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

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. There are many reasons for this, and we’re certain you can find more, but just to mention a few, it’s huge measuring 207.2 inches (5.263mm) long; it’s heavy at 1900kg or 4,189 lbs, and more importantly, it’s a luxury saloon that costs close to $150,000. Still, none of the above stopped these cheerful folks from having some controlled fun with the GTS version of the Quattroporte. And no, we don’t know if it was a private or a press car. Thanks to Felipe R. for the video tip!
