Modena, Italy – Federico Landini, Maserati Quattroporte launch manager talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, www.drivingthenation.com, about the first 50 years of the 4-door Maserati Quattroporte.

In 1963 there was one car and one engine, today there is one car, two engines and two driveshafts and the first all-wheel drive in the history of Maserati. Maserati’s all-wheel drive is affectionately called Q4. The newly released Ghibli will have the same V-6 engine and Q4.

Landini goes through the reasons why the Quattroporte is better today, including the fact that it is the most powerful Maserati ever.

Will Maserati bring out a hybrid or plug-in hybrid anytime soon?
