The first generation of Maserati Quattroporte was introduced in 1963 and opened the way to a long list of exceptional Italian autos. Quattroporte means four-door in Italian and is commonly abbreviated into QP. A four-door, four-seat supercar was quite rare in the early 1960s, and actually still is nowadays, which gave Maserati an advantage on its competitors. The design of the Maserati Quattroporte I was penned by Pietro Frua who gave the car both curvy lines and angular shapes. The front twin rectangular headlamps were characteristic, as well as the trident logo proudly decorating the wide grille. All wheels were equipped with disk brakes and first models featured a De Dion rear suspension, later replaced by a more simple leaf springs arrangement. A four-cam V8 engine powered the Maserati Quattroporte I, with a capacity of 4.2 liters for the first units, then upgraded to a 4.7-liter unit.
