THE MASERATI QUATTROPORTE

Styled by Frua and introduced in 1963, the 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 Quattroporte II deployed the V6 engine and front-wheel-drive package of the Citroen SM in a body by Bertone, but did not long survive Maserati's takeover by Alessandro De Tomaso. Its successor - the Giorgetto Giugiaro-styled Quattroporte III - arrived in 1978.

The chassis was related to that of the Maserati Kyalami, in turn derived from the De Tomaso Longchamp and therefore ultimately related to the De Tomaso Deauville luxury saloon. Front suspension was of the double wishbone type, with single coaxial dampers, coil springs, and an anti-roll bar. The rear axle used a peculiar layout very similar to Jaguar independent rear suspension. Each cast aluminum hub carrier was linked to the chassis only by a single lower wishbone, the half shafts doubling as upper control arms, and was sprung by twin coaxial dampers and coil springs units. Rear brakes were mounted inboard, and the calipers bolted directly to the housing of the differential. The engine was an evolution of Maserati's own all-aluminum, four overhead cam V8, fed by four Weber carburetors.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Completed at the Modena based Maserati factory in May of 1986, this beautiful Quattroporte was destined for the American market. The car presents wonderfully inside and out; testimony to the low odometer reading of less than 46,000 miles. The car has been repainted in the original black exterior color, reportedly by noted hotrod painter Junior Conway, and presents beautifully. The interior radiates class and elegance, and the cars 4.9-liter performance can keep up with most sedans on the road today. Offered from a prominent San Diegan collection, this smart Maserati must be one of the best examples available anywhere.
