When the hissing beast that is the Dodge Viper first launched back in the early ‘90s, I can remember feeling strangely disappointed by it. Not because a rear wheel-drive monster powered by a V10 truck engine bellowing through a set of side pipes is in any way boring. Because it isn’t. But I experienced a similar feeling last week when I sat inside the new Maserati Quattroporte diesel.
Details have been released of the new Maserati Quattroporte. Powered by either a 410hp 3.0-litre twin turbo V6 or 530hp 3.8-litre twin turbo V8, the new Quattroporte hits 62mph in 4.9 and 4.7 seconds respectively.
