The 100,000th Maserati, a white Quattroporte GranSport MY17 destined for China, has rolled off the production line.
Produced at the Avv Giovanni Agnelli Plant (AGAP) where the Ghibli sports saloon and the Quattroporte flagship saloon are built, celebrations were held to mark the production of the 100,000th car.
The white Quattroporte Model Year 2017 is equipped with the 350 horsepower 3.0 litre V6 Twin-Turbo engine built by Ferrari. The special Quattroporte is destined for China, a strategic market for Maserati and of primary importance for the brand’s flagship saloon car.
Alfredo Altavilla, FCA chief operating officer for the EMEA Region said, ‘The Maserati brand’s impressive growth during the last few years has been one of the major developments at the Premium end of the market; the sixth generation of the Maserati saloon, developed here at Grugliasco, is the best-selling Quattroporte of all time and almost 70,000 units of the Ghibli, built here, have now left the production line, meaning that in little more than three years it has become the most successful Maserati of all time.
As well as the AGAP, Grugliasco and Mirafiori, Turin plants, Maserati has a third production location at its historic headquarters on Viale Ciro Menotti in Modena, where the GranTurismo and GranCabrio sports cars are built.
