2014 Maserati Quattroportes
By Todd Schafer on February 25, 2014
The sixth-generation of Maserati Quattroportes was first introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January of 2013. Chief of product development Roberto Corradi stressed the fact that the automobile was entirely redone and redesigned, and it has Ferrari-built powerplants. Other than the powerplant, this newest generation of models was fashioned completely in-house at an exclusive Maserati-only department at the Fiat Group Centro Stile design center. The three trim levels are the Quattroporte S, Quattroporte S Q4, and Quattroporte GTS.
The GTS is among the most powerful of the crew, boasting a Ferrari-built 3.8 L V8 engine that produces 523 horse power and 479 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheel drive luxury sedan can reach 62 mph in 4.7 seconds and are able to hit a top speed of 191 miles per hour. The S and S Q4 are equally powered by a 3.0 L V6 which provides 404 horsepower and 406 foot-pounds of torque.
