Bigger, lighter, sportier

Maserati Quattroporte GTS is the ultimate Grand Touring vehicle offering high-end sporty performance uniquely blended with Italian design and luxury materials.

The all-new Maserati Quattroporte GTS, the flagship of the Maserati model range, is now available in Muscat starting from RO55,000. Launched recently by Alfardan Motors, the official importer of Maserati in Oman, the sixth-generation Quattroporte is a significant leap forward that not only sets the high-technology tone for Maserati’s upcoming range of new models, but also remains faithful to Maserati’s long history of luxury sports sedans. It is the essence of Italian car design with a style dedicated to proportion, dynamism and purity that delivers new standards in quality in every area from design to development, fabrication and process controls.

The Quattroporte will once again shape Maserati’s future. It is the ultimate Grand Touring vehicle offering high-end sporty performance uniquely blended with Italian design and luxury materials. The new Quattroporte ensures that every journey is an unforgettable one. The first model of Maserati’s unparalleled strategic step in industrial growth, the new Quattroporte GTS is the start of a journey that will see the company’s sales increase by a factor of eight by 2015. It is an increase inspired by a near century of vehicles which define style, elegance, quality and performance. The flagship of the Maserati product range, the all-New Quattroporte is larger, lighter, more luxurious and more practical than the globally acclaimed car it replaces. With a 307km/h top speed, it’s also as fast as most two-door supercars.
The powerful engine and the large cabin are at the core of the Quattroporte’s design, dominated by a long, powerful nose and a concave Trident grille and providing a clear link to both the outgoing Quattroporte and the GranTurismo. Even with all of its new technology, the new Quattroporte remains true to Maserati’s roots. Its V8 twin turbo makes it not only the fastest four-door Maserati ever built, but also the most powerful and the most economical as well.

The direct-injection engine family will boast a 3.8-litre V8 and a 3.0-litre V6, both of which are all new, twin turbo charged, designed by Maserati Powertrain and assembled by Ferrari at Maranello. The 3.8-litre V8 engine provides Maserati’s new performance benchmark, reaching 100km/h in just 4.7 seconds and achieving a 307km/h top speed. It is 20km/h faster than the previous Quattroporte Sport GT S and has up to 200Nm more torque as well. The V6 twin turbo doesn’t lack for performance, either, reaching 285km/h. With an eight-speed automatic transmission and both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations (V6), it is also the most secure all-weather performance car in Maserati’s history. The V6 Quattroporte S (rear-wheel drive) will be available in Oman from September 2013 starting at RO43,000.

To offset its scintillating performance, the V8 Maserati Quattroporte has lowered both its fuel consumption and emissions by 20 per cent over the previous model. The all-new architecture retains the Quattroporte’s traditionally exquisite handling thanks to its 50:50 weight distribution, a double-wishbone front suspension and a state-of-the-art five-link rear suspension. It can now deliver the added security and all-weather assurance of all-wheel drive as well.

It also delivers new standards in quality in every area from design, development, fabrication and process controls. It is produced in a new plant that combines Maserati’s traditions of craftsmanship with cutting-edge technologies that are able to guarantee outstanding quality by controlling even the smallest details.
