Well after numerous spy shots of the 2014 and the sixth iteration of the Maserati Quattroporte has gone official and will make its worldwide unvail in January at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show.
The new model will have a longer wheelbase and lighter due to the use of lightweight composites and aluminium with a kerb weight of 1940kg 50kg shy of the outgoing model.
The launch version will be sold with a revised V8 engine made by Ferrari and also will be available for the first time is the all wheel drive system adopted from the Ferrari FF, there is no mention of the engine displacement but we expect to house a 4.7-liter 470 hp v8.
The new Maserati Quattroporte is a high-performance sports luxury sedan that reinterprets the design features of classic Maseratis in a contemporary design language. Its style was born out of the guiding design principles of Maserati: harmony of shapes, dynamism of lines, Italian elegance.
More generous in size when compared to the previous model, the new Quattroporte has a design that is at once graceful and sinuous, fashioned to bring out the sporty nature of the car.
Some of the elements characterizing the previous model have been purposely maintained: the front grill, the three side vents, the triangular C pillar. At the same time new style and functional features were introduced: the strong belt line that runs through the entire side of the car giving the new Quattroporte a look and feel that is at once muscular and elegant with frameless doors and three side windows.
Inside, the design of the Quattroporte aims at essentiality, stressing the simplicity of lines and the full functionality of the in-board instrumentation. Functional elements are blended with soft quality surfaces made of prestigious woods and refined leathers.
