THE MASERATI QUATTROPORTE

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 sedan. 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 spring 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 Quattroporte III marked the last of the hand-built Italian legend.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Definitively a vehicle hailing from the 1980s, this Maserati's cool shade of pale-yellow paint and caramel leather colored interior provided an alternative, European style of luxury.

According to the documents on file, the vehicle was located in California during the first portion of its life and was later under the under the ownership of the Spain family for many years. Used as a daily driver, the 4 doors were used to their full potential thanks to many trips runs with the children to school. Despite its frequent use however, the car has remained in wonderful shape and the many cow's worth of leather barely show any wear. Outside, the story is the same with only minor blemishes to be found on the body and paint. Little is to be found in the way of maintenance records unfortunately, and a servicing is most likely needed prior to returning the car to daily road use.

A well-preserved example such as this should make an interesting addition to any collection, and is a fine showcase of what luxury meant in the 1980s.
