The new Quattroporte Sport GT S will be launched in a world premiere at the Frankfurt Motorshow.

Modena - 28 August 2007 - The car is the ultimate sporting expression of Maserati's flagship model.

Developed for those looking for an even sportier ride from a luxury berlina, the Quattroporte Sport GT S, equipped with an automatic 6-speed gearbox, stands out for its exceptional dynamic response and precise handling.

This result was obtained with the introduction of a single-calibration suspension system and a racing set up. The ride was stiffened by fitting new springs and dampers and by lowering the front end by 10mm and the rear by 25mm.

The Quattroporte Sport GT S boasts a unique braking system developed in collaboration with Brembo. This innovative technology uses composite cross-drilled discs, the first time such a set up has been employed on a road car.

Unlike traditional cast iron discs, composite cross-drilled discs are constructed from two materials, cast iron and aluminium. This optimises braking, improving performance in the most extreme conditions and providing greater resistance to fade even at the highest temperatures. The braking system on the Quattroporte Sport GT S employs new single-piece, six-piston calipers in the front and has tyres developed especially for this car (front 245/35-R20 and rear 295/30-R20). These larger tyres provide improved traction while the new tyre compound works with the brakes and suspension set-up to assure even better handling and a more involving drive.

Fast forward to 29 March 2008.

Just back from test driving the Maser GT and QP GTS.
Like the QP GTS non-skyhook sport suspension and stance and handling better.
Liked the GT overall driving experience better.
Maser GT-S is gonna be killer.

Since still kicking around a possible F550, sat in one on the floor. (Didn't drive it.) Car just didn't feel seven or eight years old - it felt last century.
