Unveiled on the 70th anniversary of its first Indianapolis 500 win, the sportiest model of the new Quattroporte range yet released made its worldwide debut at the NAIAS in Detroit.

The show display focused on Maserati's unique racing DNA, which includes two 2008 International FIA GT titles - clinched by the Maserati MC12, and a special anniversary celebration of Maserati's first of two consecutive triumphs at Indy.

The new Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S sets yet another milestone in terms of sportiness in the high performance luxury sedan segment. Conceived and developed as "a real driving machine in the guise of a luxury sedan", the Quattroporte Sport GT S is claimed to be the ultimate expression of Maserati's sportiness in the Quattroporte range.

The technical changes to the new Quattroporte Sport GT S concern four areas: the mapping of the 4.7 liter V8 engine, with power increased to 433hp; the gearshift management software, with new features designed to increase driving enjoyment; suspension system featuring single-rate dampers, stiffer springs and lower ride height; and the sport exhaust controlled by pneumatic valves for a deep, throaty sound.

The sportier and more aggressive look is evident in the interior's and exterior's styling: the new black grille with concave vertical fins featuring the Trident logo with red accents, typical of the sportier versions of Maserati models; new headlights, in metallic titanium finish; new M-design seats with perforated Alcantara and leather upholstery; and the standard trim in Titantex, a "titanium coloured" composite material.
