For car buyers that desire a premium sedan, an exceptional offering can be had in the Maserati Quattroporte. The Quattroporte is all about attitude and this car delivers an exciting ride. The vehicle has a Ferrari sourced motor making it even more appealing.

The Quattroporte sedan is a four door car; that’s why it’s called the Quattroporte. This car has been on the market for a while now. The 2011 has gotten some visual refreshments and it rivals the S550 by Mercedes Benz. This car has a price tag that is lower than that assigned to the Maserati too. The cost of the vehicle is quite lofty but the consumer won’t experience buyer’s remorse.

The Maserati Quattroporte base configuration has a 4.2 Liter V-8 engine that can conquer zero to sixty in 5.5 second’s time.

The same basic shape has been in production for years and that’s no bad thing. With the addition of an updated 6.5-inch multimedia head unit into all Quattroportes, the interior might not feel as outdated as it once did. There are millions of possible interior combinations utilizing all manner of leather, wood, and Alcantara trim.
