Maserati and sedan do not belong in the same sentence. I don’t know what Maserati or the designers were thinking when they unveiled the Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S, but I will tell you one thing.
If the specifications are correct, it should be one hell of a ride.
The Italian car company have designed the Quattrporte to sit 10mm and 25 mm lower to the ground, in the front and back respectively. Improved handling dynamics have been developed with the use of a new suspension system, which comprises single rate dampers and a racing set up.
Now, with the new springs and dampers, riding quality will be reduced (owing to the stiffness), but handling will be an improvement. And Brembo brakes (never before used on a road car) use dual cast brake discs (cast iron and aluminum), which optimizes braking power.
And the 433-horsepower wielding, 4.8 liter v8 engine-carrying machine rolls around on nice, dark chrome 20 inch rims. This “sedan” can go from zero to 100km/h in 5.3 seconds, according to Maserati. And performance meets style, with all metal treated in dark chrome, as befits this model.
To see the car in action, watch this:
