This time, we are very proud to offer this 2008 Maserati Quattroporte Executive GT Sedan. "Quattroporte" literally means four doors in Italian. The�Quattroporte Executive GT�was a comfort- and luxury-oriented specification; it came equipped with�wood-rimmed steering wheel, an�alcantara�suede interior roof lining, ventilated, adaptive, massaging�rear seats, rear�air conditioning�controls,�veneered�retractable�rear tables, and�curtain�shades on the rear windows. The exterior was distinguished by 19-inch eight-spoke ball-polished wheels and�chrome�mesh front and side grilles. Made in July 2007, this car was delivered to a couple in suburban St. Louis, Missouri on May 10, 2008. This example, finished in Grigio Touring, has very good paint, with just a few minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. The windows are in fine form, as are the vehicle's lights. The car rolls on 19-inch, eight-spoke, ball-polished wheels within 245/40ZR19 tires in front and 285/35R19 tires in back. The right rear wheel has a small spot of curb rash. The body panels are straight and the car's bumpers fit well with no major blemishes. Inside, black leather interior is in fantastic shape - seats, carpet, Alcantara-suede headliner, instrument panel, three-spoke steering wheel, door panels, package shelf, etc. There are front airbags for driver and passenger. The CD changer on underside of dash below steering wheel is inoperative but the car has a factory multi-media system accessible by the driver and all passengers, plus a separate rear console with vents and miscellaneous controls. The fifth generation of the Quattroporte (Tipo M139) was unveiled to the world at the�Frankfurt Motor Show�on September 9, 2003�and made its U.S. premi�re at the 2003�Pebble Beach Concours d'�l�gance; production started in 2004. Exterior and interior design was done by�Pininfarina. Built on an entirely new platform, it was 19.7�inches longer than its predecessor and sat on a 15.7-inch longer�wheelbase. Initially, it was powered by an evolution of the�naturally aspirated�dry sump�4.2-litre�V8 engine, mounted on the�Maserati Coup�, with an improved output of 400�horsepower. Due to its greater weight compared to the Coup� and Spyder, the 0-62�mph time for the Quattroporte was 5.2 seconds and the top speed 171�mph. More than 5,000 Quattroportes were built in 2006. The Maserati Quattroporte was initially offered in only one configuration, equipped with the DuoSelect transmission. The base�Quattroporte DuoSelect�was recognizable by its chromed grille with horizontal slats; adaptive Skyhook suspension and 330mm�brake disks�with four piston calipers all-around were standard. Maserati put emphasis on�personalization, offering customers a choice of 15 exterior paint colors,�Poltrona Frau�leather upholstery in 10 hues, contrasting seat piping and stitching and three types of wood inserts. At the�Frankfurt Motor Show�in September 2005, Maserati introduced the Executive GT model trim level. The Quattroporte body is a�steel�unibody, with�aluminum�boot lid�and�engine bonnet;�drag coefficient�is 0.35.�Front and rear aluminum�sub-frames�support the whole suspension and drivetrain. A 47/53 front/rear weight distribution�was achieved by setting the engine behind the front axle, inside the wheelbase (front-mid-engine layout) and the adoption of a�transaxle�layout. With the later automatic transmission - fitted in the conventional position in block with the engine - weight distribution changed to 49/51 front/rear. The suspension system consists of�unequal length control arms�with�forged�aluminum arms and hub carriers,�coil springs�and�anti-roll bars�on both axles. The six-speed�torque converter�automatic transmission was a�6HP26�supplied by�ZF Friedrichshafen. Unlike the DuoSelect it was placed in the conventional position right behind the engine; to accommodate it and the new rear differential the front and rear sub-frames as well as part of the�transmission tunnel�had to be redesigned. Manual shifting was possible by the centre-console mounted gear lever; in addition Sport GT cars came equipped with paddle shifters as standard, while on other models they were an optional extra. All Quattroporte models were fitted with a�limited-slip differential. The�V8 engines�of the fifth generation Quattroporte belonged to the "Ferrari-Maserati F136" family; they had�aluminum-silicon alloy�block�and�heads, a�cross-plane crankshaft, four�valves�per cylinder driven by two�overhead camshafts�per bank and continuous�variable valve timing�on the intake side.�F136S�4.2L engines in DuoSelect equipped cars used a�dry sump�lubrication system;�F136UC�4.2L engines on automatic cars were converted to use a�wet sump�oiling system. This particular example was recalled twice by Maserati to correct problems in the front and rear suspensions. Previous owners had the issues corrected. Documentation includes - owner's manual, multi-media system owner's manual, warranty card booklet, sales and service organization booklet, Blaupunkt Audio/Navigation System Passport and more. Competition to this Maserati in 2008 included Audi's A8L Quattro, BMW's 760Li, Jaguar's XJR, Lexus' LS460 and Infiniti's Q45. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
