Suspensions: double wishbone and Skyhook
Double wishbone suspension layouts are a race-bred tradition at Maserati. The Quattroporte also features Skyhook suspension, with shock absorbers delivering continuous damping variation. The system uses sensors that monitor the movement of each wheel and the car’s body to determine the road conditions and how the car is being driven. It then instantly adjusts the settings of each damper accordingly.
Electric Power Steering
The system adapts the steering weight according to speed, being lighter and easy to turn when manoeuvring in a tight spot, for instance. Conversely it has a weightier, more connected feel at high speeds. All Quattroporte versions feature EPS as standard.
All versions of the Maserati Quattroporte feature powerful Brembo brakes carefully matched to engine performance. The discs are dual-cast, combining the strength of cast iron with the lightness of aluminium to reduce unsprung mass and, therefore, increase handling prowess.
