Five big Ms on the way

South Western Times - - Wheels - Ewan Kennedy

Maserati has taken ex­clu­siv­ity to a new level with the 2018 Maserati Qu­at­tro­porte GTS GranS­port Neris­simo Edi­tion. Only 50 are on sale worldwide – and just five are com­ing to Aus­tralia.

The rar­ity of the Neris­simo Edi­tion is cer­ti­fied by the plaque on the cen­tre con­sole that states “Neris­simo Edi­tion ‘xx’ of 50”.

The Maserati GranS­port fea­tures 21-inch glossy black Ti­tano wheels, front and rear sports bumpers; body-colour side skirts; an­odised red painted brake cal­lipers; and an ex­te­rior car­bon pack­age that ex­tends from the front split­ter, through the door mir­rors and door han­dles, B-pil­lar trim to the rear split­ter.

Nero Ri­belle paint com­bines with pi­ano-black fin­ish­ing on the front grille, in­serts on bumpers and rear ex­trac­tor to cre­ate a truly unique state­ment. Black is also used on the win­dow sur­rounds, ex­haust pipes and ver­ti­cal grille bars.

The in­te­rior of the hot Maser fea­tures 12-way power sport seats, full pre­mium black leather up­hol­stery with red stitch­ing as well as the red em­broi­dered tri­dent on the head­rests; gearshift pad­dles and door sills; a sport car­bon steer­ing wheel; car­bon trim and a head­liner in Al­can­tara.

The Maserati Qu­at­tro­porte GranS­port GTS Neris­simo Edi­tion is pow­ered by a 3.8-litre V8 en­gine that pro­duces 530 hp (390 kW) and 650 Nm of torque from 2000 rpm to 4000 rpm.

If you want to get re­ally se­ri­ous over­boost gives you 710 Nm from 2250 rpm to 3500 rpm to lift the Qu­at­tro­porte to 100km/h in just 4.7 sec­onds on its way to 310km/h.

Each Maserati Qu­at­tro­porte GranS­port GTS Neris­simo Edi­tion has a rec­om­mended re­tail price of $371,990. Sig­nif­i­cant statu­tory charges, dealer costs and de­liv­ery have to be added to this.

Black is the new black in this ul­tra-hot Maserati GTS GranS­port Neris­simo Edi­tion.
