Building on the international success of the Maserati Quattroporte, two new versions of the model will take pride of place on the Maserati stand at Frankfurt in September, one of which will be the Quattroporte Sport GT.
Eagerly awaited as the car that would relaunch and consolidate the great Trident tradition, the Quattroporte was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motorshow in 2003. The first orders were taken the same day from clients who were immediately struck by the unmistakable style and advanced technology without ever having driven the flagship model. Since then, the Quattroporte has been a bestseller in its category on the US, European and Asian markets.
The aggressive look of the Quattroporte Sport GT is captured in the carbon fibre interior, 20"" wheel rims with new design, external identification plate, sporty steering wheel, handbrake grip and aluminium pedal covers.
Brazilian company Dilutec has developed a complete gelcoat portfolio for shipyards, for applications ranging from the manufacture of the boat mould to small repairs of the hulls and decks.
UK company Norco Composites has invested in a larger spray booth and a new cutting and kitting machine to enable the company to increase productivity in line with growing demand from its marine customers.
Hexagon Composites' subsidiary Hexagon Lincoln has been selected to supply high-pressure hydrogen tanks for the first hydrogen fuel cell vessel in the US.
