Maserati has introduced an MC Sport Line package for the Quattroporte Sport GT S at the Australian International Motor Show.
Maserati claims that the package “is developed from the experience of Maserati Corse – Maserati factory-owned racing department”. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Well, not really.
What the MC Sport Line package does is replace all the wood trim on the interior with carbon fibre trim. Then Maserati adds some more carbon fibre bits, including door sills with the MC Sport Line logo, and aluminum pedals, with an MC logo on the brake pedal. That’s it. You won’t be going any faster or looking any better.
I do admit, however, that I’m a fan of carbon fibre trim. So if you’re into that thing and happen to be in the market for a sports sedan, perhaps this could sway you towards a Quattroporte.
The Quattroporte Sport GT S with MC Sport Line in Australia
19/10/2010 – Modena
Maserati has taken the opportunity to show the Quattroporte Sport GT S with the MC Sport Line package at this year Australian International Auto Show, which opened its doors in Sidney on October 15.
The Quattroporte Sport GT S with the added stylistic elements of the MC Sport Line option package is at the peak of sportiness in the Quattroporte range and perfectly embodies the character of Maserati luxury sport sedan.
The MC Sport Line equipment package is developed from the experience of Maserati Corse – Maserati factory-owned racing department – and Maserati winning motorsport programmes, both with the Maserati MC12 – once again this year leading the FIA GT1 World Championship – and the GranTurismo MC in its Trofeo and GT4 versions. The MC Sport Line, first launched on the GranTurismo S with electro-actuated gearbox – is now available across the GranTurismo and Quattroporte ranges.
The Maserati Quattroporte Sport GTS MC Sport Line replaces all the wood trim in the standard car with carbon fibre, across the dashboard, the front and rear centre consoles, sections of the door panels, the gear knob and around the switchgear. Additionally it is used around the instrument pack and on the gearchange paddles. Each of the door sills is fitted with carbon fibre trim panels embossed with the MC Sport Line logo and the MC logo is stamped into the aluminium brake pedal.
