The New Quattroporte Sport GT S Debuting at 2009 NAIAS

On the 70th anniversary of Maserati's first Indianapolis 500 win

Modena - December 22nd, 2008 - The new Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S sets yet another milestone in terms of sportiness in the high performance luxury sedan segment of the automotive market. Conceived and developed as "a real driving machine in the guise of a luxury sedan," the Quattroporte Sport GT S is the ultimate expression of Maserati's sportiness in the Quattroporte range.  

The technical changes to the new Quattroporte Sport GT S in respect to the Quattroporte S concern four areas:
The mapping of the V8 4.7 liter engine, with power increased to 323kW (433 HP)
The gearshift management software, with new features designed to increase driving enjoyment
The front and rear suspension system featuring single-rate dampers, stiffer springs and lower ride height
The sports exhaust controlled by pneumatic valves for a deep, throaty and captivating sound

The sportier and more aggressive look is evident also by virtue of the interior and exterior stylistic choices:
The new black grill with concave vertical fins featuring the Trident logo with red accents, typical of the sportier versions of Maserati models
The new headlights, in metallic titanium finish
The side and rear "shadow line", which includes black finishing around the doors, body-colored door handles and black twin oval exhaust pipes
The new M-design seats with perforated Alcantara® and leather upholstery
The standard trim in Titantex, a "titanium colored" composite material
