The Maserati Quattroporte Concept is based on a modular platform that would allow to build a vehicle very quickly and to easily replace individual components as technology evolves.
Its structure takes inspiration from nature (dinosaur skeletons), from the iconic Maserati Birdcage model and from the historic rigid airships such as the Zeppelin.
The frame consists of a basic backbone where the engine and the gearbox are connected as “larger vertebra”.
The body shape is produced using the Stereolithography (SL) additive manufacturing
technology and can be tailored to the customer’s taste and requirements.
There are foor doors: the smaller rear door attaches to the front one thorugh a magnetic locking mechanism, forming a unique large scissor door.
