The Maserati Quattroporte is a luxury four-door saloon made by Maserati in
Italy. The name translated from Italian literally means "four doors". There have
been five generations of the car, each separated by a period of roughly five
At the height of Fiat's styling prowess, Maserati was confident to be more
adventurous with Quattroporte IV from 1994. It was designed by Marcello Gandini,
also known for penning the Lamborghini Countach, Urraco, Espada, Miura, Lancia
Stratos, and Bugatti EB110. The new car was smaller, very aerodynamic (0.31 cd),
and featured Gandini's trademark angular rear wheel arch.
A 2.8 L twin turbo V6 was installed, producing 284 PS (209 kW), reaching a top
speed of 255 km/h (158 mph) while the Italians even had a "tax special" 2 litre
version producing 287 PS (211 kW) on their price list. Both engines came from
the familiar Maserati Biturbo engine catalog. The 2.8 was not even offered in
the home market until a year after its introduction. A V8 3.2 L Biturbo was
announced in 1995, coming from the Maserati Shamal, developing 335 PS (246 kW)
and reaching an approximate 270 km/h (168 mph).
After Ferrari took over Maserati in July 1997, it introduced a Quattroporte
Evoluzione for 1998. It featured 400 new or improved parts out of a total 800,
and also benefitted from improvements to Maserati's manufacturing methods.
The Evoluzione saw the famous oval Maserati clock disappear from the interior.
Production ended in May of 2001.
