One doesn't normally expect a Maserati to duke it out on level terms with Mercedes, Audi, BMW and Jaguar but with the Quattroporte, that's exactly what the Italian company found itself doing. And rather successfully, it has to be said. A poor used 'QP' can spell big bills though. Caveat emptor.
Maserati has a long history of building fast four door cars. Some of them have even been quite good. There have been some misses along the way but few expected the massive success of the fifth-generation Quattroporte, launched in 2004. Voted the coolest car on the planet by GQ magazine's Objets De Luxe review, the Quattroporte quickly became a viable alternative to the Eurocrat German marques. Here's how to snag a used example.
The Maserati Quattroporte is an absolute gem if you can find a well-looked after car and a liability if you get sold a pup. Maserati franchised dealers represent your best chance of improving your odds but bargains will be hard to come by. The best cars are the late Sport GT models with the automatic gearbox but these are still very thin on the ground. An early Cambiocorsa gearbox model looks good value with prices dipping under £45,000 for higher mileage examples. Given that this is upspec BMW 5 Series money, it's hard to resist.
Borrowing £7,500 on a Hire Purchase agreement over 48 months, a representative APR of 18.5% and a deposit of £0.00,
the amount repayable would be £216.89 a month, with a total cost of credit of £2,910.72 and a total amount
payable of £10,410.72.
