Maserati have tweaked the Quattroporte Sport to improve this high performance luxury sedan. The new Quattroporte Sport GT S will be unveiled at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The technical changes to the new Quattroporte Sport GT S in respect to the Quattroporte S concern four areas:  

  • the mapping of the V8 4.7 litre engine, with power increased to 323kW;  
  • the gearshift management software, with new features designed to increase driving enjoyment;  
  • the front and rear suspension system featuring single-rate dampers, stiffer springs and lower ride height; 
  • the sports exhaust controlled by pneumatic valves for a deep, throaty and captivating sound.

The sportier and more aggressive look is also evident due to the interior and exterior stylistic choices:  

  • the new black grille with concave vertical fins featuring the Trident logo with red accents, typical of the sportier versions of Maserati models;  
  • the new headlights, in metallic titanium finish;  
  • the side and rear “shadow line”, which includes black finishing around the doors, body-coloured door handles and black twin oval exhaust pipes;  
  • the new M-design seats with perforated Alcantara® and leather upholstery;  
  • the standard trim in Titantex, a “titanium coloured” composite material.
