With a wide range of options and features, including upholstery finishes, colors, and trim, it's quite easy to drive the Quattroporte's price much higher.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

Top speed is a claimed 191mph, and while the sprint to 62mph takes a mere 4.7secs, it’s the relentlessness of it all that’s so impressive.
by EVO (Dec, 2012)
In addition to the intoxicating sounds it makes, it has a sweet midrange response with over 80 percent of its torque available at 2,500 rpm – normal cruising speed on most highways.
by KBB (Mar, 2013)
The Quattroporte transmission also has a Low Grip mode that gives 2nd-gear starts and a Sport mode that shifts more firmly and at higher revs.4.7-liter V8 (Quattroporte S)434 horsepower @ 7,000 rpm361 lb-ft of torque @ 4,750 rpmEPA city/highway fuel economy: 12/18 mpg4.7-liter V8 (Quattroporte Sport GT S)444 horsepower @ 7,000 rpm376 lb-ft of torque @ 4,750 rpmEPA city/highway fuel economy: 12/18 mpg.

Powertrain

Transmission choices are yet to be announced, but plan on a six-speed manual and either the six-speed Cambiocorsa sequential manual gearbox or a conventional automatic, which is expected in this segment.

Transmission choices are yet to be announced, but plan on a six-speed manual and either the six-speed Cambiocorsa sequential manual gearbox or perhaps a conventional automatic, the latter of which is expected in this segment.

It will use smaller-displacement, twin-turbo engines, a V6 and a V8.

Engine

It was a full-sized, hand-built, V-8-powered sedan that combined a high level of luxury with gran turismo style road manners.
by MotorTrend (Jun, 2003)
Forty years ago, Maserati introduced its first Quattroporte: a full-size, handbuilt, V-8-powered sedan that combined a high level of luxury with gran turismo road manners.
by MotorTrend (Sep, 2003)
For starters, the twin-turbo engine is much more hushed than the crackling 4.7-litre V8 that powered the previous generation of Maserati Quattroporte (the engine continues in the Granturismo range) but in its place is a endless rush of turbo-enhanced torque, which delivers dramatically improved performance and makes this new Quattroporte the fastest regular production Maserati ever produced.
by EVO (Dec, 2012)

Handling

The hydraulic power steering, for instance, is rather low-geared, and somehow manages to provide sharp kickback if one of the front wheels encounters a rut or sudden compression yet little or no feel around the straight-ahead.
by EVO (May, 2013)
We recommend the Skyhook air suspension, as it tends to make the car feel just as buttoned-down while greatly improving ride comfort.
by The Car Connection (Aug, 2012)
The new Quattroporte is much more luxurious to travel in, but there’s no doubt it has lost some of its handling magic in the process.
by EVO (Dec, 2012)

Kind

But in the meantime, the boldly individual style of the 2013 model and the melodic bark of its naturally aspirated 4.7-liter V8 have appeal of their own, which we might remember wistfully a year from now.
by KBB (Mar, 2013)
Put crudely, the engine is essentially a chopped-down version of the V8 that the new QP was launched with at the beginning of 2013, but with its V angle closed from 90 to 60 degrees to make it rev more smoothly.
by EVO (May, 2013)
The good-looking V6 comes off the production line at Ferrari, Maranello and its stats are every bit as impressive as you might hope.
