CDC International Ltd. have just released images and specifications for their performance package tailored for the Maserati Quattroporte. CDC’s upgrades include changes to the exterior, interior and drivetrain. As usual a generous amount of unpainted carbon-fiber makes its way into the aero kit, which includes a new front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper, diffuser, roof spoiler, rear spoiler, and new mirror housings.
Using a newly developed twin-turbocharger system with intercooling, CDC have managed to raise the power output to 572 hp and 420 lb-ft (570 Nm) of torque. That’s comfortably more than even the top-spec Maserati Quattroporte GT S can manage at 450 horsepower. Aside from the turbochargers the CDC Quattroporte also features a variable-sound sports exhaust which can be switched between respectably quiet, and ridiculously loud.
CDC International have given the Maserati Quattroporte some larger brakes to cope with the extra power. The setup consists of 12-piston calipers and 405 mm discs up front. With 4-piston calipers and 380 mm discs at the rear. All discs are drilled and slotted, and all the brake lines are high performance braided lines. To compliment the new brakes CDC have also fitted the car with a sportier, fully-adjustable suspension system, and comfort-butchering oversized 22-inch wheels.
Finishing off the CDC International Quattroporte’s accessories list is a re-upholstered interior. Hand-stitched quilted leather has found its way onto almost every surface. And where it hasn’t been used, carbon fiber has. All other trim pieces have been finished in gloss black to match the exterior styling details.
CDC haven’t yet published a price list for their Quattroporte accessories. But chances are it’s only those with the ability to afford four-door supercars like the Quattroporte in the first place who’ll be able to afford CDC’s services. Makes sense really.
