Cars I've (Wished I'd) Owned (Part 13 of 14)
Aka: “The Dream”
Yes, for only $130,000 you too can own the Pininfarina designed, Ferrari engined, spectacle of Italian design and performance that is the Maserati Quattroporte. I see these roll through La Jolla all the time (thanks to one of California’s only dealers being right here in town) and I love them. For the six figure price tag, you get a 4.2 liter, 400hp, 0-60 in 5.5 second engine, topping out at 167mph. It’s got near perfect (47% to 53%, front to rear) weight distribution. It’s a 6-speed V8 that still manages to get 20mpg – all crazy specs for a car weighing 4,000 pounds. There is nothing like that Maserati Trident emblem. This car is ridiculous.
