Thousand Oaks, CA. (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
Maserati North America, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has expanded its dealer network with the opening of Maserati of Westlake, part of O’Gara Coach Westlake. This new 10,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility will host Maserati sales and service for the Westlake Village region as well as points north and west.
“Since the opening of O’Gara Coach Westlake last September, we’ve been fortunate to enjoy both a warm reception and strong sales in this community. Now we’re thrilled to present the vehicles of Maserati at our new dealership, Maserati of Westlake, as yet another premiere automotive selection for our drivers,” said O’Gara Coach President Bruce Frederick.
Offering an unparalleled ownership experience, from the bespoke design of vehicles to a lifetime of exceptional service, O’Gara Coach Westlake is proud to bring their award-winning approach to Maserati of Westlake.
Maserati of Westlake will be selling and servicing all Maserati vehicles, especially the new Quattroporte unveiled at the 2013 North American International Auto Show and available this June. Larger, lighter, more powerful and efficient, the flagship 2014 Maserati Quattroporte sets the tone for Maserati’s range of models, while remaining faithful to Maserati’s position as the creator of the first sports luxury sports sedan in 1963.
Within the Quattroporte sits a newly-developed direct-injection engine family including a 523 hp/ 524 lb-ft 3.8-litre V8 and a 404 hp/ 410 lb-ft 3.0-litre V6 available with all wheel drive. Both engines are twin-turbocharged, designed by Maserati Powertrain and assembled by Ferrari at their plant in Maranello. All versions come equipped with the latest eight-speed automatic transmission developed with ZF. The V8 is the fastest four-door Maserati has ever built, reaching 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and achieving a top speed of 191 mph. The V6 twin turbo Q4 All-Wheel Drive variant is capable of a top speed of 177mph.
Exceptional standards of quality in design, development, fabrication and process controls are employed in the entirely new plant building the Quattroporte. However, traditional hand-crafted design continues inside and out of the sedan’s cabin with features like sumptuous leather, a touch control screen, WLAN-based WiFi and an optional 15-speaker, 1280 Watt Bowers & Wilkins audio system.
The new Quattroporte is dominated by a long, powerful front end and a concave Trident grill, drawing a clear design link to both historic Maseratis and the current range of two-door, four passenger GranTurismo models.
The GranTurismo range, including the celebrated Convertible and MC versions are recognized globally for elegance, performance and capability. Four adults can travel in an abundance of space and handcrafted luxury, while race-bred engines and six-speed adaptive automatic transmissions deliver thoroughbred performance, the unmistakable Maserati exhaust note and every day driving capability with a sense of occasion.
The current range of Maserati vehicles will be available for purchase at O’Gara Coach Westlake’s Maserati of Westlake beginning in February 2013. More information at http://www.maserati.us and http://www.ogaracoach.com/westlake.
