The Quattroporte was introduced at the October-November 1963 Turin Motor Show, where a pre-production prototype was on the Maserati stand next to the Mistral coupé. Regular production began in 1964. The Tipo 107 Quattroporte joined two other grand tourers, the Facel Vega and the Lagonda Rapide and was capable of travelling at 124mph on the new motorways in Europe. It was equipped with a 4.1-litre, V8 engine, producing 260hp at 5000rpm and either a five-speed ZF manual transmission or a three-speed Borg Warner automatic on request. In 1966, Maserati revised the Tipo 107, adding the twin headlights already used on the U.S. model. A leaf-sprung solid axle took place of the previous De Dion tube. The interior was completely redesigned including the dashboard which now had a full width wood-trimmed fascia.
