CDC Performance’s version of the Black Bison kit that includes a new front bumper with a lip spoiler and LED lights, side skirts, a rear apron with a diffuser, roof and boot lid spoilers and new mirrors all trimmed in carbon fiber, are combined with a red finish for the body.
Other details include the black finish for the front grille and the 22-inch wheels that are wrapped in tires size 295/25-22 on the rear and 245/30-22 on the front axle.
The interior of the Quattroporte has been extensively reworked with black leather that is contrasted by red seams and piping, a carbon fiber decorative trim kit, new seat belt covers, handles and switchgear plus a revised instrument panel finished in red and black.
Performance upgrades include the development of a twin-compressor system with an intercooler for the V8 engine and a custom exhaust system that bump output to 572hp (580PS) and 570Nm (420 lb-ft). CDC Performance says the upgrades allow the Maserati to make the run to 100km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds and top out at just under 300km/h (186mph).
The Maserati Quattroporte also benefits from a high-performance brake system with 12 piston calipers in conjunction with 405x36mm 2-piece brake discs at the front and 4-piston calipers working with 380x34mm 2-piece brake discs at the rear, plus a height adjustable sports suspension system
