Maserati Quattroporte (1963 – 1971) Review

Maserati Quattroporte (1963 – 1971) At A Glance


+Fast four-door, with few rivals in its day, V8 engine is a gem

-Frua styling is less than happy

The Tipo 107 Maserati Quattroporte was significant because it was the first of its cars to be powered by the new 'Indy' V8 engine - initially in 4.1-litre form (later 4.7). The family resemblance with the Mistral was strong, as it was also a Frua design; while underneath it was built on a sports car-like tubular frame.  

The 1963 'Tipo 107' Quattroporte was capable of more than 130mph, which made it rare four a four-seater - the Facel Vega Excellence and Lagonda Rapide being its principal rivals. And nothing from Italy - significantly. Iw as available with either a five-speed ZF manual transmission or a three-speed automatic, and set a marker for many supercar manufacturers to try and emulate.
