When Maserati announced it would debut another special edition model at the Geneva Auto Show we hardly even managed enough excitement to yawn. The new Quattroporte Sport GT S “Awards Edition,” is, however, worthy of a very intense look.
Sure its just another of probably a half-dozen limited edition QPs, but in person is a prime example of fine Italian coachwork. The Quarzo Fuso paint scheme is stunningly elegant, as is the car’s interior, with special Poltrona Frau leather seats, piano black wood trim and plenty Alcantara – including for the headliner. Other additions to this special edition include deep black 20-inch Multi Trident wheels and polished brake calipers.
Under the hood, the very excellent 430-hp, 4.7-liter V8 remains untouched.
As for the story behind the “Awards Edition,” Maserati has built the car to celebrate the 56 awards it has received since its inception. No doubt, this also signals the near end of the original QP as Maserati readies a second generation platform.
