The DNA of GranSport

Limited units of the Maserati Quattroporte GTS GranSport ‘Nerissimo’ Special Edition cars have arrived at the official importer-dealer, Al Tayer Motors showrooms within the UAE

Only fifty of the Limited-Edition vehicles are being made specifically for the Middle East region and Japan. One of the cars is currently on display at the luxury Al Tayer Motors showroom in Sharjah. “The UAE market has a strong affection for cars, particularly special, distinctive, unique models, and this is an exclusive opportunity for very select customers to own a unique flagship Quattroporte luxury sedan,” said Martino Picotti, the Senior Brand Manager, of Maserati, Al Tayer Motors.

Black is synonymous with elegance, but also with extreme sportiness, so it perfectly captures the dual personality inherent within the Maserati DNA. From this concept, ‘Nerissimo’ was born- a special edition of Maserati cars that emphasises their assertive sporting prowess, and high-performance capabilities. The Maserati Quattroporte GranSport GTS ‘Nerissimo’ Special Edition, embodies the excitement of the urban nights and enhances the aesthetic sportiness of the Quattroporte. Luxuriant Nero Ribelle paint, combined with Black Piano finishing on the front grille, as well as inserts on bumpers and rear extractor, create a truly unique bold statement.

Additionally, also getting clothed in black are the window surrounds, exhaust pipes and vertical grille bars. The vehicle also features front and rear sport bumpers, body-colour side skirts, 21” glossy Black Titano wheels, anodised Red painted brake callipers, and exterior Carbon package. The sleek interior of the car features 12-way power sport seats, full premium Black leather upholstery with Red stitching, as well as Red Embroidered Trident on the headrests, Carbon trim, gearshift paddles and door sills. Along with a Sport Carbon steering wheel, a dedicated interior badge ‘Nerissimo Edition One of 50’ and a Alcantara headliner. However, what is worth noting, is that through the Al Tayer Motors showrooms the restyled 2018 Quattroporte, is also available, which retains its top status in the high-end sedan segment. With power upgraded V6 versions and a new Electric Power Steering, that enables the new active Advanced Driving Assistance Systems.

The MY18 Quattroporte features significant upgrades and new hi-tech content designed to carry on its remarkable success story.
