MASERATI has taken the wraps off the most sporting iteration of its Quattroporte sedan yet produced.

Due to make its global debut at the Detroit motor show on January 11, when Maserati will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its first Indianapolis victory, the Quattroporte Sport GT S is based on the new 4.7-litre ‘S’ version of the Italian marque’s facelifted luxury sedan, which itself is due on sale here within months.

Australian and New Zealand deliveries of the even more aggressive Sport GT S are expected to take place from the third quarter of 2009, featuring a number of upgrades over the Quattroporte S upon which it is based.
