Maserati Quattroporte Engines Detailed
As we have previously stated, it will get its power from a selection of V6 and V8 engines, which feature an aluminium block, as well as direct fuel injection. The first engine is a 3-liter V6 unit, which is turbocharged and produces 410 PS / 404 hp, which is just a tad more than the old 4.7-liter unit used to make. It can push the new Quattroporte from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) five seconds dead, before topping out at 285 km/h (177 mph).
If the optional all-wheel drive system is fitted, acceleration is one tenth quicker, while top speed is 1 km/h lower. Next up is the V8 engine, which displaces just 3.8 liters, yet its twin-turbo system helps it achieve a power figure of 530 PS / 523 hp. This means that it can crack 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, and it will top out at 307 km/h (191 mph). Both engines are mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission.
Apparently, the V6 diesel powerplant which will definitely make it under the bonnet of the Quattroporte was not mentioned in the information provided by autoedizione.com. We will let you know as soon as we learn more on the matter.
