Maserati has been around for over 100 years, but they’ve just now created their 100,000th vehicle. The historic car is a Quattroporte GranSport that was produced at the Grugliasco plant in Italy.
The Italian automaker presented the car at Auto Shanghai 2017, where they presented the car to its Chinese owner. At the unveiling, the car was shown with its solid white exterior and tan interior.
“China is Maserati’s largest market for Quattroporte in the world,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Maserati, while presented the car to its owner. “Our remarkable performance in China last year was a major contributor to our record-breaking global sales. China’s elites are increasingly enamored by the Italian brand of luxury, exquisite craftsmanship and passion for driving that are poured into every Maserati.”
Maserati also noted that their sales in China have increased 120-fold since 2004, which only saw 100 sales. In 2016, Maserati broke 12,000 sales in China. Yeah, that’s quite the leap in sales numbers.
