Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S Awards Edition
23rd February, 2010
Maserati will celebrate the Quattroporte at Geneva Motor Show
(4th-14th March 2010) with the unveiling of yet another new version, the Quattroporte Sport GT S "Awards
Six years after its release, the car that is now battling the likes of the Bentley Continental Flying
Spur, Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide in the luxury sports saloon segment is showing signs of
ageing. Maserati is celebrating the model with a superlative version, blending the elegance and sporty
stylishness of the brand's flagship, thanks to the combination of highly refined details, handcrafted
finishes and features with a decidedly sporty flair.
The Pininfarina designed Quattroporte has driven the renewal of the Maserati marque and, in doing so, has
become the best selling Maserati model of all time.
The Quattroporte Sport GT S "Awards Edition", which is based on the range topping Quattroporte Sport GT S,
aims to combine in one car all the features that have made the Trident flagship a benchmark for its segment:
o The unique and elegant styling, mixed with a hint of sporting flair due to the eye-catching features
adopted on both the exterior and interior fittings;
o Driving enjoyment, because the "Awards Edition" is based on the Quattroporte Sport GT S, which boasts
dynamic and top-class performance;
o The craftsmanship of the hand-finished details which make each car a unique product.
The new Quarzo fuso finishing - a pearlescent metallic grey with golden nuanced colouring -
exclusive to this model, makes the exterior immediately recognisable, and highlights the body's elegant lines.
The burnished treatment used on the exterior chrome parts, as well as on the side air vents and radiator
surround, also blends with the 20" Multi Trident dark grey rims with satin finish.
The brake system, which replicates the system fitted to the Quattroporte Sport GT S and uses dual-cast
technology, is further enhanced by the hand-polished callipers both at the front and rear. With the Maserati
Quattroporte Sport GT S "Awards Edition", Maserati and Brembo are introducing on the market for the first
time polished callipers, treated with precision mechanical processes and featuring a hand finish which gives
them their special mirror-like appearance and enhances their sporty credentials at the same time.
The interior also bears witness to the combination of sporting flair and craftsmanship that has always
characterised the Maserati flagship sedan. The Poltrona Frau leather of the seats is combined with perforated
Alcantara with a new undulated pattern, and with the headlining in Alcantara. Completing the interior are the
special brushed aluminium door sills and Piano Black satin-finish wood mouldings.
The boot with a full black trim has been embellished further with chrome details and a leather side pocket.
The attention to details has even been extended to the mats, which are made of even richer and softer
A special exterior "Awards Edition" series plate completes the ‘Awards Edition’ and makes an already unique
car even more unmistakable.
The Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S "Awards Edition" will be available in Australia in early 2011, when
local pricing and specification will be announced.
