Maserati Quattroporte 4.7 V8 Sport GTS review. Best sounding 4-door ever?

  • Published on Nov 14, 2019
  • The 2012 Maserati Quattroporte Sport GTS was the final and best version of the 5th edition Quattroporte. Powered by a 450bhp NA 4.7litre V8 built by Ferrari, it sounded like no other 4-door saloon and could well be the sounding 4-door of all time.
    Thanks again to The Hairpin Company was allowing me to drive this amazing example they currently have for sale.

    Respect for the Quattroporte should also hear the exhaust of a Jaguar XFRS!! Its insane!!!

    Looks more comfortable and refined for smoothness over an M5. That engine and elegance of its exhaust 🤤. These cars will come back into value for their engines alone. Worst fashions have come back.

    They are the ultimate baddies car, decedent in all the best ways. The best vehicle for any Italian politician to travel from their corruption trial to the bunga bunga party.

    Harry please review the Maserati 4200/Gransport! Preferably with a formula dynamics DBW unit. One of the last Maserati sports cars. Really curious to hear your thoughts.

    Best sounding 4 door for me has to be the E60 M5.. That V10

    Definitely the prettiest limousine of the last 40 years. The interior was a bit shitty I think, especially on the earlier models. But on the outside: WHAT A CAR!

    I've always had a soft spot for Maserati... I know they have been the underdog of the supercar scene... Maybe roughly so... I'd definetly buy one of these if I had the $

    You made me think can Maserati build that generation Quattroporte and leave it as it is engine sound and body but add an all wheel drive system. Refresh the headlights with newer technology. You’re right the new one sounds and looks nothing like the older one.

    contrary to common myth, these cars are quite reliable. the electronic handbreak needs adjusting every now and then, but that's it. I bouth a used one with 50k miles and clocked another 60k without ANYTHING whatsoever. servicing, oil change, that's it. the only real issue: a very small booth. travelling with four adults and luggage is almost impossible.

    It’s like the VXR8, a very niche choice in the market of big V8 saloons, but one I’d choose over any of the German rivals.

    Fell in love with this car when it first came out and still love the look. Terrified by tales of woeful reliability which I hope someone can refute.
    The new generation models appear soulless to me without Montezemolo. Won’t touch them particularly since they left the Ferrari nest.

    I own a 2010 sport GTS and I’m so glad Harry redeemed it after Doug DeMuro trashed an early model QP. Love the car’s character!

    So funny that you mentioned it as a "executive Express", because there's this entrepreneur from my neighborhood who drives one and really takes the express part literally with his Quattroporte

    I find the least attractive cars generally to be the American cars(over the past 45 years). I see beauty in vintage cars as well as in cars from 2019. I look for the details in panel uniformity ect. and they tell me all I need to know. My personal favorites are German and Italian cars although some Jaguar and Volvo also look fantastic. Although I'm biased a bit, I'm an American, just not patriotic enough to lie about the realities in the automotive industry, lol
