Ultimate Dream Cars: Maserati Quattroporte
Imagine a vehicle where beauty, power, and comfort all combine into one elegant, dignified car. The 2017 Maserati Quattroporte integrates the necessary aspects of each attribute to create the ultimate luxury vehicle experience. With its large, contoured Maserati body combined with the sexy roars and powerful performance of a Ferrari engine, the Italian manufacturer’s latest vehicle satisfies the needs of any individual seeking a speedy, extravagant experience.
Underneath the hood, the Maserati Quattroporte GTS offers a 90 ° 3.8L V8 engine. The 523 HP engine easily meets the expectations of a product from Ferrari with a maximum speed of 193 mph and traveling 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds. Receiving 17 mpg, Maserati’s vehicle produces exceptional power by luxury standards. Sports mode enables the dream car to enhance its performance. By opening the quad exhaust pipes, the engine roars louder, as the vehicle receives a noticeable boost in speed capabilities.
In addition to the GTS model, the manufacturer also offers lower powered S and SQ4 models. Despite operating with a 60 ° V6 engine, both forms still provide impressive speed figures. With a maximum speed of 176 mph and accelerating from 0-60 mph in 4.8 seconds, the budget luxury models produce remarkable speed along with retaining the signature Ferrari growls from the engine. Additional, the smaller engines provide better gas milage at 18 mpg. Also the SQ4 implements all wheel drive, enabling the vehicle to maintain its impressive speed and performance when traveling through subpar road conditions.
While the engine produces extraordinary performance, the inside of the Maserati Quattroporte offers an experience of style and comfort. Immediately upon sitting in the driver’s seat, the signature Maserati navy blue accents within the gauges become apparent. The wood grains traveling down the center console and steering wheel contributes to the visual appeal of the vehicle. The leather seats and arm wrests add a stylish Italian elegance to the luxury car. Maserati’s option to upgrade to carbon fiber internal trims simply creates more of a sleek and suave design to the vehicle’s interior.
Complementing the beautiful cosmetic features, Maserati equipped its luxury vehicle with a plethora of comfort options for the driver and passengers. The 12-way adjustable leather front seats complement the adjustable and heated steering wheel, ensuring a person of any size fits comfortably and safely while driving. Also aiding in soothing the driving experiences involves the 8-speed automatic gear shifter. Manual mode allows drivers to change gears via the aluminum paddle shifters behind the wheel, allowing for a smooth driving experience.
As a result of the long body of the car, the back seat provides plenty of legroom for the tallest of passengers. Additionally, heated seats and automatic sunshades create the ultimate comfort experience for any backseat rider.
With its alluring exterior contours, stylish and comforting internal designs, and fast speed, the Maserati Quattroporte functions as a dream car exemplifying luxurious beauty. Few cars on the market combine exceptional performance with fascinating visuals in the same successful manner as the Italian manufacturer. With an MSRP of $ 145,500 for the GTS model, $109,500 for the Q4, and $103,400, the Quatrroporte competes in the market by delivering a luxury experience with a high performing engine.
