driver wants a two-tone finish. The steering wheel crown can be finished in three prestigious woods, or in carbon fibre, and can also be finished in a choice of five leathers.
ALL-NEW DESIGN TO COMBINE ELEGANCE AND SPORTINESSThe exterior can be tweaked by fitting 20”, seven-spoke, super-sporty Mercurio design rims; the two-tone Crono rims are a sophisticated and smart 20” alternative. For those looking for an exclusive and refined look, Maserati has created the imposing yet lightweight 21” Titano wheel rims; rims whose slimline spokes allow a good view of the brake callipers.
