The 2020 Maserati Quattroporte is an Italian luxurious sedan that’s accessible in a variety of flavors. Recently, now we have had a couple cross by way of the Autoblog short-term loaner fleet, and I made a determination to take the prospect to report an exhaust clip and see whether or not or not it’s louder than my 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392.
You thought now we have been carried out with this, didn’t you? Hah.
The Maserati is a little little bit of an odd duck. Like the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, which kicked off this assortment, it’s an Italian sedan powered by a turbocharged V6 producing a respectable 430 horsepower. Unlike the four-cheese, the Quattroporte in our storage was not its high-performance variant. In fact, if it have been, it might have a V8, as all points should. I’m kidding. Or am I?
Sadly, the V6 most definitely holds the S Q4 once more on this particular ‘take a have a look at,’ which resulted in a finding out of 78.2 decibels. That’s far in want of my Challenger, which checked in at 85.7 dB and stays our reining champion … for now.
The Quattroporte is in pretty respectable agency, though, as a result of Porsche Cayenne S Coupe, which produced a associated consequence. Yeah, that’s an SUV, nevertheless that’s a luxurious vehicle, correct? So the missions are associated. Heck, they even make concerning the an identical power.
These checks are solely vaguely scientific, and I conduct them using a free Android OS sound-measuring app and the principally enclosed space of my non-public storage. For these which might be unfamiliar with my methodology (and as soon as extra, I benefit from that point interval significantly loosely), you can refer once more to my earlier checks with the Alfa or the Cayenne S Coupe for further particulars.
Or, merely click on on the gorgeous hyperlinks to take heed to engines go burble-burble; it’s absolutely as a lot as you.
