Che Bella Macchina: A Brief History of the Maserati Quattroporte

A few days ago, Maserati revealed the sixth generation of its flagship saloon. Although it hasn’t disclosed all the details, we know that the all-new Quattroporte is bigger than its predecessor, more luxurious and loaded with the latest tech features and a V8 engineered by Ferrari that sends power to the rear wheels.
The Modena-based manufacturer knows very well that its latest model enters a class that’s getting pretty crowded. Back in the 1960s, when the first generation was launched, competition was minimal. Nowadays, no niche is taboo for anyone so Maserati has to compete with the likes of the Porsche Panamera and the Aston Martin Rapide.
Until we learn all there is to know about the new Quattroporte we can afford to take a short journey back in time to meet its ancestors.
