Welcome to the sportiest Quattroporte yet

If the recently launched Sport GT version of Maserati’s flagship Quattroporte wasn’t quite sharp enough for you, now there’s yet another version to choose: the Sport GT S. The Italian firm is calling it the 'ultimate expression of Maserati’s flagship car sportiness'.

How so?

Power remains the same but the whole suspension set-up has been tightened. Maserati officials say single-rate dampers, a lower ride height (by 10mm at the front and 25mm at the back) and stiffer springs make the car better on twisty roads and more coupe-like to drive. It also has advanced dual-cast Brembo brakes, which employ lighter aluminium as well as traditional iron to create weight savings allowing bigger diameter front discs (up to 360mm) for higher resistance to ‘brake fade’, while retaining the same weight as before.
