Paying homage to the 1986 Royale iteration of the third generation Quattroporte luxury sedan, Maserati announced on Monday that the series name is being resurrected for the newest generations of the V6-equipped Quattroporte, Levante and Ghibli.
While only 51 units were produced for the original Royale series, 100 will be created for the collection's revival. According to the company, their engines will range from 3-liter V6 diesel engines putting out 275hp to 3-liter V6 petrol engines capable of generating up to 430hp.
The models will be available in one of two unique, opalescent exterior paint colors — a shimmering dark blue (Blu Royale) or deep teal (Verde Royale) — complimented by Anthracite rims and silver brake calipers.
On the inside, owners can choose between two types of posh leather upholsteries — Zegna Pelletessuta Cuoio or two-tone Pieno Fiore leather in Black/Cuoio — to pair with high gloss inserts.
In terms of technology, these models come with a Bowers & Wilkins Sound System as standard along with the Cold Weather, Premium and Driving Assistance Plus Packages to ensure driver and passenger safety at all times in all weather conditions.
Like the rest of the non-Royale range, this special series has a Maserati Touch Control Plus unit, an 8.4-inch touchscreen display, and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
• Ordering for the 100 Royale series units are open now with the first deliveries scheduled for March.
