Quattroporte S - Technology
Power always at hand
The Twin Turbo V6 is both sporty and versatile
The 3-litre Twin Turbo V6 fitted to the Quattroporte S* has the Quattroporte GTS V8’s sporty edge; the two units also share most of their components. The bore spec and combustion chamber design are unchanged, as is the technology that controls the valves and direct injection. These refined solutions allow the V6 to develop 301kW (410 HP) at 5500 rpm.
Amazing torque provides exciting acceleration
The versatile V6 unit that equips the Quattroporte S* thrills whenever the driver steps on the accelerator, with the power coming through loud and clear. In Sport mode, peak torque is 550 Nm and is reached at just 1750 rpm. These extraordinary figures see the Quattroporte S* sprint to 100 km/h (0-62 mph), from a standing start, in only 5.1 seconds (4.9 on the Q4 version). It boasts a top speed of 285 km/h (177mph) (283km/h / 175mph for the Q4).
LIGHTER, MORE EFFICIENT GEAR CHANGES
The Quattroporte S* makes the most of its modern, automatic, 8-speed ZF transmission. Light and precise gear shifts are delivered by the auto-adaptive software that recognises the driver’s style and tweaks the type of shift accordingly. There are five modes to choose from and these can be selected by pushing the tunnel-mounted buttons: Auto Normal, Auto Sport, Manual Normal, Manual Sport and the all-new I.C.E.
The Brembo brakes on the Quattroporte S* were created to optimise weight and guarantee high performance under intensive use. A six-piston monoblock is mounted up front and acts on 360 x 32 mm discs, with four-piston units and 350 x 28 mm discs at the rear. The forged and ventilated discs boast dual-cast technology that unites the benefits of cast iron with lightweight aluminium.
