Super Cars: The 2018 Maserati Quattroporte

Maserati Family

The 2018 Maserati Quattroporte is the first super saloon car in the world, filling a gap in the market that drivers may not have realized existed. With the Quattroporte, Maserati aims to deliver a vehicle that is spacious and comfortable on long drives while still providing excitement. The path to the Quattroporte took more than 100 years, according to the automaker. This auto certainly meets expectations in terms of luxury and power.


Quattroporte GranLusso

The GranLusso and GranSport models have unique interiors that those with refined tastes will appreciate. The GranLusso has a personalized Ermenegildo Zegna label on the sun visors to remind you that this is an exclusive auto. You will find bespoke silk interiors that are only in Maseratis. This trim also includes a leather and wood steering wheel, power foot pedals, wood trim, four-zone climate control, heated rear seats, and a power rear sunblind.


The GranSport trim delivers a luxurious yet sporty feeling that is perfect for those who enjoy thrills but want the best. The leather sports seats in front and rear have firm sculpting for maximum body support no matter how much you test the Quattroporte’s engine. The leather steering wheel has an ergonomic design so you can enjoy precise engagement and control. The long gearshift panels feature cool-touch aluminum that is lightweight. In addition, the dashboard has a high-gloss wood trim in piano black. This model’s styling is rounded out by the stainless-steel sports pedals.

Nerissimo Edition

There is also an impressive Nerissimo Edition for exhilarating style with a focus on black. It includes Solid Black exterior paintwork, 21-inch alloy wheels that are Titano glossy black, and both exhaust tips and LED headlights with dark trims. The brake calipers, door handles, window trim, and grille bars are all black, as well. The black theme continues inside with the black piano trim for the center console and black headlining, dashboard, sports steering wheel, and sports seats. The model also has a rear parking camera featuring dynamic gridlines and privacy glass.

Always Luxurious

One of the standout elements of the 2018 Maserati Quattroporte is its extensive luxury. The familiar front grille has the brand’s iconic Trident along with 10 vertical chrome bars. It also has plunging character lines, new standard adaptive full LED headlights, a long wheelbase, and quad chrome tailpipes.

The interior luxury is a given, with a discreet yet dynamic flourish on the dashboard with its blue Maserati clock. Between the 7-inch TFT display and the 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display, you can clearly see everything you control with the extra rotary.
