Maserati launches an upgraded MC Sport Line variant of its Quattroporte sports saloon

Maserati has revealed this upgraded MC Sport Line version of its Quattroporte.

Based on the GT S model, MC Sport Line Quattroporte models gain extras developed by the firm’s Maserati Corse factory-owned racing department.

Most of the tweaks are made inside, where carbonfibre replaces the standard wood trim on the dashboard, front and rear centre consoles, sections of the door panels and the gear knob and switchgear sounds.

There is also carbonfibre added to surround the instrument panels and on the gearshift paddles. Other additions include door sills equipped with MC Sport Line-badged carbonfibre panels and an MC logo for the aluminium brake pedal.

Power doesn’t increase above the 433bhp produced by the standard car’s 4.7-litre V8, nor are there any major exterior changes. Maserati recently applied its MC badge to the lightweight MC Stadale variant of the Granturismo, revealed at last month's Paris motor show.Read more on the Maserati Granturismo MC Stradale, including Paris show pics

Our Verdict

Maserati Quattroporte 2004-2013
The fifth generation of Quattroporte gets a V8 engine and Pininfarina-penned body

The Maserati Quattroporte has character, balance and a wonderful engine, but its ride and gearbox mean it’s ultimately flawed.

I love Maserati's but isn't this the Maserati version of a Capri Laser? Is this really what Maserati should be about

how does a different trim option make it hotter

25 October 2010

A different trim makes the car hotter by reducing weight, in this case by at least half a pound!!


Must remember not to carry the extra mars bar with me when I drive it, or it will negate the very hard work done by the engineers!!

Call me fussy but if I were to spend £100k on a car, I'd prefer it to look more Harrods than Halfords inside.

No doubts that working from an Audi A8 base makes for a winner.
