Maserati Quattroporte IV

After almost 10 years of being absent in the market for four door sport saloons, Maserati returned with the fourth series of the Quattreporte. This time around the Quattroporte was designed by Marcello Gandini, noticably recognizable by the slanting wheel arches at the back of the car. Only one year ealier Maserati was acquired from de Tomaso by Fiat and the Quattroporte was the first Maserati to be launched. Development however started still in the de Tomaso ownership, having distinct design features from the 1992 Maserati Ghibli. The car was launched featuring two V6 Maserati engines, a 2.0 Liter and a 2.8 Liter, both with turbos (inheritance from the Biturbo era). One year later the 3.2 Liter V8 was introduced in the Quattroporte, coming from the exquisite Shamal. Only three years later the car was completely overhauled by its new owner and reintroduced as “Evoluzione”.

    2. Maserati Quattroporte Royale | Quattro-Porte - Four Door Sport Saloons

      [...] The Royale was introduced to Maserati’s clients late 1986 and was basically a Quattroporte III with some minor cosmetic changes and an ultra luxurious interior. The body of the car was slightly redesigned with more rounded off body panels, new wheels and the prominent silver center side skirt. The engine was uprated to 295 HP. Main luxus was however the interior: it featured beter soundproofing and more luxurious leather seats, new extras such as automatic climate controle, a cigar lighter, a portable phone and a bar for the rear passengers. The rear seats were separate and both fully adjustable, also both passengers got retractable wood-veneered tables in the side doors and two vermeil/pewter beakers stowed behind the central door pillars. The Quattroporte Royale was built on special order until 1990, when Maserati was sold by de Tomaso to Fiat Group. Fiat introduced a new 4-door Maserati in 1994: the Quattroporte IV. [...]
