2019 Maserati Quattroporte
The 2018 Maserati Quattroporte is the storied automaker’s answer to a range of flagship sedans including the prestigious Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the performance-focused Porsche Panamera and the more fashion-conscious Jaguar XJ. While Maserati’s Italian roots and exoticism are two of the Quattroporte’s biggest draws, its Ferrari-built engines and available Ermenegildo Zegna interior treatments deliver on the promise of performance and style on which the brand’s mystique was built.
The best Italian designers have been involved in developing the design language of the Quattroporte throughout its 55-year history. In 1963, the first Quattroporte seamlessly fused the qualities of speed, style and luxury in a sleek body designed by Pietro Frua – and ever since, Maserati has been considered a master of sports sedan design.
The second-generation version in 1974 was designed by Bertone but it was Giorgetto Giugiaro’s 1979 Quattroporte that saw great success. Marcello Gandini redefined the flagship sedan with his compact 1994 Quattroporte, while Pininfarina’s 2003 model set the segment’s design standard for almost a decade.
