Maserati is synonymous with style, sportiness and that special italian thing.  The only automotive brand to sport a trident, Maserati captured the hearts and minds of many a car collector.  Unlike Ferrari, Maserati never focused on the extreme performance category of automobiles, rather, it was coupes, GTs and 4-door saloons that made the marque famous.  Since Maserati's relaunch in the US market in the 2000's, lots has changed.  The old BITURBO moniker that plagued the brand in the 80's has now been replaced with quality, reputation and solid branding, all courtesy of Ferrari's ownership of the brand.

Naturally, as most every other manufacturer has brought to life - on board - some sort of high-end audio experience, Maserati, for the Quattroporte flagship sedan, decided to partner up with none other than Bowers & Wilkins.  This being SonicFlare, a review is most definitely on the table, alas, we will have to be somewhat patient as press loaner cars won't be available until the fall.  If B&O's Beosound collaboration is any indication, the Bowers & Wilkins system should make for stunning surround sound playback as you seat yourself in sumptuous, leather bucket seats prepared to tackle the morning commute, or, perhaps more pleasurably, the drive up or down PCH.  Stay tuned, should be fun!
