The ultimate expression of Maserati’s sedan sportiness — that’s how the Italian car maker is describing the new Quattroporte Sport GT S. The car sits 0.4 inches lower at the front and 0.98 inches lower at the rear compared to the standard car, and also features stiffer springs and dampers.

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 fromGeneva to Frankfurt. And in the same time Maserati has sold out the entire 2007 production of the GranTurismo, the car it unveiled at the Swiss event back in March. The first vehicles were in the showrooms in July, but customers will now have to wait until next year if they’ve not ordered yet.
