Maserati’s super saloons, the Quattroporte and Quattroporte S, have undergone a minor makeover. The sixth generation of Quattroporte is the most powerful and refined yet. Changes, however, have been minor. At the front, the grille now has vertical slats, maintaining a visual family link with the GranTurismo, front and rear lights incorporate LEDs, mirrors have been restyled and streamlined into the doors and, inside, a new centre console has been used and the nav system upgraded to the new Maserati Multimedia System.
The Quattroporte is fitted with a 4.2-litre 400 HP V8, the ‘S’ version shares the GranTurismo’s 4.7-litre, 430 HP V8. Both cars feature the 6-speed automatic transmission developed in association with ZF. Two new shades of leather, Marrone Corniola (brown) and Sabbia (sand), replacing the beige which was previously in the range.
