Novitec Tridente upgrades the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte

Article by Christian A., on September 3, 2014

Maserati Quattroporte is already a powerful sedan but Novitec Tridente decided to make it even more powerful and faster. As a result, the Italian tuning company released three upgrades for each model of the Quattroporte. The least powerful models of the Quattroporte are those using the 3.0-liter diesel engine but things will change as Novitec Tridente tuned from 275 hp and 600 Nm of torque to an impressive 322 hp and 680 Nm of torque.

With these numbers, the sedan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.7 seconds. Also the detuned version of the 3.0-liter diesel engine that delivers 250 hp and 600 Nm as standard, was upgraded to 301 hp and 680 Nm. This model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.2 seconds.

The 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine found on the Maserati Quattroporte S was boosted from 410 hp and 550 Nm of torque to 476 hp and 640 Nm of torque. The upgraded engine pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds.

The most powerful model, the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte V8 uses a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that generates as standard 530 hp and 710 Nm of torque.

Thanks to Novitec, the engine delivers 605 hp and 820 Nm of torque, which enables the Quattroporte V8 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds.

Novitec Tridente also offers new carbon fiber parts for the stylish Italian sedan such as a new front lip spoiler, side sills, a rear trunk lip, as well as a new suspension kit and new wheels.

Many have considered Maserati as the master among sports saloon designer from the moment the original Quattroporte of 1963 became the first vehicle to integrate speed and luxury within four doors.

A forceful engine and a roomy cabin are at the centre of the Maserati Quattroporte design, emphasised by a lengthy, imposing nose sporting a shortened overhang.

Marco Tencone, the head of Maserati Centro Stile, explains that the Quattroporte’s design draws its inspiration from Maserati's central style principles: proportional harmony, vivid lines, and Italian sophistication.

Each new model brings the future a step closer, but for a brand with such a strong tradition like Maserati, it is essential to rely on the most distinct features as signatures: the shape of the air inlets in front, the three small vents on the wings at the front, and the strong triangle C-pillar emblazing the logo.

The design maintains simplicity and clarity with a character outline continuing along the side to delineate the rear wing’s strong volume and produce an extremely strong appearance. The cabin is smooth, with a three-window treatment, and frameless doors.

The Quattroporte is a high-performance sports saloon that features an airy, sensual style embodying each of the most well-known Maserati design touches in a modern fashion.
