The two highly distinctive trims are available as an upgrade for all Quattroporte V6 powertrain versions (Quattroporte Diesel and Quattroporte S). Both trims are be priced at the same level across the range. The top of the range version, the Quattroporte GTS, which features the twin-turbo V8, will be available exclusively in either the GranLusso or GranSport trim as part of the standard equipment. Each trim level was conceived to meet the needs of customers that seek a distinctive and unique product in the luxury saloon segment. GranLusso and GranSport are immediately recognisable thanks to their distinct exterior design and unique interiors.
Despite its impressive size, the Quattroporte manages to maintain a balanced and dynamic appearance - from the restyled Maserati grille at the front to its LED light clusters at the rear. Newly designed front and rear bumpers give the car even greater authority and presence, whilst the marque’s traditional three air vents are featured along the sides. Frameless doors then manage to give this executive saloon the appearance of a sleek coupé.
The Quattroporte’s familiar triangular C-pillar, the celebrated Saetta logo, is another nod to the car’s innate sporting character, as are the quad chrome tailpipes and the integral boot spoiler, which generates downforce at high speeds. Its aerodynamics are also impressive, thanks in part to its flat underbody and also to a clever Air Shutter behind the front grille that controls the passage of air through the radiator and reduces drag.
Eight-speed transmission and skyhook suspension: supreme onboard comfort and sheer driving pleasure
The sophisticated design of the eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox ensures precise gear changes and exceptional performance, and comfortably manages the prodigious power of the different engines. Mounted behind the engine, it is assisted by auto-adaptive software that is able to recognise the way the car is being driven, and modifies the shifting pattern for each individual driver. There are five operating modes, selected using the buttons near the gear lever: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport, and Increased Control & Efficiency (I.C.E) for a better control in any weather conditions and the most comfortable and quietest engine response, along with reduced fuel consumption. Upshifts are all automatic unless a manual mode is selected.
Uncompromising style, Unparalleled performance.
In the new Quattroporte, Maserati has created a unique and exclusive car, designed for the discerning tastes of entrepreneurial pioneers and business trailblazers – high achievers who relish the unconventional and avant-garde. Naturally, for such a clientele, the Quattroporte is available in a number of different guises and with three inspirational engines.
In the front or in the rear, relax in the lap of luxury, to ensure the comfort of its distinguished guests, the Quattroporte wants for nothing, and in terms of materials and equipment only the best will do: premium Italian leathers, fine woods, handcrafted stitching, the very latest in high-tech instrumentation and exclusive Ermenegildo Zegna Silk Edition interiors.
The sensation of wellbeing begins with the 12-way power adjustable leather front seats that ensure the perfect driving position. Ahead of the driver, on the central console, there is the very latest touch-screen infotainment system with an additional rotary control, along with a handy new phone storage box. Meanwhile, the multifunction steering wheel is a model of ergonomic efficiency and provides a highly tactile grip.
Equal attention has been focused on the occupants of the rear seats, as well. The standard Quattroporte comes with a supremely comfortable, asymmetrically folding, hand-stitched leather rear bench seat for three people, complete with a central armrest that contains a USB point and a 12V socket. The overall spaciousness of the Quattroporte is enhanced by the sleek lines of the broad dashboard, its central tunnel, and its large doors, so that all onboard are enveloped in an atmosphere of complete luxury.
