TTAC Photochop: Sixth Generation Maserati Quattroporte
For the last 40 years, Maserati has delighted us with one or two generations of their unique grand touring sedan. Several famous designers have worked during the years to dress the finest Italian sedan in the finest Italian clothing. Successively, Giorgetto Giugiaro, Alejandro de Tomaso and Marcello Gandini shaped-up the image we have in the back of our heads when we think "Quattroporte." In 2003, Pinifarina sculptured (in my opinion) the best Quattroporte ever. I sure hope the the sixth installment of Maserati's largest will get to be penned by the same Italian studio. I've rendered the gen six Quattroporte under the influence of the Grantourismo, and tried to add some nerve to that front fascia (it looks a little droopy on the current model). Pretending to be one of the guys at Pininfarina sure was fun, especially because this is a special rendering for me — number 100 since I got in the business. Andiamo!
The Quattroporte is a beautiful car and wonderful to drive (though I've only ridden as a passenger). That depection is gorgeous.
You certainly did the original justice, and indeed made the front fascia much tighter. Good job!
Huh, I don't know... I must admit you've done the design justice, and that's a tough task because it is one of the nicest looking cars on the road. And this is faithful to the design feeling. But those headlights, I'm not sure I like them better. Maybe I just like the car so much that nothing could improve it :)
The headlights look like an Infiniti M, far too "techno" without any soft Italianate curves.
