Maserati Quattroporte by CDC Performance

One of the most powerful and elegant saloons in the world is the fabled Maserati Quattroporte. It’s one of those cars that don’t need any more make-up or further upgrades, a stock Quattroporte being able to satisfy your need for luxury, comfort and speed easily. There is, though, a tuner that embarked upon this monster of a challenge to modify this supercar– they’re the German-based CDC Performance, and here’s what they’ve got for us.

CDC prepared a pretty remarkable upgrade package for the Maserati Quattroporte – it contains side skirts, a new rear bumper with integrated diffuser, new boot lid, spoiler, side mirror casings and a front spoiler lip. They’re all, of course, made of carbon fiber. Furthermore, they’ve equipped the Maserati with darkened headlights and taillights, plus LED DRLs.

The interior of the vehicle has suffered a few changes as well, now featuring black leather upholstery with contrasting red stitching, plus additional carbon fiber trims.

They’ve focused on the performance as well, having introduced quite an interesting power kit – the Quattroporte now delivers 580 PS and 570 Nm of peak torque, accelerating from naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) in around 4.6 seconds. It can reportedly reach a maximum speed of 300 km/h, quite a lot for such a large saloon.

In addition, CDC Performance have fitted it with a twin-compressor system with intercooling, stainless steel coilover suspension and a state of the art exhaust system with a driver-controllable valve.

Suffice to say, a set of 22-inch alloys hold this car’s weight, along with a new, more efficient braking system, consisting of 4-piston calipers with 380×34 mm 2-piece brake discs at the rear and 12 piston calipers with 405×36 mm 2-piece brake discs at the front.

Although we’ve absolutely no idea about the price of the package or its availability, we dare say CDC Performance have done a fine job.
