The first twelve Maserati Quattroporte Automatic have arrived in the UK.
Maserati dealers from all over the country gathered yesterday at five-star hotel The Vineyard at Stockcross where Maserati GB's Managing Director Andrea Antonnicola symbolically handed over the keys.
In keeping with its role as a luxurious grand tourer, the Quattroporte Automatic offers six speed automatic transmission, developed in conjunction with ZF. However, should the road invite a more sporty driving style, the driver can select manual sequential shifting by using the gearlever on the central tunnel, or by engaging the Sport mode.
With its engine being located behind the front axle, more weight is transferred to the centre of the car, so that it is remarkably well balanced: 49% in the front, 51% in the rear. Traction and acceleration are then further enhanced, due to the additional load over the rear driving wheels.
The Maserati Quattroporte Automatic goes officially on sale in the UK tomorrow, February 14 at a starting price of £77,000 (OTR), the same as the Maserati DuoSelect version.
