Exhaust test | 2020 Maserati Quattroporte vs ’13 Dodge Challenger SRT8

The 2020 Maserati Quattroporte is an Italian luxurious sedan that will come in several flavors. Not too long ago, we have experienced a pair pass by way of the Autoblog brief-time period loaner fleet, and I determined to choose the possibility to history an exhaust clip and see regardless of whether it is louder than my 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392. 

You assumed we were accomplished with this, failed to you? Hah. 

The Maserati is a bit of an odd duck. Like the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, which kicked off this series, it is an Italian sedan driven by a turbocharged V6 creating a respectable 430 horsepower. In contrast to the four-cheese, the Quattroporte in our garage was not its higher-overall performance variant. In reality, if it were, it would have a V8, as all factors should really. I am kidding. Or am I?

Unfortunately, the V6 likely retains the S This autumn back in this individual “test,” which resulted in a studying of seventy eight.2 decibels. That’s significantly brief of my Challenger, which checked in at eighty dB and remains our reining champion … for now. 

The Quattroporte is in fairly first rate firm, however, many thanks to the Porsche Cayenne S Coupe, which generated a related consequence. Yeah, that is an SUV, but this is a luxurious car, appropriate? So the missions are related. Heck, they even make about the same power. 

These checks are only vaguely scientific, and I perform them making use of a free of charge Android OS seem-measuring app and the largely enclosed area of my own garage. For these who are unfamiliar with my methodology (and all over again, I use that time period to some degree loosely), you can refer back to my earlier checks with the Alfa or the Cayenne S Coupe for much more information. 

Or, just simply click the quite backlinks to listen to engines go burble-burble it is totally up to you.
