The Quattroporte joined the Maserati stable in October-November 1963 when it was launched at the Turin Motor Show, where a pre-production prototype shared pride of place with a Mistral Coupe on the extravagant Maserati stand. Styled by Frua, the V8-powered Quattroporte was a landmark model for Maserati, being the Modena firm’s first four-door saloon and its first model to utilise unitary construction. The car was powered by a downsized – to 4.2 litres – version of the 5000 GT’s four-cam V8 producing 260bhp and mated to either a five-speed ZF manual transmission or a three-speed Borg-Warner automatic on request. It featured independent front suspension and a De Dion rear axle, though the latter was replaced by a conventional elliptically sprung live axle in 1967. ‘Car & Driver’ Magazine recorded a 0-60mph time of 8.7 seconds and wound their Quattroporte up to 120mph, estimating that there was another 10mph still to come, all of which was some going for a fully-equipped four-seater weighing close to 2 tons. The Tipo 107 was revised in 1966 adding the twin headlights already used on the U.S. model and the interior was completely redesigned including the dashboard which now had a full-width wood-trimmed fascia.  Regular production began in 1964 with the Quattroporte competing head-on with the two other established four-door Grand Tourers, the Facel Vega and the Lagonda Rapide looking for wealthy buyers wishing to traverse Europe at 120mph on the ever-increasing network of new motorways.

Swift and luxurious, the Quattroporte was necessarily expensive, with ownership confined to a relative handful of wealthy connoisseurs. Sales never reached the anticipated volumes, and by the time production ceased only 679 examples of the Quattroporte Tipo 107 and 107/A had been produced. Of these 679, this is one of only 7 right-hand drive Tipo 107 Quattroportes and was first registered new on 11/01/1967 to a Dr Ernest Kay of London NW11 finished in Grigio Metallizzato with contrasting Nero Perlato roof, trimmed in Pelle Bianca Leather, and fitted with the 4.1-litre V8 engine and manual transmission. It has been enjoyed by only five previous owners (three of which were from the same family) and has covered a total of 73,900 miles. It would appear to have been well maintained by marque specialist McGrath Maserati and is supplied with a comprehensive history file which contains the current V5C registration document, many other bills for maintenance, tax discs dating back four decades, a CD of restoration work carried out in 2010, and many old MOT Certificates corroborating the indicated mileage.
