2008 Maserati Quattroporte Review

This review was written when the 2008 Maserati Quattroporte was new.

The Quattroporte ranks highly for its comfortable yet precise handling, as well as head-turning exterior design and luxurious four-passenger cabin. Still, auto writers criticize its limited cargo room and point out that some competitors are more powerful.

Auto writers agree that the 2008 Maserati Quattroporte is a rare delight, characterized by superior handling dynamics and exquisite design both inside and out. Car and Driver says: "The Maserati Quattroporte is rare, gorgeous, and exotic. It combines sex-on-wheels Italian looks, a sumptuous interior, a Ferrari-based engine, and balanced, responsive handling." Still, the Quattroporte isn't perfect. Reviewers point out that many of its competitors, including the Mercedes-Benz CLS55 and Audi S8, offer more powerful engine options.

The 2008 Quattroporte features a 400-horsepower V8 engine and is available in Executive GT and Sport GT trims.

  • "It's graced with a stunning exterior design with aggressive tumblehome, an interior that looks like an Italian designer named Antonio ordered a leather bomb to be exploded in each car before it left the factory, and a glorious Italian V-8 engine that all result in a character that other luxury cars can only dream of." -- Automobile Magazine
  • "It's still an enthusiast's car, yet those who just want a megawatt-styled lux sedan can now love it, too. A visit to the dentist and time in rehab made it the supermodel we all knew it could be, and it now deserves a top spot on your luxo four-door shopping list. Its rarity and exclusivity remain a bonus." -- Motor Trend
