Market Launch of New Maserati Quatt

Market Launch of New Maserati Quattroporte with ZF Technology

l        8-speed automatic transmission delivers superb fuel economy, optimum shift comfort, and high driving dynamics
l        CDC electronic damping system enhances driving safety, comfort, and dynamics
The sixth-generation Maserati Quattroporte also comes with ZF technology to underscore the vehicle’s hallmark characteristics: The 8-speed automatic transmission (8HP) is synonymous with dynamics and comfort in equal measure – all combined with high fuel efficiency. The Continuous Damping Control (CDC) electronic damping system provides the vehicle with more driving safety, comfort, and dynamics by adapting the damping forces for each individual wheel within milliseconds and in the best possible manner.

ZF’s 8-speed automatic transmission is synonymous with high efficiency,
 fast reaction times,and superb ride comfort.

A luxuriousand sportytouring car that comfortably accommodates up to five – this concept enabled the first Maserati Quattroporte to claim its rightful place in the automotive world 50 years ago. The fifth-generation sedan rolled into the showrooms with ZF technology onboard. Similarly the sixth-generation Quattroporte, which is now being launched, also features this technology: The new Quattroporte puts onto the road 390 kW (530 hp) from the 3.8-liter V8 Biturbo coupled with the ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.

“Developing the application in light of this phenomenal engine torque is no mean feat,” says Dr. Gerhard Wagner, member of the ZF Board of Management and Head of ZF’s Powertrain Technology division. “With the 8HP for the Quattroporte we successfully managed to pull off brilliantly the delicate balancing act between sportiness and comfort.”

The right damping at all times: CDC delivers the ideal damping force on the Maserati
Quattroporte in fractions of a second to match the driving situation

Compared with its predecessor, the 8-speed automatic transmission delivers fuel savings of six percent. Together with the start/stop function, which the 8HP enables without an additional pump, the savings potential can even reach up to 11 percent. In doing so, ZF’s 8-speed automatic transmission is not only highly efficient but also extremely dynamic. It boasts extremely short response and shift times that basically go unnoticed. Double shifts and direct multiple shifts are also possible.
These wide-ranging characteristics are enhanced on the suspension side by the CDC electronic damping system. The system, made up of dampers and an electronic control unit, adjusts the suspension damping in fractions of a second to the particular driving situation. It enables the Quattroporte to switch almost instantly from a comfortable-soft to sporty-hard setting. As a result, the wheels maintain better contact with the road, which in turn translates into greater safety.
