What used Maserati Quattroporte saloon will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Maserati Quattroporte saloon?
Maserati drew praise when it launched the Quattroporte for its aggressive pricing next to rivals from BMW, Audi, Mercedes and Jaguar. However, retained values are good, so buying one won't be cheap.
If you're buying a nearly-new car, the firm's three-year free servicing deal will still apply. But, if you're outside that period, regular maintenance will be pricey. With an expensive, exclusive and desirable machine like this, group 20 insurance is unavoidable. That will hit your wallet hard, but it's worth shopping around specialist firms to get the best deal.
With a thirsty V8 engine under the bonnet, expect regular, costly trips to the petrol station, too. Official fuel economy is 14.9mpg, which will convert to less than that in real-world conditions. What's more, the fuel tank is small.
Oh, and try not to crash; repair bills on any luxury car are always high.
