1979 Maserati Quattroporte

With the sixth generation just introduced, the Quattroporte has become the symbol for Maserati’s newfound success in the North American marketplace. Long from the general public’s memory when the company returned in 2002, their sports cars and luxury saloons have become the go to choice for those seeking something a little bit different than the mainstream luxury choice. During the 1980s, while Maserati foisted the unreliable Biturbo on the world, the Quattroporte was being produced in small numbers with the stalwart four cam V8 under its hood. Nowadays, these big cruisers can be had for cheap, even ones that are in decent shape. This early production Quattroporte for sale in Germany was recently imported from Italy and has the rare ZF 5-speed manual gearbox.

For sale is a Maserati Quattroporte of 1979, German H- approval in full running order. This is the legendary 4.2 L V8 with 260 hp and the ZF sport gearbox. From this last hand-built Quattroporte only 50 pieces were produced. The car was driven in 2012 directly from Italy to Germany in April 2012 and got the full acceptance, without flaws. After that, I've done about 5,000 km without problems.

Equipment and state :
1. The paint is "Italian" that is to say here and there it is not perfect.
2. Rear left wheel well has a couple of small rust bubbles but nothing terrible
3. The bottom sill needs some work. The TÜV 2012, said it was still okay, but later they will need to be fixed.
4. The radiator hoses should be replaced
5. The leather is not broken, cracked or has holes, but a fine patina.
6. The wood is in good condition.
7. All electrical helper function, like eg the seat adjustment, power windows, etc.
8. Climate control does not work because you have to be prepared only on the German standard
9. The expensive magnesium wheels (5x) are in good condition.

A tour with test drive at any time. The car has been approved and is in Bernau am Chiemsee. For questions, I can always be reached at 0171/ 6117480

I have described to the best of my knowledge and belief the car to be free of troubles. There are no new cars and classic cars in the classification of a 3 - get ready to drive with flaws and room for improvement and beautification, but at the price absolutely realistic. The minimum price is well below the price in Mobile, etc since I have the car under note no space. Of this rare model, there are only very few copies because most Quattroporte were cannibalized by the much more expensive Ghibli Kahmsin and to provide them with technology, so this is certainly of great interest to collectors.

The car is a private sale without any return, exchange, warranty or conversion. If the reserve price is reached, the buyer must pay the half of the purchase price immediately and collect the car within 14 days in Bernau am Chiemsee and pay the balance upon completion of auction. Failure to comply and my attorney will sue for the purchase price, so please only bid if you want to have the car and can pay. Thank you for visiting my auction.

As the seller describes, the car is listed on Mobile.de for €10,900 (~ $14,733 USD). For a Quattroporte in good nick you can expect to pay somewhere between $9,000 and $15,000, so this one falls towards the high end a bit, considering a few items need to be addressed. However, the reserve has been set below that price. If you're looking for a classic luxury car with almost unmatched exclusivity, these Series III Quattroportes are hard to beat.
