1999 Maserati Quattroporte Evoluzione
Offered by Historics Auctioneers | Bicester, U.K. | September 23, 2023
The Quattroporte nameplate has been around with Maserati since the early 1960s. Each generation looked completely unlike the last, and the Marcello Gandini-styled fourth generation went on sale in 1994. It was angular and boxy, which was Maserati’s styling theme for the ’90s.
Maserati was also not a major volume player during the decade, even though they had been recently taken over by Fiat prior to this car launching. In 1997, Ferrari took a 50% stake in Maserati and helped them freshen up, which is where the Quattroporte Evoluzione came from. Power is provided by a twin-turbocharged 3.2-liter V8 good for 330 horsepower. Two V6s were also offered.
Production ended in 2001, with just 2,400 examples built, and only 730 of those were Evoluzione cars. They are quite rare and have also aged very well. This right-hand-drive example has an estimate of $16,000-$22,000. More info can be found here.
