Maserati Quattroporte

Is the Quattroporte the most powerful, no. Is it the most expensive, no. Is it the fastest, no. What the Quattroporte is, is stunning. It is one of the few cars I can identify at the very first glance. It sounds like it is going 100mph just pulling away from the stoplight. It has to make our list of the cars of 2016.

Part of what draws me to the Maserati is that it is not as refined as so many of the other europian luxury sedans. There is a unique feel, a sense that it was made just for you. It does not resemble or feel like anything else, it is a Maserati through and through.

I know that this is not the first year of production of the Quattroporte, but it has grown on me since first I laid eyes on it. All I know is even if I bought the Aston Martin Rapid, I would still look at the Quattroporte with longing eyes and that says it all.
