The fourth generation of the Maserati Quattroporte was presented at the Turin Motor Show in April 1994. It was the first car to be presented under full Fiat ownership. The sober but elegant design came from Marcello Gandini, just like the spectacular Shamal five years earlier. In comparison to the first generations of the Quattroporte, the Quattroporte IV was very compact, but its performance was that of a true Gran Turismo, with a top speed of 161 mph and acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in less than six seconds. From 1996, the Quattroporte was also made available with the 3.2-liter, 32-valve V8 engine from the Shamal, which improved performance even further.
