2010 Maserati Quattroporte by Novitec Tridente

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Maserati has plans to give the next generation of the Quattroporte a boost in performance as the current version hasn't been able to manage a top spot in its class.

The existing version has an Italian design that's very enticing but its 4.7 liter naturally aspirated V8 unit delivering 430 hp and 490 Nm of torque couldn't keep up with German rivals coming from M, AMG and Quattro. Maserati plans for its next generation Quattroporte, which is set to arrive in 2014, to offer a lightweight construction and all-wheel-drive.

On the other hand, impatient customers might want to take a look at what Novitec's Maserati dedicated arm, Novitec Tridente, is offering. The tuner gives the current version a complete modification package.

The vehicle's V8 powerplant now features a cogged-belt-driven supercharger (maximum boost pressure of 0.35 bar), a water-to-air intercooler, a custom intake manifold and larger injectors, as well as an ECU remap.

The tweaks have boosted the unit's output to 590 hp and 572 Nm of torque. The car is able to accelerate from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.6 seconds and hit 124 mph (200 kmh) in 14.9 seconds, while boasting a top speed of 183 mph (295 km/h).

To handle this much power, the vehicle is equipped with a height-adjustable coilover suspension and custom tree-piece 21 inch alloy rims that have 255/30 tires for the rear axle and 295/30 for the rear one.

The elegant yet sporty look of the NOVITEC TRIDENTE is complemented by its new wheels. Giving this upgraded luxury sedan that additional sporty highlight is its understated rear spoiler that was created using clear-coated carbon fiber.

It uses high-performance 21-inch tires and the sport suspension has been calibrated especially for this. It also gives the Quattroporte owners the opportunity to request for a set-up that will meet their personal preferences.

The suspension does not only feature multiple settings related to compression and rebound but its height can also be adjusted anytime.

Customization is also offered for the NOVITEC TRIDENTE’s interior. These include having the interior custom-tailored and fashioned with Alcantara to having an advanced multimedia package that has a Blu-Ray player, TV, and high-speed internet connection.

NOVITEC TRIDENTE Tunes the Maserati Quattroporte

Superior performance through NOVITEC TRIDENTE Compressor Technology: With a rated power output of 590 hp / 434 kW and a peak torque of 572 Nm NOVITEC TRIDENTE establishes the two Maserati models Quattroporte S and Sport GT S among the most powerful luxury sedans in the world. Additionally the tuner enhances the cars' appearance and driving dynamics with three-piece 21-inch wheels, a height-adjustable coil-over suspension and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler. Exclusive interior upgrades are yet another NOVITEC TRIDENTE specialty.

Superlative driving thanks to superior engine power combined with exceptional engine smoothness: That is the philosophy behind the new NOVITEC TRIDENTE SPORT compressor engine for the Maserati luxury sedans Quattroporte S and Quattroporte Sport GT S.

The specialists of the German company adapted a cogged-belt-driven mechanical charger to the 4.7-liter eight-cylinder four-valve engine. Maximum boost pressure is limited to 0.35 bar. A water-to-air intercooler with dedicated water circulation ensures healthy operating temperatures for the engine. The NOVITEC TRIDENTE SPORT compressor conversion is rounded out by a custom intake manifold and larger injectors. Newly calibrated engine electronics ensure optimal power yield, longevity and compliance with strict Euro IV emission limits.

After the engine conversion, which starts at 19,900 Euros, the Italian luxury sedan delivers high-end performance figures: Rated power output of the Quattroporte S jumps from standard 430 hp / 318 kW to 590 hp / 434 kW at 7,300 rpm. Simultaneously peak torque grows from 490 Nm to 572 Nm.

In combination with the six-speed automatic transmission the NOVITEC TRIDENTE luxury sedan delivers excellent driving performance as well: A sprint time of just 4.6 seconds from rest to 100 km/h and 14.9 seconds to 200 km/h are truly exceptional in this class. Just as impressive is the car's new top speed of 295 km/h.

To transfer this tremendous performance potential to the road as safely as possible NOVITEC TRIDENTE have developed a custom-tailored tire/wheel combination for the Quattroporte. The three-piece alloy wheels with five double spokes perfectly fill out the available space in the wheel wells. The size 9Jx21 wheels on the front axle are mounted with Pirelli P Zero high-performance tires in size 255/30 ZR 21. In the rear size 295/30 ZR 21 tires on size 11Jx21 wheels provide optimal traction.

The new wheels play a large part in the sporty yet elegant appearance of the upgraded luxury sedan. For added sporty emphasis NOVITEC TRIDENTE offers an understated rear spoiler made from clear-coated carbon fiber.

The NOVITEC TRIDENTE sport suspension is specifically calibrated to the 21-inch high-performance tires. It allows owners of the Quattroporte to dial-in a setup that suits their individual preferences. The suspension is continuously height-adjustable and features multiple settings for compression and rebound.

NOVITEC TRIDENTE also offers numerous options for a stylish customization of the interior of the luxury sedan. The options range from a custom-tailored interior crafted from the finest leather or Alcantara to a state-of-the-art multimedia equipment package with TV, Blu-Ray player and high-speed internet connection on wheels.
