2010 Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S revealed

The technical changes to the new Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S in respect to the Quattroporte S concern four areas:

- the mapping of the V8 4.7 litre engine, with power increased to 323kW;
- 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 also evident due to the interior and exterior stylistic choices:

- the new black grille 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-coloured 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 coloured" composite material.

Maserati and Aston Martin are the two brands where every single vehicle is just absolutely stunning.

Although Aston designs are starting to bore me even though I never thought it was impossible! I really have respect for the AMV8. I love the proportions and everything is PERFECT!

My old roomate had an 06 or 07 quattroporte and the engine sounded amazing. However the only beef I had with that car was the transmission was very sluggish and too much body roll. I'm going to assume that on the new ones they arent like that?

I'm not a fan of the Quattroporte. The Maser GT only does so much for me.
