Maserati Quattroporte by CDC

Maserati did a very good job with the new Quattroporte, an elegant and comfortable 4-door saloon. It would be a vey bad idea painting it in bright red and adding carbon fiber everywhere around it. But tastes are not up for discussion. German tuning company CDC Performance came up with a new plan, a new tuning program for the Maserati Quattroporte that also includes a power kit.

The aftermarket engineers offered a 0.35 bar boost pressure and so the model is capable of developing 580 PS and 570 Nm of torque. With these output, the CDC Performance specialists said that the Quattroporte will be capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and to reach a top speed of 300 km/h, which is noting to be ashamed of. The German aftermarket specialists also offer a body kit that includes several elements like side skirts, a front spoiler, a boot lid and a new rear bumper with an integrated diffuser, side mirror casings and a spoiler. All the parts are made of carbon fiber. The new CDC Maserati Quattroporte will also feature headlights, taillights and LED DRLs. In terms of interior, the tuner provided black leather upholstery with red stitching, but also different carbon trim parts. For the increase in power of the CDC Maserati Quattroporte, CDC installed twin-compressor system with inter-cooling, a stainless steel coilover suspension and a bespoke exhaust system with a controlled valve for an improved soundtrack. To handle the extra power, the tuner also offers bigger brakes with 12-piston calipers with 405x36mm 2-piece brake discs on the front axle and 4-piston calipers with 380x34mm 2-piece brake discs for the rear one. All the output is being transferred to the road through 22-inch alloy wheels.

The price for the model equipped with the tuning lit developed by CDC Performance was not made public.
