Re: Maserati Quattroporte

Sub Zero for me.

The only bit I don't like are the Rear lights which look like they came from a Rover 400.

Other than that it's perfect for a 4 door saloon.

Re: Maserati Quattroporte

Very uncool but not not seriously, although it does almost make it. Too big, too ugly, too silly. Why would you want a car with near super performance that big? I bet it handles like the wife's Nissan.

Re: Maserati Quattroporte

Definitely sub-zero. Granted it is for a niche market but that is the way it should be... you can't please everyone all the time, not least of which because there are many idiots.

Re: Maserati Quattroporte

Big, fast, luxurious, cool, ticks all the boxes.

Looks a bit like a wide-mouth frog, nose is too thin, body's too fat, it's a bit old-man'ish for 28 year old me but it's cool. Very cool.

Thats like saying if you want a four door car why have an Alfa Romeo?

If you want a big car, why not want supercar performance?

Fabulous car. Uber cool.

Re: Maserati Quattroporte

It is tough making a cool luxo-barge but the Maser is sub-zero and aces it.

Take your pick...
Maybach (mega mega expensive) - no way!
Roller - are you for real?
S- Class - glorified taxi for superannuated employees.
7-series - you have money but no taste or a very cheap used car, sir.
Bentley - monied chav or footballer.
Maser - oh yes! and probably at the lower price point as well as being the most stylish.

Re: Maserati Quattroporte

A couple of years ago there was a black one parked across 2 bays at Stansted Services.

I was with a mate. The route back to the van included a lap on foot around it.

Tail lamps? 3200GT LED boomerangs rock!

No Flappy paddles please.

The coolest 4 door in the world but those back lights would get changed if it was mine. But still sub-zero.
