Italian luxury and sports car manufacturer
Maserati has launched the 2018 Quattroporte GTS in India. The sedan was first
unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show and will now be available to the
Indian buyer for a whopping price of Rs. 2.7 crore (ex-showroom Delhi). The
Quattroporte GTS is considered to be one of the fastest offerings from the
Italian manufacturer and can achieve a top speed of 310kmph.
Powering the Quattroporte GTS is a 3.8
litre twin turbo V8 engine which produces 530hp from 6500-6800 rpm. The V8
engine belts out a beefy 710Nm of torque which propels the sedan from 0-100kmph
in just a mere 4.7 seconds. The engine in the GTS has been mated to an 8-speed
automatic transmission developed by ZF Transmissions. It is able to modify
shift patterns according to the drivers style of driving. Safety features on
the new Quattroporte GTS include stability program, adaptive full LED
headlamps, 6 airbags and active headrests.
The new 2018 Quattroporte GTS is available
in two different trims - GranLusso and GranSport. The GranLusso gets a discreet
front spoiler, chrome bumper inserts, body coloured side skirts and GranLusso
badging. The GranSport gets a dynamic style with subtly incorporated body
sculpted angles for the central front and side intakes, aerodynamic splitters
in the lower section. The centre spoiler and side intakes have been finished in
piano black. The GranSport package also gets the option of an exterior carbon
package. This includes carbon finishing on the ORVMs, door handles, B-Pillar
and profile of the front bumper.
Maserati is offering an 8.4' touch enabled
infotainment unit on the new 2018 Quattroporte GTS. The system known as
Maserati Touch Control Plus(MTC+) can be controlled using touch input, a rotary
control on the centre console and voice commands. The touch infotainment unit
comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also gets a wifi option. The
Italian manufacturer is offering the new 2018 Quattroporte GTS with two audio
systems - a powerful 900watt 10 speaker Harman Kardon system which comes fitted
as standard. Those who want even better acoustics can choose a 1280 watt, 15
speaker Bowers and Wilkins sound system. Maserati launched the Quattroporte GTS
globally in September 2017 but Indian consumers who buy this sedan will get
delivery at same time as any other consumer globally.
