Melbourne show: Maser GT sedan gets S treatment

Auto-only: Firmer-handling Sport GT S is not available with Duo Select.

Maserati puts a $300K-plus price on its Quattroporte Sport GT S in Melbourne

3 Mar 2008

THE Quattroporte Sport GT S was presented for the first time in Australia at the Melbourne International Motor Show on Friday (February 29).

A harder-edged version of the luxury Sport GT, the GT S costs $308,000 and runs the same Ferrari-derived V8 engine as other Quattroportes, but offers handling and styling upgrades.

The GT S uses stiffer springs and dampers and sits 10mm lower at the front and 25mm lower at the rear.

Maserati claims the changes have produced a noticeable reduction in the roll and pitch angles. Its anchors have also been upgraded with a special Brembo set-up that uses composite dual-cast discs.

The Sport GT S is the first road car to run the new system, which also features mono-bloc six-piston front callipers.

While other Quattroportes are available with either a six-speed automatic (ZF) or the Duo Select sequential manual, the GT S is only available with the six-speed auto.

Visual upgrades include 20-inch wheels, a black-and-chrome mesh grille and black twin exhaust pipes.
