Maserati Quattroporte at the 2005 Frankfurt Show

Two new versions of the model will appear on the exhibition stand in September: the Quattroporte Executive GT and the Quattroporte Sport GT.

The Quattroporte was first unveiled at the Frankfurt Motorshow in 2003, and first orders on the newest car from Maserati were taken the same day. Since then, the Quattroporte has been a bestseller in its category on the US, European and Asian markets.

Presented as a saloon car with two souls: elegant and comfortable but with a sporty performance, an extensive personalisation programme was developed for the Quattroporte, these new versions will enhance the car's dual character yet further.

Quattroporte EXECUTIVE GT

Distinguished by a blend of elegant eye-catching colours and refined wood veneer finishes for the interior, the Executive GT includes the following accessories:

Chrome mesh grille, side chrome grille, external identification plate, 9-spoke 19" ball-polished wheel rims, wood and leather steering wheel, roof section in Alcantara and a series of features dedicated to providing maximum comfort levels for passengers (among them comfort pack for the rear seats and stowable rear table in wood or titanium). Further personalisation options are available.

Quattroporte SPORT GT

The aggressive look is captured in the carbon fibre interior, 20" wheel rims with new design, external identification plate, sporty steering wheel and handbrake grip, aluminium pedal covers.

Among the dynamic features, the latest gearbox software for a 35% faster shifting, newly designed exhaust system delivering an even more sporty sound and specific Skyhook software for electronic suspensions and shock absorbers.
