Section 1: Picture and History


Maserati Quattroporte (tipo 130) equipped with hydro pneumatic suspension, fully powered brakes and DIRAVI, this car was pure CitroŽn apart from the engine (Equipped with the Merak/Citroen SM 3-liter V-6 engine) and styling. The layout of the major components is identical to the CitroŽn SM introduced in 1972. Equipped with 3 Weber 42 DCNF, the engine was able to run the car up to 200 Km/h (Compression ratio 8.8:1,  91.6x75 / 2965.4 cc). It was the same engine as the Mexico. The QP II project was put on the back burner during the oil crisis of 1975 and ultimately killed by the new De Tomaso management in 1977.

The QP II where introduced at the Geneva show in 1970. This first year of the Citroen era was a disaster, mainly due to strikes (Only 594 cars where built instead of 733).
