The top-of-the-range version of Maserati's luxury saloon, the new Quattroporte GTS, comes with a choice of trims as well as a superb driving experience as standard.
When you plump for the new Maserati Quattroporte GTS over the standard-edition model, you get to choose between one of two exclusive trim options as standard: GranSport and GranLusso. GranSport features new sports bumpers on the front and rear alongside black gloss features, skirts that match the body paint colour and 21-inch Titano wheels, complete with red brake callipers. Meanwhile GranLusso increases the luxury on offer, with exterior flourishes including chrome bumper inserts, black brake callipers and 20-inch Mercurio wheels.
The interior of the Quattroporte is a beautiful place to spend your time, regardless of trim-specific touches, but the look and feel of that interior will change radically depending on whether you choose the GranLusso or GranSport trims.
The GranLusso interior makes use of Maserati's status as the only manufacture to offer interiors furnished with Italian Zegna silk. Elsewhere in the cabin, opulence is achieved with a wood and leather steering wheel and wood trim throughout.
The GranSport meanwhile increases the Quattroporte GTS's quota of carbon fibre to reduce weight, and includes a carbon fibre steering wheel and internal trim.
Whichever trim option you choose for your new Maserati Quattroporte GTS you will find a 3.8-litre V8 petrol engine under the hood. The V8 is capable of reaching 190mph thanks to 530bhp, and can travel from 0-60mph in under 4.7seconds. There are five distinct driving modes included within the Quattroporte GTS's technology and all are easily selected with the push of a button: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport, and Increased Control and Efficiency (I.C.E).
The new Maserati Quattroporte GTS is a top-of-the-range luxury saloon, and as such it contains a vast array of technology to ensure safety on the roads. As well as an adaptive cruise control system that keeps a constant distance from the car in front, automatically accelerating and decelerating accordingly, there is also a blind spot alert system to warn you of unseen traffic whilst manoeuvring.
If there is a collision the Quattroporte GTS keeps the driver and passengers safe, with a comprehensive airbag system that includes driver and passenger bags as well as curtain-style side airbags for the passengers in the rear.
