The recently spied 2014 Maserati Quattroporte is recieving two new Ferrari prepped engines as part of an partnership with Fiat.
The all new saloon will be offered with a 420 hp Supercharged V 6 and a 520 hp Twin turbo V8.
Both powerunits will be available with a ZF-sourced eight-speed servo actuated paddleshift transmission, Rumour has it the manual is to be discontinued.
We expect that also due to the weight reduction and a hinted reduction of around 200kg the 0-60 time on both cars will be under 5 seconds.
Expect to see a preview at the 2013 Detroit MotorShow.

Today the Subaru version of the Toyota-Subaru co-operation FT-86 has arrived to the Nürburgring in Germany for some track testing.
The two manufacturers are collaborating on a shared four-cylinder sports car that will be sold in two versions, beginning near the end of 2011, both sporting rear wheel drive for the purists.
Even if the Subaru version is very look-a-like to the Toyota/Scion there are some smaller changes. The rear side window for example. And in case with this prototype it is wearing MZ- numberplates, meaning its coming from the German Subaru test centre.
