The Quattroporte was a model line of cars built by the Italian carmaker Maserati. Production came in several distinct series: 1963–1969, 1974–1990, and 1994–present. It belonged to the full-size luxury car class, and it represented the “F” (luxury cars) market segment.
The Maserati Quattroporte (aka the AM 107) which is most valued by classic car collectors and motoring enthusiasts are the first two series cars, from 1963-1969. It was produced as a 4-door sedan with large engines, with displacement ranging from 4136-4719 cc or 252-288.2 cubic inches, with power output of 191-220.5 kW (260-300 PS, 256-296 hp). Submodels were the Quattroporte Tipo 107 1a Serie (1963-1966) and the Quattroporte Tipo 107 2a Serie (1966-1969).
The 1963 Maserati Quattroporte was one of the most notable editions. It was a 4-door sedan body type using RWD (rear-wheel drive) and a manual 5-speed transmission. It utilized a petrol (gasoline) engine with displacement of 4136 cm3 or 252 cubic inches. Its advertised power was 191 213 kW / 256 286 hp / 260 290 PS and its torque was 363 Nm / 268 lb-ft.
