Five big Ms on the way
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.
