Modena â 28 August 2007 â The new Quattroporte Sport GT S will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motorshow for its worldwideÂ previewÂ (theÂ MaseratiÂ press conference will take place at 11.30 on stand A06, in Hall 6.0). The Quattroporte Sport GT S is the ultimate expression ofÂ Maseratiâs saloon sportiness.
Exclusively for those looking for an even stronger sporting edge in aÂ luxuryÂ saloon, the Quattroporte Sport GT S, equipped with an automatic 6-speed gearbox, stands out for its exceptional dynamic behaviour and uncompromised handling.
This result was obtained with the introduction of new suspension layout, featuring single rate dampers and a âracingâ set up. The Quattroporte Sport GT S sits 10mm lower at the front and 25mm at the rear compared to other versions of the Quattroporte, and also features new, stiffer springs and dampers.
The Quattroporte Sport GT S boasts a unique braking system developed in collaboration with Brembo. This innovative technology uses dual-castÂ brake discs, and this is the first time such a set up has been employed on a roadÂ car.
Unlike traditional cast iron discs, dual-cast discs are made of two materials, cast iron and aluminium, to ensure optimised braking,Â improving performanceÂ in the most extreme conditions and providing greater resistance to fade even atÂ the highestÂ temperatures. The Quattroporte Sport GT Sâs new braking system also benefits from new mono-block, six-piston callipers at the front and tyres developed especially for thiscarÂ (front 245/35-R20 and rear 295/30-R20). The increased size of the rear tyres allows optimum use of theMaseratiâs V8 power, whilst the new tyre compound helpsÂ the brakesÂ and set-up to guarantee a superior level of handling and driving emotion.
The Quattroporte Sport GT Sâs exterior is distinguished by a more aggressive look. Along with the black-chrome mesh front grille, a characteristic element of sporty Maseratis, the side window trims and the two double exhaust pipes are also in black, whilst door handles are in the same colour as the body of theÂ car.
The Quattroporte Sport GT S is fitted with eye-catching dark-chrome 20â², seven spoke alloy wheels.
Even the choice of material for the interior of the Quattroporte Sport GT S reflects theÂ carâs sporty character. Traditional Poltrona Frau leather has been combined with Alcantara, which covers the central zone of the seats, theÂ interior doorÂ panels and the steering wheel.Â MaseratiÂ has previously used Alcantara for the interior of the Trofeo cars and the MC12.
The dashboard is finished in newÂ carbon fibreÂ with aluminium treads, whilst front seats are characterised by a new, more cosseting sporty shape.
