Like brand new, this 2007 Maserati is absolutely gorgeous with only 6,000 - Engine The Maserati Quattroporte S is fitted with a new and powerful eight cylinder V90° engine with a capacity of 4,691 cc. It develops 430 bhp at 7,000 rpm and has a peak torque of 490 Nm at 4,750 rpm. Instantly recognisable thanks to its distinctive red cylinder head covers, the 4.7 litre unit is the ultimate in the new family of wet sump engines. It was specially developed to guarantee the Maserati Quattroporte S an even more involving drive, the smoothest gear shifts and top draw performance. Upping the capacity from 4,244 to 4,691 cc was obtained by increasing the bore and stroke and analysing the engine’s longitudinal mass. The technical solutions adopted make the Quattroporte S’s engine extremely reliable, quiet and also result in reduced friction. All this means lower fuel consumption and the chance to obtain precise phasing that means better refilling of the cylinders. These characteristics fully embody the positive features of the most recent Maserati engines: they are high powered and go up and down the rev range quickly. Having 82% of the torque on tap at just 2,500 rpm means the 4.7 litre V8 makes light work of overtaking during long journeys and gives the engine a thorough workout through the entire rev range. The 4.7 litre power unit’s performance is excellent: it produces 430 bhp, reaches a top speed of 280 km/h and sprints from 0-100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds. Chassis and suspension The Maserati Quattroporte S’s chassis makes it an involving drive while also improving safety and comfort. Its torsional stiffness and flexibility results in well-balanced handling and enhances the driving experience. The car’s front and rear double wishbone suspension, with forged aluminium arms and hubs, features ‘Antidive’ and ‘Antisquat’ geometry. This prevents the front end dipping under braking and the rear end squatting under acceleration. The suspension on the sports version of the Maserati flagship has been further upgraded with Skyhook suspension. Skyhook controls the variable damping and boasts a new setting that allows the optimal balance in roadholding. There are also new valves that improve the way the springs and dampers work. The Skyhook system The Skyhook system electronically controlled suspension system provides automatic and continual adjustment of the damping. Any bumps in the road’s surface are absorbed and on-board comfort levels remain as high as ever as the system adapts to the driver’s style behind the wheel. Skyhook boasts software that is exclusive to the Quattroporte S and conceived to offer the maximum in comfort on the move. Skyhook acts by using acceleration sensors that detect movement on all four wheels and the body and instantly adjusts the dampers accordingly. There are two different settings: Normal and Sport. In Normal mode, the ride is softer, favouring comfort. The driver can switch to Sport mode at any time to stiffen the ride and bring out Quattroporte S’s sporty nature and performance. Steering The electronic power steering is direct and precise at speed so the driver knows what the car is doing. At the same time, it is light and easy to use at lower speeds and when manoeuvring. Weight distribution The Maserati Quattroporte S’s weight distribution is unique in its category with a slight bias towards the rear end (49% front and 51% rear). This split transforms the luxury saloon into a car where performance is favoured and that rewards the driver with its superb handling. This set up was achieved by shifting the engine behind the front axle to maximise traction and acceleration while also making the car stable and perfectly balanced. Brakes The new Maserati Quattroporte S comes with a high performance braking system developed by Brembo. The 360 mm brake discs benefit from dual-cast technology: cast iron for the braking surface and an aluminium hub. This set up takes advantage of the consistent performance of cast iron at high temperatures and from the lightweight aluminium. The six-piston callipers, of different diameters, are in a single aluminium block. These keep their shape better than two piece calliper sets and offer unbeatable stopping power. The system is completed by the ABS, that stops the wheels locking under braking, and EBD, that distributes the braking force between the front and the rear axles; both systems are integrated into the Maserati Stability Programme (MSP). This solution offers excellent performance both in terms of stopping distance and resistance to brake fade, even under intense use. The Quattroporte S’s brakes are always prompt in responding and live up to the standards you would expect from a Maserati saloon. Lights The new Quattroporte S uses front and rear lights that have been developed to offer only the best in each individual function. The use of LEDs makes a big impact on the car and is one of the elements that link this model to the Maserati GranTurismo. The most important lighting functions have been improved. The front xenon cluster now boasts the Adaptive Light Control system. This produces a brighter and clearer beam compared to conventional bulbs. The lights also automatically track the movements of the steering wheel so that the beam points to the inside of a curve (up to a maximum of 15º). For safety reasons, when the car is travelling above 120 km/h, the system returns to a traditional fixed position. The Daytime Running Light function is a useful addition and is made up of ten LEDs set along the bottom edge of the headlight. The indicators catch the eye and the front headlights are memorable for their side-marks that merge flawlessly with the outside edge of the car, with the wiper forming part of the cluster. The fog lights employ an altogether different set up and are located in the bumper to ensure a wider beam. This system is also used in the rear with 34 LEDs making up each light. This technology was employed because LEDs illuminate more quickly and produce a more intense beam than normal bulbs. They last longer, consume less energy and their performance does not dip over time.
