Read more

It seems that the Italians in the 1960s were simply not capable of producing an unattractive car. This 1968 Maserati Quattroporte with a quad-cam V8 displacing 4,136cc is yet another example of that brilliant design vibe that ultimately died out in the 1980s.

Ah, a lovers' quarrel: in real life, it's practically unavoidable, especially when a couple has deep feelings for each other, but it's always wise to keep things civilized. At least in theory, because not all situations play out the way we want or think they should.

Read more

Sound and Tire Burning Fun with a New Maserati Quattroporte GTS V8


Read more

Despite its name, heritage, origins, and of course, a Ferrari co-developed and force-fed 3.8-liter V8 lurking under its long hood feeding 523-horses (530PS / 390kW) the rear wheels, the new 2014 Maserati Quattroporte GTS saloon isn't a car you'd expect to be hooned around, even the slightest.

As far as fast and expensive estate cars are concerned, there are many which fit in the €80,000 to €120,000 price bracket, but most are German, all-wheel drive and usually a tad soulless, as fans of Italian car brands like to say.

If you are looking for a fancy estate with a lot of punch, costing about that much, then you are in luck, because something very Italian and exclusive has cropped up, and it’s set to go under the hammer on May 25.

Read more

The beginning of the week brings two separate and unrelated recall actions, the first from Alfa Romeo and Maserati, and the second from Subaru.

Maserati's North American division issued the recall for certain model year 2005-2008 Quattroporte, 2008 Granturismo, and 2008 Alfa Romeo 8C vehicles, because rear tie rod assemblies on these cars may have insufficient anti-corrosion material applied and could rust and weaken, leading to a possible fail.

This Is How You Kill a Maserati Quattroporte with Sledgehammers...


Read more

The following video will definitely trigger a deja-vu sequence among many of our readers; an expensive Italian luxury car destroyed with sledgehammers in China. Yep, we’ve seen that before.

The only thing different between the 2011 video and the new one added after the break is the car, as the Lamborghini Gallardo is now replaced by a Maserati Quattroporte. However, the reason for which the owner hired some...muscleto destroy the car is the same: poor servicing.

If Maserati Ghibli V6 Diesel Succeeds, Fiat Might Add V8 Diesel to the Range


Read more

A few years ago, one could still buy a V8 diesel-powered vehicle from pretty much, any of the German manufacturers (BMW used a boosted up V6 six-cylinder which did the same job - think 535d). Now, aside from the Porsche Cayenne S diesel, which has a long waiting list, there are no V8 diesels on the market to really speak of – they have all-but been wiped out and replaced with more V6s.

Maserati's First Ever Diesel Engine Co-Developed with Ferrari, Built in Maranello


Read more

As most of you already know, the recently unveiled 2014 Maserati Ghibli will be available with a diesel engine, the first such unit ever fitted to a car wearing the trident badge.

While the carmaker said the engine will be a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel, it didn't go into details, leaving room for speculation about the source of the powerplant. Fiat and Chrysler already have a 3.0-liter V6 turbodiesel engine supplied by VM Motori that equips the new Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Lancia Thema and may soon be fitted to the U.S.-market Chrysler 300 as well.
