The Maserati 2014 Quattroporte Set to be Unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show
The sixth generation Quattroporte luxury sports sedan from Maserati is set to be unveiled at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show in mid-January of 2013. While preliminary photos reveal a silhouette car enthusiasts have come to expect from the Italian dynamo, specs are being withheld at this point – although car insiders point to the BMW 7-Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Jaguar XJ as the Quattroporte’s main rivals. Head of the Maserati Design Center, Lorenzo Ramaciotti, explained, “Its style was born out of the guiding design principles of Maserati: harmony of shapes, dynamism of lines and 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.” According to Maserati, the 2014 Quattroporte will be powered by an all-new, next generation powertrain designed and developed by Maserati and Ferrari engineers and built at Ferrari’s Maranello plant. Expect more details as they become available.
