Limited edition Quattroporte to be launched at Geneva motor show
2 March 2010

This is the Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S Awards Edition, a special edition of the car.

The car, created to celebrate the awards presented to Maserati for the car is largely based on the Standard GT S, but has a new type of polished brake calliper created by Brembo. Although brake performance is unchanged, the calliper has a mirrored look.

The exterior is differentiated from standard by a new pearlescent metallic grey body colour, chrome detailing and 20-inch alloys.

Inside, it gets leather seats, black satin wood mouldings and brushed aluminium detailing.

The Quattroporte Sport GT S Awards Edition will be available in the UK as a special order in the second half of 2010. Prices will only be revealed when a customer asks to buy one.

At the car's launch Harold Wester, Maserati CEO, also stressed Maserati's enduring appeal, saying that it had increased its market share in almost every region despite recession. He also announced profits of 11 million euros (£10m) for the previous financial year.

Our Verdict

Maserati Quattroporte 2004-2013

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

Rewards, is it available on clubcard points.

U.A.E. aimed I think...

One of my all time favourite cars, it's gorgeous to look at and gets reasonable reviews in most motoring mags.

Beautiful to look at, but sadly not terribly good. Certainly not as effective as a Panamera. And yes, I've driven both - extensively.

I don't know what youre talking about! The Quattroporte is an excellent, awesome, stupendous car! About the Panamera, well that's just come out, the quattroporte is already a 7 year old model launched back in 2003. We'll see the real comparison test with the upcoming Quattroporte successor! In any case the Maserati looks 20 times better than Panamera! Also in real life the Maserati is more than good enough for most buyers!

So let me get this right? This is a special edition of a very premium car? And AutoCar, or Maserati are shouting about the fact that this special edition comes with leather seats...does the standard car not?

Hold on I've got a picture me driving one........

[quote thefonz7]I don't know what youre talking about! The Quattroporte is an excellent, awesome, stupendous car![/quote] It's nervous on the motorway, noisy and has a fidgety ride. What's more, some of the trim is decidedly low rent. [quote thefonz7]Also in real life the Maserati is more than good enough for most buyers![/quote] Is that really a cogent argument? It's like saying "what's wrong with murder. Dozens of people committed it last year..."

  • Citroën C3 Aircross

    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
