2008 Maserati Quattroporte
This 2008 Maserati Quattroporte is a beautifully kept Italian super saloon finished in a gorgeous colour combination. It is powered by a 4.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8 engine outputting 294kW and 460Nm to the rear wheels. This car is fitted with a six-speed automatic transmission which allows it to run from zero to 100km/h in 5.6 seconds and on to a top speed of 270km/h. The car currently shows 48,115km on its odometer since new.
Maserati’s Quattroporte is seen as the ultimate Italian business-express sedan, wearing an attractive Pininfarina-styled design. First unveiled in 2003, the fifth-generation Quattroporte arrived on scene to compete against esteemed luxury cars from German marques like Mercedes-Benz and Audi. A key difference to its rivals is the passion and heritage evoked by the Italian alternative, which is first and foremost a driver’s car. Little known is the fact that the Quattroporte nameplate has been around since the 1960s, but the fifth-generation cars really elevated its profile with the Ferrari-derived V8 engine. Continuous improvements to both ride and handling saw later cars, such as this one, the more desirable of the bunch, though every Quattroporte is a joyous drive.
Presented in Bordeaux Pontevecchio over a Cream leather interior, this stunning specification is highlighted by lashings of exterior chrome and interior woodgrain trim. This is an update model year 2008 with the first generation of the ZF automatic gearbox that came about due to customer feedback of the single clutch sequential automatic, found in previous models. It comes with the sunroof and interior phone option. It rides on a set of 19-inch silver alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tyres.
This car was originally delivered to Queensland before coming down to Melbourne. It has a full Maserati service history through the official dealer network, with the most recent maintenance work taking place in July 2021 by Maserati Melbourne. It is a three-owner example which has recently had the leather upholstery reconditioned.
The exterior condition is described as very good, especially for its age. As seen in photos, the Bordeaux Pontevecchio paintwork glistens beautifully in the sun and shows very few signs of paint damage. Some minor swirl marks can be seen on some body panels, though a minor detail should see this car looking immaculate. Other stone chipping is evident on the front bar and is commensurate with the amount of use this car has seen. There is no noticeable damage or dents to the bodywork, though some minor curb rash can be seen on three of the four wheels. The Pirelli P Zero tyres look to be near new, retaining a deep tread level.
Interior-wise, this Quattroporte presents in fine order. Having been redone in recent years, the Cream leather seats with black piping are clean and show next to no signs of creasing or sagging. The black leather of the dash and steering wheel show minimal use, while no scratching is found on the woodgrain inserts. Like many Italian exotics, this car did have a sticky plastics issue which was rectified not too long ago. The navigation system install disc is not supplied with this car.
