Luxury four-wheel drive Maserati Quattroport S Q4

The all-new Maserati Quattroporte still carries the company’s flag as the ultimate luxury sedan; they released a photo shoot of the four-wheel-drive Maserati Quattroporte S Q4 variant on Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps and Western Europe with the summit peaking at over 4800 meters and is also known as La Dame Blanche, which means French is what ‘the white lady’ means.

The Italians have three variants of the new Quattroporte, including the S Q4, which is powered by a 3.0 V6 BiTurbo that produces 410 hp and is mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission.

The Maserati S Q4 has a Q4 badge, in red and implies that it has the four wheel drive system which is intelligent in the sense that it sends all the power to the rear wheels, but as soon as it notices the lack of grip power is spread across all four wheels. divided, the driver can enjoy the same driving characteristics in rear-wheel drive configuration and four-wheel drive configuration.

Maserati clearly shows that the Quattroporte S 4Q can also handle difficult winter roads very well.

If one is to believe Maserati, this car reaches an average of 1 to 9.9 km/l. The range of this car is a moderate 750 km without the need for petrol. The 8-speed sequential automatic transmission accelerates this very large Quattroporte comfortably from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds.

In addition, this 4-door sedan also has luxury leather upholstery, reversing camera, 19-inch alloy wheels and of course air conditioning.

Revealed: new Maserati Quattroporte

After 8 years, the long-awaited sixth generation Maserati Quattroporte is finally here! Maserati will present the sports sedan at the beginning of 2013 at the Detroit auto show in January, but is already releasing the first images.

The long wait has been rewarded by Maserati today: the Italians have pulled the curtain on a brand new Quattroporte. The 4-door sedan is a direct attack on German luxury sedans such as the Porsche Panamera, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

It is a pity that the Italian car manufacturer did not opt ​​for a ‘couture body’. Because earlier Quattroportes came from the drawing boards of designers such as Pietro Frua, Bertone (Gandini), Italdesign (Giugiaro), Marcello Gandini and Pininfarina, the new Quattroporte must go through life ‘nameless’, as Fiat’s Centro Stile has done the job itself.

It’s not nice to say, as we can only judge the car from the released photos now, but it’s clear to see they did. There are quite a few very strange ‘bends’ in the body, especially the high waistline. And do we see it right: door mirrors of the Chrysler 300?

The new Quattroporte has inherited some key design features from previous models: the signature grille, the three cooling slots in the front wing and the ‘triangular’ C-pillar. The car is more exuberant in design than before, but immediately recognizable as a Quattroporte.

According to Maserati, the interior is characterized by ‘simple lines and efficiency’. This, of course, in combination with beautiful leather and wood types that give the interior a warm appearance. It is noticeable that the dashboard – unlike that of its predecessor – looks quite tidy, many functions will be operated via the huge touch screen in the center console.

Maserati does not want to say much about the engines. It should come as no surprise that a V8 is available. The brand speaks of a ‘new generation Maserati engines’, which are built at Ferrari in Maranello. Of course, the new blocks are ‘more powerful and more economical’. Assume a further development of the traditional V8, but also count on a new V6, in several variants. Is the license plate (QP 530 HP) a subtle hint at horsepower numbers? Maserati says the top-of-the-line sedan sets new standards in performance, handling and driving pleasure.

The new Maserati Quattroporte will make its debut at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit in January. Come in the beautiful world of Maserati.
