Lorenzo Ramaciotti, Head of Maserati Design Center, describes the new Quattroporte as a high performance luxury sports sedan that drastically redefines classic Maserati. Its style is the culmination of Maserati design principles, including the harmony of composition and dynamism of lines, replete with Italian elegance. In comparison to previous models it is larger in size but full of grace that showcases the sporty nature of this elegant vehicle.
Sexy on the Outside
Previous model characteristics have been intentionally maintained, including the three side vents, the front grill and the triangular C pillar. Newly introduced are style and functional features such as the three frameless side windows and strong belt line running through the side, giving the new Quattroporte a look and feel of bold brilliance. New front and rear lights illustrate how strong functional elements stylistically converge with soft quality surfaces.
Fierce on the Inside
Maserati’s Quattroporte has perfected both inner and outer beauty. Eternally famed for innovative design, the new 3.8 liter twin-turbo Quattroporte V8 engine raises the manufacturer’s tradition to even higher levels of excellence. This exquisitely engineered engine uses the most sophisticated technology ever installed on a Maserati car and is capable of generating 530 horses and more than 520 foot lbs of torque in over boost. This superb design enables the Quattroporte to spring from 0 to 60 in less than 4.8 seconds and achieve a maximum speed of about 200 mph.
Towards the end of May, Maserati approved the ContiSportContact 5 P tire for its latest automotive star. This is the first acceptance that the Hanover tire specialist has ever received from the internationally acclaimed sports car manufacturer. Maserati has approved a total of six tires with 19-to 21-inch diameters that will be fitted in line with equipment requirements and engine size, according to CarBodyDesign.com. Continental tires showcases its ContiSportContact 5 P as a premier, high-tech sports tire. These high performance sports tires are approved for speeds of up to 198 mph.
The ContiSportContact 5 P is the sportiest and most high-tech Continental tire produced with its asymmetrical tread ribs, together with offset tread blocks and a high silica rubber compound. The 5P is no doubt the pinnacle of all its sibling Continental Tires at TireBuyer.com.
