New Maserati Quattroporte Spied Less Disguised

Our spies have caught the next generation Maserati Quattroporte testing in Italy with less disguise, revealing wide grill with the Maserati logo.

Most of the car still wears heavy panels to hide the final look, but it is clear the new model is following a four-door coupe body style similar to the Audi A7 Sportback and the Porsche Panamera.

Power is expected to come from a 4.7 litre V8 engine with around 470bhp that will be mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission system. A hybrid version is also likely to follow in addition to all-wheel-drive system from the Ferrari FF.

Official debut is very likely end of 2012 or early 2013. Around the same time a smaller saloon known as “baby Quattroporte” is also expected to debut with a production name “Levante”, going against the likes of BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class.
