The Quattroporte has long epitomised the concept of “Sport Luxury Saloon”, a trend only now being followed by rivals such as Porsche, Aston Martin and now Lamborghini.
The Paris line-up mirrors the brands presence for Sydney, with both the standard 4.2-litre and S 4.7-litre variants on display.
Both models are equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission developed in partnership with ZF.
Following the GranTurismo, the Quattroporte features a new grille with vertical slats while the front and rear light clusters now incorporate LED technology.
The local debut of the GranTurismo S within the next week will also be an Australian first with the new model boasting a 323kW V8 4.7-litre engine capable of 7100 rpm.
The sprint from zero to 100km/h takes just 4.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 295km/h.
With a more than six decade connection to the Pininfarina brand, Maserati will also honour the legend of Andrea Pininfarina who passed away earlier this year.
