Maserati Quattroporte GranSport Shows Its Aggressive Side In LA

Maserati took the wraps off the facelifted Quattroporte at the Paris Motor Show this past September, launching with it two packages that take the big, luxurious performance sedan in two different stylistic directions: GranSport and GranLusso. Now the Modenese automaker has brought the former to the US for the first time to debut on the floor of the LA Auto Show.

Where the the GranLusso takes a more elegant approach, as you might have guessed, the GranSport version is more aggressive, both inside and out.

It features sportier-looking bumper vents front and rear, black rear spoiler, 20-inch alloys, red brake calipers, and blue emblems. The interior also boasts more heavily bolstered sports seats, a sportier steering wheel, aluminum shift paddles, stainless steel pedals... the works.

These features in addition to the upgrades fitted across the Quattroporte range. After three years on the market, the enhanced sedan features adaptive front aero, sharpened bodywork, upgraded infotainment, and additional safety systems.

Buyers will be able to specify the GranSport or GranLusso on the base Quattroporte S, starting at $103,400 with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 rated at 404 horsepower; on the all-wheel-drive Quattroporte S Q4 (from $109,500); or the top-of-the-line Quattroporte GTS with its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 good for 523 hp, priced from $145,500.

Though billed as the highlight, the Quattroporte GranSport was only one of the models that Maserati brought from Modena to LA. It featured alongside the smaller Ghibli, the two-door GranTurismo, and the new Levante crossover.
