Maserati Quattroporte at Tokyo

Maserati Quattroporte at Tokyo

Makuhari Messe, Japan

Besides the all-new six-speed transmission offered in the company's four-door (Quattroporte --- Four-doors, get it?), Maserati buyers also have another new choice --- The "Quattroporte Sport GT Duo Select" transmission, allowing shifting of the automatic similar to a stick, if the driver so desires. And at these prices, the car had better deliver on every desire of the driver, and surirpse him or her with even more. The Maserati Trident, found on the front grill of today's cars, is a stylized version of the trident found on the massive fountain/statue of Neptune by Flemish sculptor Giovanni Da Bologna. The statue is a well know symbol of Bologna, the city where the Maserati brothers founded their eponymous company, and the Maserati brother that designed the logo sought to honor the city (and help themselves) by using a famous and popular Icon of Bologna.
