“The sole purpose of designing the new S4 system is to bring about a new
and 
well refined equilibrium between driving pleasure and road safety by
optimising certain features of the car.”

says Umberto Cini, the Managing
Director of Maserati for the Middle
East, India and Africa.

It is common knowledge that Italy is home to the world’s biggest supercar manufacturers, the Italian passion for automobileengineering and design is undoubtedly an integral part of the nation’s personality. One of the biggest names in Italy’s auto-making industry; Maserati , recently unveiled their state of the art and first ever A11WheelDrive (AWD) system, the Q4.

The mighty AWDe technology will be incorporated in Maserati’s fourdoor sedan models, namely the Quattroporte and Ghibli, the top-of-the-line S Q4 variants. The S Q4 variant of the Quattroporte and Ghibli equips them with a phenomenal acceleration of 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 and 4.8 seconds — which is faster than their rear-wheel drive counterparts – up to a top speed of 283 km/h and 284 km/h. Designed to maximize traction and to glorify Maserati’s engineering expertise, the S Q4 system offers its driver an exquisite rear-wheel driving experience, without compromising the comprehensive safety system geared for all road conditions. The new mechanism functions by emitting the generated traction to the front wheels on demand and with an inmiediate response.

The launch of the S4 will follow the launch of Maserati’s first ever SUV; the Levante, in 2016. The S Q4 provides 100% of the generated engine torque to the rear wheels in normal driving conditions, simultaneously optimizing fuel consumption and emissions. In low grip driving conditions, such as slippery or loose road surfaces, or in case of loss of grip at the rear axle, for example during acceleration fi’om zero or at very high cornering speeds, the system reacts instantaneously by transferring the necessary traction to the front wheels. The Q4 system is capable of altering the torque split from 100% rear wheel drive to equal 50-50 distribution between the front and rear wheels in a mere 150 milliseconds. The system controls and regulates itself actively and automatically as per the driving conditions, giving the driver an immaculate driving experience.

The Ghibli is Maserati’s latest addition to its model range and the first four door sports executive sedan by the Italian luxury brand. Designed by combining innovative design with exceptional handling qualities and outstanding performance, the Ghibli is a must have for car-enthusiasts and collectors the world over. In addition to the Ghibli S Q4, Maserati also offers the Ghibli and Ghibli S, all featuring a new-generation twin turbo-charged 3.01itre V6 engine and an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission. With its power output of 410 hp the Ghibli S races to 100 krn/h in 5.0 seconds and reaches a top speed of 285 krn/h. The Ghibli delivers 330 hp, a top speed of 263 Ian/h and acceleration of 0 to 100 lcm/h in 5.6 seconds.

These new models with the new and refined S Q4 technology undoubtedly glorify Maserati’s engineering expertise and ability to maximise sheer driving pleasure. Dreams on Wheels!
