Bringing out the sports car that lurks in the Italian sedan.
One of the things that makes the Maserati Quattroporte so unique in the large premium segment is that it offers a blend of luxury and Italian sport with room for four. And while a great deal of that sporty character is present in the production car, some are in search of a little bit more.
The newest Maserati tuning program from MR Car Design transforms the Quattroporte into an athletic and stylish sport sedan. Instead of installing a few spoilers and calling it a day, MR Car Design instead decided to focus on a few elements that would make driving more exciting. The 4.2-liter V-8 that emits a sexy exhaust note was given an ECU tune that improved output to 430 horsepower and 354 lb-ft (480 Nm) of torque. MR Car Design also installed a pressure-optimized stainless steel exhaust system that ends in four 76-mm tips and unleashes a ferocious growl.
The exterior of the Maserati Quattroporte also received some simple but noticeable exterior upgrades. New 9 x 22 front and 10.5 x 22 rear Vossen wheels with 245/30 R22 and 295/25 R22 tires and 15 mm rear spacers were fitted to not only increase traction, but to give the Quattroporte an exclusive look. The fitment is complemented by a set of H&R springs that can lower the car by 20 to 30 mm. The unique black exterior is finished with black window tint in all six windows.
The MR Car Design Maserati Quattroporte tuning program is currently available. Pricing has not been released.
