Okay, so we have spotted disguised Maserati Quattroportes before, but never did we see one as heavily covered up as on these photos. What is Maserati hiding? A more extensive facelift than initially planned, or has Maserati tried to pull one over on us?
This prototype seems to be hiding a new front end, bigger headlamps and bigger air-intakes in the revised front bumper. Our spies also expect to see new engines with direct fuel injection in order to ensure better fuel economy, after all lower fuel consumption is the trend these days.
The rear had some black tape disguise too, so we can expect a few alterations on the back bumper as well. The Maserati Quattroporte is going to have some tough competition in the near future with the new Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide so keeping the car looking fresh and new is vital. The next-gen Quattroporte is not due until 2012.
