Maserati Designed, Ferrari Powered

Despite their tumultuous past, Ferrari and Maserati share a tie to one another in more than just their country of origin. With models like the Maserati Quattroporte boasting Ferrari-built V8 and V6 engines, the former rivals remain intrinsically connected and continue to develop alongside one another as integral players within the global automotive performance industry. While Maserati momentarily stood as the luxury division of Ferrari, the modern commitment to performance and luxury without compromise results in the incorporation of Ferrari conceptualized (and built) powertrains alongside timeless Maserati craftsmanship and design.

The Ferrari F136 and F154 Engines

While Maserati models often feature both a V6 and V8 option, the "Ferrari-Maserati engine" F136 V8 in its numerous iterations remains a common sight within Maserati engine bays, while the more recent turbocharged evolution "Ferrari F154" V8 engine finds itself packed into the Maserati Quattroporte GTS, Maserati Levante GTS and Maserati Levante Trofeo. While the former was a joint endeavor by both Maserati and Ferrari, the latter remains a Ferrari designed and built engine utilized by Maserati in select models. Providing impressive power specifications and exhibiting balanced handling due to the precision engineering featured within both modern masterpiece engines, drivers opting for a Maserati model receive the assurance that their vehicles remain closely related and comparable in performance to Ferrari models within the same class - despite what Ferrari enthusiasts may vehemently deny.
