When it comes to choosing yourself an Italian sports car, I wouldn’t blame if you immediately went straight to the nearest Ferrari dealership and demanded the keys to a spectacular Ferrari 599. Before you did that however, there would be many factors to consider. The three main ones as far as most people are concerned are practicality, cost and resale value. In this case, the Ferrari models tend to fall flat on their face. There is an alternative though, which would allow you to own an Italian sports car that can tick the box of all the Ferrari’s failings; the Maserati Quattroporte.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Maserati Quattroporte is the name. “Quattroporte” literally translates as 4 door, which is quite a rare commodity for a sports car to have. This is where the practical element of the car comes into play. Four doors and plenty of room in the back means that you can transport your family around, without having to sacrifice one iota of performance or driveability.
I strongly suggest that the prudent buyers amongst us take a look at the used Quattroporte market. This is where you are likely to find the lion’s share of the bargains and thanks to depreciation of prestige vehicles, you may pay a lot less than you were expecting.
By buying a Used Maserati Quattroporte you are getting the best of both worlds; an affordable sports car with all the practicality of a luxurious family saloon. That seems like a fantastic combination.
