With six generations of cars, this luxury saloon has straddled motoring history as the ideal interpretation of Maserati exclusivity
In 1963, the Turin Motor Show introduced the automotive world to the Maserati Quattroporte, a name that would go on to define luxury and innovation for six generations of motorists. Fast-forward to today, we as passionate car enthusiasts, are celebrating 60 successful years of a sedan as an embodiment of Maserati’s relentless pursuit of excellence. From its racing-derived 8-cylinder engine in the first-generation model to its status as a “living room on the move,” the Quattroporte has been many things to many people. Its perfect blend of luxury and performance has secured its place in automotive history, inspiring a whole new generation with its capacity for reinvention. We’re not just talking about a car; we’re talking about an evolving legend that has driven alongside kings, princes, and A-list celebrities. The Quattroporte was also a canvas for some of Italy’s greatest designers.
From Frua to Bertone and Pininfarina, each rendition carries an artistic signature, making each generation distinct yet rooted in Maserati’s rich heritage. With more than 75,000 models cruising the globe, it’s clear that this luxury sports sedan is thriving. Over the decades, various iterations have had their moments under the sun. The Quattroporte III emerged as a resounding success, and each subsequent version added another layer of elegance. Even after all the corporate shake-ups and restyling efforts, the Quattroporte has managed to retain its allure, earning its spot in over 60 film productions and the garages of the global elite. Today, as it marks its 60th anniversary, the Quattroporte stands as a symbol of the passion, skill, and vision of everyone who contributed to its legacy. It’s a milestone for Maserati and a true icon that continues to set the standard for luxury cars.
