In August 2020, Maserati presented its new Trofeo (Trophy) lineup for the Ghibli, the Quattroporte, and the Levante.
All three of them shared the same Ferrari twin-turbo V8 engine.
Maserati was in constant evolution in 2020, despite the hard times caused by the world pandemic situation. It launched new models, such as the MC20 supercar, and a more powerful version for its four-door models. The Quattroporte was their flagship, the car that was built for Italian CEOs. The Trofeo version was the fastest version of it.
From the outside, the Trofeo looked similar to the regular Quattroporte, but some details made a difference. At the front, the car featured a different bumper and apron design, with a wider center grille and modified side-scoops to cool the brakes. From the side, the front fenders featured three vents with red trims and the Trofeo badge. On the C-pillars, under the brand’s badge, a red stripe was installed.
Inside, the Trofeo was fitted with the best amenities available in the Maserati storage. The instrument cluster featured a TFT color display between the speedometer and the tachometer. The infotainment system was fitted with a big touch-screen on the center stack. To complete the sporty character of the car, carbon-fiber trims were installed on the dashboard and the center console.
But the real update was on the technological side. A 3.8-liter V8 engine was placed under the hood and paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Power went to the rear wheels only, via a standard limited-slip differential. For better control of the 580 hp, the Quattroporte Trofeo was fitted with an Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) system, tuned for enhanced vehicle dynamics, and better active safety.
