FOOTNOTES

Styled by Frua and introduced in 1963, the V8-powered Quattroporte was a landmark model for Maserati, being the Modena firm's first four-door saloon and its first car of unitary construction. Styled by Frua and introduced at the 1963 Turin Show, the Quattroporte was powered by a downsized - to 4.2 litres - version of the 5000 GT's four-cam V8 and beneath the skin featured independent front suspension and a De Dion rear axle, though the latter was replaced by a conventional elliptically sprung live axle in 1967. Car & Driver recorded a 0-60mph (0-97km/h) time of 8.7 seconds and wound their Quattroporte up to 120mph (193km/h), estimating that there was another 10mph (16km/h) still to come, all of which was some going for a fully-equipped four-seater weighing close to 2 tons. 

One of the world's fastest luxury saloons of its day, this first-generation Quattroporte was delivered in 1967 to its first and only owner, a member of the legal profession, in the Italian capital, Rome. The Quattroporte joined his stable of a Maserati Ghibli and Rolls-Royce, and could often be seen on the Via Veneto. Offered with Italian registration papers, it is described as highly original, benefiting from a repaint in its original silver colour a few years ago, while the blue leather interior has aged very well and possesses a delightful patina. Rarely do these stylish sports saloons come to the market with such provenance.

Disegnata da Frua e introdotta nel 1963, la Quattroporte con motore V8 è stata un modello di riferimento per la Maserati, essendo la prima berlina a quattro porte della società modenese e la sua prima auto ad utilizzare la carrozzeria portante. Disegnata da Frua e introdotta al Salone di Torino del 1963, la Quattroporte era alimentata da una versione ridotta - a 4,2 litri - del V8 a quattro alberi a camme in testa della 5000 GT e, sotto la pelle, presentava sospensioni anteriori indipendenti e un assale posteriore De Dion, anche se quest'ultimo è stato sostituito da un più convenzionale assale rigido con balestre ellittiche nel 1967. Car & Driver ha registrato nello 0-100 km/h, un tempo di 8,7 secondi e ha spinto la Quattroporte fino ad una velocità massima di 193 km/h, stimando che ci fossero altri 16km/h disponibili. Tutto ciò, va ricordato, per una quattro posti ben equipaggiata e con un peso di quasi 2 tonnellate.

All'epoca una delle berline più lussuose al mondo, questa Quattroporte prima serie è stata consegnata nel 1967 al suo primo e ad oggi unico proprietario, un professionista in campo legale, di Roma. La Quattroporte, parte di una scuderia completata da una Maserati Ghibli e Rolls-Royce, poteva essere vista spesso in Via Veneto. Offerta con documenti di immatricolazione italiani, è descritta come "molto originale", ed alcuni anni fa ha beneficiato di una velatura nel suo colore argento originale, mentre l'interno in pelle blu originale è invecchiato molto bene e possiede una deliziosa patina. Raramente questi eleganti salotti sportivi arrivano sul mercato con una storia tale.

TESTIMONIALS

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
