1969 was the last year of production for the Maserati Quattroporte I, as production was discontinued due to the brand’s financial troubles. Maserati manufactured special editions of GT sedans a few years later and the next generation of Quattroporte was introduced in 1979. The 1969 Maserati Quattroporte I boasted a 4.7-liter, V8 unit, developed from Maserati racecar’s engines, capable of 290 hp and propelling the car up to 140 mph. At the time, this was the best four-seater GT you could get: luxurious, spacious, beautifully designed, and incredibly fun to drive. Updates were made throughout the years and the car now featured a redesigned and more solid rear suspension, disk brakes all around and options such as air conditioning and a three-speed automatic transmission.
The 1969 Maserati Quattroporte I was an all-new concept as a four-door supercar, and became one of Maserati’s signature designs for many generations. Not only is the Quattroporte highly enjoyable to drive thanks to its powerful and well-tuned engine linked a smooth five-speed manual or three-speed automatic gearbox, but the car also wears a remarkably elegant body, penned by Pietro Frua. While most classic Maseratis from the era have been well taken care of and are in good shape, it is important to have the car inspected by an expert when looking to buy a particular model. A trustworthy and competent classic Maserati specialist will be able to look at the vehicle and papers and tell you exactly what the car is worth and what you are to expect in terms of maintenance in the near future. As service on classic Maseratis can be onerous and time consuming, it is always recommended to purchase the best condition model within your price range.
