Footnotes

  • Styled by Frua and introduced in 1963, the Frua-style, V8-powered Quattroporte was a landmark model for Maserati, being the Modena firm's first four-door saloon and its first car of unitary construction. The successor Quattroporte 'II' deployed the V6 engine and front-wheel-drive package of the Citroën SM in a body by Bertone but did not long survive Maserati's take-over by Alessandro De Tomaso. Its successor - the Ital Design-styled Quattroporte III - arrived in 1978. Maserati V8 power was restored for this, the third of the line and the 'III' reverted to rear wheel drive using a lengthened Kyalami floorpan and all-independent suspension.
    In 1994 Maserati revived the 'Quattroporte' name, applying it to the fourth series of luxury sports saloons that had begun some 30 years previously. The newcomer was intended to compete at the top of its market sector with the likes of the BMW 540i and Jaguar XJR, the first model released being powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.0-litre V6, with 2.8-litre V6 and 3.2-litre V8-engined versions following, both of which retained Maserati's trademark forced induction. Based on the BiTurbo platform, the Quattroporte IV offered spacious accommodation equipped to a standard that would not have shamed a limousine, featuring burl elm embellishment, Connolly leather trim, air conditioning, pre-tensioned seat belts, powered seat adjustment and much more besides. Top speed of the V8 model was 160mph.
    This V8-engined Quattroporte 'IV' was purchased at auction by the current owner in January 2011. A right-hand drive, automatic transmission model, 'T288 HTR' comes with full ownership and service history, the latter mainly with renowned marque specialists Bill McGrath Ltd, and since acquisition has been maintained and used regularly by the vendor. Described by him as in generally very good condition, the car is offered with current MoT/tax and Swansea V5C registration document.
