2011 Maserati Quattroporte Sedan

2011 Maserati Quattroporte Review

(4 Stars)  Stylish break from the expected

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Maserati's Sedan, the Quattroporte, which literally means four doors, isn't the fastest four door out there, but it is possibly one of the sexiest. It exudes Italian luxery from every angle. It very much resembles what a four door Ferarri much be like. This comparison if further bolstered by the fact that Maserati and Ferrari are sister companies and the Quattroporte actually uses Ferrari sourced engines.

A heavy car, to be sure, at 4400 lbs. However due to some very sound technology and careful engineering, it feels much lighter behind the wheel than it actually is. The ride is softer and suppler than many of the other Italian cars, tuned to meet the tastes of more American drivers.

The Quattroporte is available in three trim levels. While the base model is a well appointed, high performance luxury sedan, the top trim levels: S, and GT S, offer even more performance. The base 4.2 liter V-8 is good for 400 HP and 339 Ft. – Lbs. of torque. The high end 4.7 liter V-8 brings this up to 425 Hp and 361 Ft. – Lbs. of torque.
