2009 Maserati Quattroporte on sale in Dubai
While we get no official love from Maserati’s GCC reps in terms of test cars, we can report that the facelifted 2009 Maserati Quattroporte is now on sale at dealerships in Dubai and the UAE, as newspaper ads for the car appear on a regular basis. The current range includes the standard Quattroporte as well as the Quattroporte S, while a new Quattroporte Sport GT S will debut at the upcoming 2009 Detroit Auto Show and soon join the GCC line-up next year.
The facelift for 2009 includes a nose that is slightly longer, and incorporates a new grille as well as a reshaped bumper. The base Quattroporte comes with the existing 400 hp 4.2-litre V8, while the chrome-grilled Quattroporte S comes with a 430 hp 4.7-litre V8. Both come with a 6-speed automatic now, dumping last year’s problematic automanual. Other features include new HID headlights with LED lighting, new tail lamps, various new leather and wood choices, new instrument cluster, reshaped seats, new multi-function steering wheel, and a new Bose multimedia system with navigation.
The upcoming new Quattroporte Sport GT S is being launched on the anniversary of their first long-forgotten Indianapolis 500 race win 70 years ago. To celebrate this non-significant event, the Sport GT S gets a recalibrated 433 hp 4.7-litre V8, thanks to ECU tuning and a noisier exhaust system that adds a massive 3 hp over the standard S. The automatic gets revised shift points, while the suspension gets stiffer spring rates and the shocks are now fixed instead of variable, both contributing to a lower ride height. The cabin boasts new ‘M-design’ seats with perforated alcantara and leather upholstery, while the standard trim in Titantex, a “titanium coloured” composite material.
Prices are high for the Italian luxury-sport sedan, starting at more than Dhs 550,000 in Dubai, and should touch Dhs 700,000 at the top end once the Sport GT S debuts.
what a beautiful, beautiful machine
lost for words… 😯 its a beauty!
very beautiful no words to describe
bmw m5 better
M5 is faster, but nowhere near as good
yeah, Maserati are gr8 with design but I feel MC12 could have been better.
ITS NICE AND GOOD LOOKING I THIKN THEY SHOULD GIVE ONE TO MASH BROTHER TO TEST IT.
DEAR MASH BROTHER I HAVE HEARED THAT PRICES OF VEHICLES IN MIDDLE EAST WILL COME DOWN IN FEB 2009 MANY PEOPLE ARE SAYING UPTO NOW I HAVE NOT BOUGHT MY CAR BECAUSE IF THE PRICES ARE COMING DOWN. DO YOU HAVE ANY NEWS MASH BRO THAT PRICES WILL COME DOWN IF YES THEN PLEASE DO LET ME KNOW?
Mashfique Hussain Chowdhury
There is no set date for prices to come down. The dealers will reduce once they become desperate. The Lancer Evo X now costs 10k less, while the BMW 5-Series is now 50k less in some UAE showrooms.
Thank you Brother Mashfique Drive Arabia is my family :smile:.
hey mash plz tell me if the price of M3 has decreased ?
Or the Cls 63 AMG
I know that in Abu Dhabi the BMW didnt lower there price as well as Premier motors.
As far as the Evo X I asked just couple of days ago it was 176K full option and starts at 167K.
The Japanese lowered abit. But that is due to the artificially creating demand by some dealers to increase the price of the cars
how is the black one different from the grey one in picture? black looks different and better 😀
Mashfique Hussain Chowdhury
The photos are labelled. The black one is the Sport GT S model.
The value for the money is poor. Lexus LS460 or higher than that a BMW 750 is a hell lot better than this Maserrati… I think the only reason for paying for this beauty is having a car with unique looks
I think you can’t compare mass produced lexus, bmw, merc prices to the price of this beauty. Certainly there is a price for exclusivity. The QP is still a head turner, although its been around for a few years. Anybody know the price of the QPS?
You’re so right. I my self would never trade such a car as this QP with any other in this range of price and Class if I can support it well. ‘Cause the servicing prices of this car are a killer!! Even for some one with 500K Dhs in his pocket to bye such a beauty. I think this car is made for car fanatics like us which don’t pay attention to such economic matters.
if you want to sale iam a buyer
