The all-new 2013 Maserati Quattroporte S Q4
The 2013 Geneva International Motor Show sees the European premiere of the all-new Maserati Quattroporte S Q4.
The Maserati Quattroporte S Q4 is equipped with a V6 twin turbo charged engine, 410 horsepower and all-wheel drive system.
The V6 twin turbo engine can boast amazing performance, reaching 285km/h (177mph) top speed and accelerating from 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds.
With an eight-speed automatic transmission and both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive (Q4) configurations, the Q4 all-wheel drive configuration available with V6 engine only, it is also the most secure all-weather performance car in Maserati’s history.
The intelligent Q4 all-wheel-drive system has been engineered to be compact and lightweight. It has been studied and developed to guarantee the highest traction and torque as well as comfort in all conditions, with optimised consumption.
Q4 is an exclusive all-wheel-drive Maserati system; intelligent and active:
– Intelligent: the Q4 system is able to engage traction on the front wheels, that are otherwise passive, only when needed in order to lower consumption and enhance handling.
– Active: the Q4 system varies continuously, moment by moment, and processes a wide range of parameters to distribute torque to all four wheels as required.
