CA car since new. Italian boutique automaker Maserati maintains its time-tested ability to turn out sensual and highly desirable supercars that appeal to both the mind and the heart. The Quattroporte (which literally translates into “four-door”) is a rear-drive sedan that matches world-class performance dynamics with emotional styling in ways that few other cars can equal. The Quattroporte’s Pininfarina-penned bodywork fits like an Italian designer suit, rich in athletic character and offering elegant detailing, such as a subtle ridge line that carries from the front fenders to the car’s upswept rear flanks, a flowing C-pillar treatment, paired dual chrome exhaust tips integrated into the rear valance panel and the bright “Maserati” in script across its squared-up decklid. Sensual cabin appointments match supple leathers, alcantara and fine hardwoods. The analog main gauges are legible and key controls are arrayed in a largely user-friendly manner. Both driver and front passenger are coddled by 14-way power front seats that provide outstanding comfort and lateral support. Although happy to motor about town as a quiet and refined — if undeniably high-profile — personal transporter, the Quattroporte Executive GT is stunningly adept at carving through corners on your favorite twisty back road. The steering is precise and well-weighted and, at the touch of a button, the adjustable Skyhook suspension transitions the Quattroporte into a quite civilized but very effective “Sport” mode that interconnects shock valving and slip-control functions to impart a more aggressive edge to the mix. The ZF-designed automatic delivers impressively quick but smooth shifts, whether you let it do all the work or you select its more aggressively-programmed Sport mode and manually change up or down using the traditional console-mounted lever or F1-style paddles on the steering column.
