Maserati has released the first images and information of the new Quattroporte generation. The Maserati Quattroporte will be officially presented at the Auto Show in Detroit. The new Maserati Quattroporte comes with a much larger space for your knee and leg. Even with this scaling, the Maserati promises to be lighter than current generation, thanks to the use of aluminum in the body. The total weight will drop from 4387 of 4276 pounds.
There is no information about Maserati Quattroporte’s engine, but emissions and consumption will be reduced by using a new eight-speed transmission developed by ZF.
Lorenzo Ramaciotti, Head of Maserati Design Center: "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."
"The innovative Maserati proprietary engines of the all-new Maserati Quattroporte have all been designed and developed by Maserati and Ferrari engineers in the heart of Italy's motor valley. As a matter of fact, they are going to be produced in the Ferrari plant in Maranello that has been synonymous with cutting-edge technology and passion for well over 60 years.
Passion is indeed the middle name of a whole new generation of Maserati engines that will equip the all-new Maserati Quattroporte and the models that will soon follow her on the market. The passion and state-of-the-art technology that is at the heart of all the new Maserati engines that will be mounted on the next generation of Maserati products have produced engines that are not only more powerful than ever, or more exciting to drive than ever – bust also more eco-friendly than ever before." - Paolo Martinelli, Maserati Powertrain Director
"Refined technical solutions, an explicit attention to the most challenging targets in terms of performance, comfort, efficiency and safety – these are the key elements of the all-new Maserati Quattroporte.
