Launched: 2018 Maserati Quattroporte GTS
The GTS will do 0-100kph in 4.7s, while you sit back in your expensive suit
Four years after launching the Quattroporte, Maserati has now launched the 2018 Quattroporte GTS in India.
Under the hood sits a 3.8-litre V8 good for 530bhp. Combine that with 710Nm of torque and an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, and you get a car which Maserati claims can hit the 100kph mark in 4.7s and will go up to a top speed of 310kph.
The Quattroporte GTS has been introduced with two trim options: GranLusso and GranSport. While the GranLusso receives features like Silk Edition interiors, Radica wood trim and 20-inch wheels, the GranSport gets 21-inchers, sport seats, sport steering wheel and paddle shifters. The GTS has five driving modes: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport, and ICE (Increased Control & Efficiency) mode. The car is also equipped with the latest safety systems like lane keeping assist, highway assist system, forward collision warning plus, blind spot detection and cruise control. While the Lusso is offered with eight interior leather trim options and seven wood finishes, the Sport trim receives ten interior leather options and the same number of wood finishes. If you’re going to configure your Maserati, make sure you take a few days off work, because you’ll need that time to make up your mind.
Inside, the infotainment system comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and wifi compatibility. The car is fitted with a standard 900-watt, 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, but if you are an audiophile, then you could tick the option of the Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system with 15 speakers and a 1,280 watt amplifier.
Priced at Rs 2.7 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi), of course it’s eye-wateringly expensive, but then, so is a suit from Savile Row. And you wouldn’t be caught dead in a Maserati in anything else now, would you?
