  • From the blogspot "Full Collectors' Guide Maserati Quattroporte / Royale III Tipo AM330 1979-1990":

  • "The Italian Head of State, Sandro Pertini, used a Quattroporte, for example, apparently even turning up to a meeting with Enzo Ferrari in one.
    In the USA, the Quattroporte was a cool style statement and became something of a Hollywood star, featuring in films like The Running Man, Rocky and on TV in the legendary Miami Vice. Its most important starring role, however, was in The Godfather Part III. Until the modern era, it was the most-featured Maserati on film. Times were changing and Maserati's clientele was too. The old-school, old-money royalty of times gone by was giving way to the modern rich of music and film."
