2019 Maserati Quattroporte GranSport
Even if the Maserati Quattroporte wasn’t a high-stepping, athletic vehicle, the level of comfort involved would be worth the price of admission. As well as individualisation touches like the corporate Tridents stitched into the headrests and the glorious, lush red leather upholstery in this particular car, the Quattroporte oozes class and convenience. Even details such as the powered rear window blind suggests lots of thought has gone into a car that is able to transport five people across entire continents in a day.
Ride Like a VIP
Every one of those occupants rates as a VIP, too, with four-zone climate-control air-conditioning, rear privacy glass, a powered sunroof, Alcantara roof lining and a mighty Bowers and Wilkins stereo system. Other touches include the keyless entry system, selectable drive modes, navigation, a reversing camera and heated front seats.
Crisp, Sharp & Seamless
Safety is taken care of with the latest driver aids and technology, and this car is fitted with Maserati’s factory driver-assistance package which includes forward-collision warning. The power comes from a V6 engine with twin turbochargers boosting power and torque, while a dual-clutch transmission ensures crisp, fast shifts that make for seamless progress.
Living the Sweet Life
And just in case you thought for a moment that the Quattroporte was not the stuff of legends, consider that one owner of the early Quattroporte models of the 1960s was none other than the male star of Fellini’s 1960 cinema classic La Dolce Vita, Marcello Mastroianni. In fact, Mastroianni was so smitten, he actually owned two Quattroportes. The sweet life indeed.
