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. première at the 2003 Pebble Beach Concours d'Élégance; 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 Coupé, with an improved output of 400 horsepower. Due to its greater weight compared to the Coupé 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!!!
