There are prestige cars and there are supercars but there is something inherently sophisticated and perhaps a little aloof about a Maserati that sets it apart; more for the connoisseur, if you will.
The Maserati Quattroporte oozes refined elegance; a distinguished classiness combined with an exclusivity that attracts attention, without the designers having to resort to a brash array of bulbous scoops and air dams. The designers being Pininfarina, who in June 2008 no doubt, celebrated the launch of the reworked Maserati Quattroporte.
The changes, although subtle, were necessary in order to incorporate technological and aerodynamic advancements. Most noticeable is the front grille with its vertical slats and trident emblem, which allows a larger volume of air to pass, cooling the powerful engines.
New lighting units have been introduced, with larger headlights incorporating a band of ten LEDs alongside an integrated washer and below the Bi-xenon main beam. At the rear, the striking tail-light cluster features no less than 34 LEDs performing a variety of lighting functions with only the reversing light using conventional methods.
A new Adaptive Light Control system is standard and, for the first time, the Maserati Quattroporte has a Daytime Running Light function.The Maserati Quattroporte doesn't have proximity, hands-free opening but with everything else on board, it is easily forgiven. Besides, as it is not the sort of car that you take to the grocery shopping, the driver is unlikely to be carrying bags of shopping. That said, I did raise a few eyebrows at my local supermarket.
