6th-Generation Maserati Quattroporte joins the line-up at Naza Italia

 2013 Maserati Quattroporte. 6th generation, front Naza Italia yesterday brought forth the 6th-generation Maserati Quattroporte to expand on its exclusive Luxury Sports line-up. Since becoming the official importer and distributor in 2009, the new Maserati Quattroporte becomes only the four variant to be made available at Naza Italia’s sole Maserati Hub in Petaling Jaya.

Oozing with that unmistakable Maserati identity, the exterior of newest generation Quattroporte features a long, staunch nose. Its concave Trident grille also provides a clear link to both the outgoing Quattroporte and the current GranTurismo.

The flagship of the Maserati Quattroporte range, the Quattroporte GTS, has dazzled luxury sports car aficionados with its 3.8-liter V8 Twin Turbo and become the most sought-after Maserati of current times. Now, the 307km/h, 390kW (530 hp) V8 Quattroporte is being joined by a more economical, more affordable and more environmentally-friendly 3.0-liter V6 Twin turbo powerplant that’s paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which all Quattroportes are instilled. The Twin turbo V6 engine utilizes much of the V8’s already-proven technology; including its variable valve timing, its valve drive system and its direct fuel injection. Opting for V6 power takes little away from the Quattroporte hallmark performance, delivering 301kW (410 hp) of power and 550Nm of torque and a 0 – 100km/h sprint in less than 5 seconds. The luxury Sports can reach a top speed of 285km/h, just 2km/h lesser than the V8 Quattroporte. The V8 Quattroporte is incidentally the fastest four-door Maserati ever built.

Inside, Maserati’s trademark ‘limousine’ comfort is sustained, while large, spacious and luxuriously appointed cabin remain at the core of the Quattroporte’s interior schematics. Traditional hand-crafted detailing continues in the Quattroporte’s cabin, with a roomier interior and the four, five-seat layouts. Cabin luxury leaps forward technically, too, with features like the Poltrona Frau premium quality fine grain extended leather interior upholstery, Alcantara Headlining, Maserati Touch Control screen with Navigation and reverse camera, an entertainment unit with 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system, INOX Sport pedals, USB with Aux-in, Bluetooth connectivity, radio, CD/MP3, and even an optional WLAN-based Wi-Fi. The Bower & Wilkins system is standard for V8 and optional for V6 version.
