There’s also a unique braking system developed in collaboration with component firm Brembo. The innovative technology uses dual-cast brake discs, and marks the first time such a setup has been employed on a road car. Unlike traditional cast iron discs, dual-cast discs are made of both cast iron and aluminum. This boosts braking performance in extreme conditions and providing greater resistance to fade even at higher temperatures.
The other big difference on the Quattroporte Sport GT S is the look. The exterior is far more aggressive than its standard stablemate, with black-chrome mesh front grille. The quad exhaust pipes are also in black, and the whole package rides on dark-chrome 20-inch, seven-spoke alloys.
Inside, traditional Poltrona Frau leather has been combined with Alcantara, which covers the central zone of the seats, the interior door panels, and the steering wheel. Maserati has previously only used Alcantara for the interior of the Trofeo cars and the MC12. The seats have also been uprated to be more comfortable. Meanwhile, the dashboard is finished in carbon fiber with aluminum inserts.
Oh, and don't worry if you haven't made arrangements for your Maserati GranTurismo yet. It takes the global motor show circuit six months to travel from
