Maserati Quattroporte Tuned By Novitec
If there’s one sedan that you shouldn’t mess around with its appearance, that’s the Maserati Quattroporte and thank God, Novitec limited its actions to the 20-inch multi-spoke rims in 245/35 Pirelli P-Zero rubber up front and 285/30 at the rear axle along with the stainless steel 2x83mm outlets of the exhaust pipe left and right.
As with the Quattroporte's exterior appearance, Novitec was also quite reluctant when it came to the engine bay. Along with the new exhaust system the German tuner optimized the 4.2-liter V8’s ECU and raised cut-off speed to 7.800 rpm slighlty lifting power from 400Hp @ 7.000 rpm to 413Hp @ 7.100 rpm and maximum torque from 451Nm @ 4.500 rpm to 468Nm @ 4.650 rpm. Finally the Italian car tuner upgraded the Maserati’s suspension that includes dual adjustable stainless steel shock absorbers. While Novitec didn’t release any performance figures for the “lightly” tuned Quattroporte, they did however include several pictures of the car which you can check out after the jump below.
