Maserati revived the ‘Quattroporte’ name in 1994, applying it to the fourth series of luxury sports saloons that had begun as far back as 1963. 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. The latter unit produced 335bhp, good enough to endow the aerodynamically efficient Quattroporte with a top speed approaching 170mph.
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. This V8 engine Quattroporte has manual transmission and leather interior. It is presented in generally good condition and is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner. A fantastic opportunity to obtain an unmolested piece of Maserati history.
