The 2014 Maserati Quattroporte could feature two new Ferrari-built engines as part of an agreement reached with Fiat.

Car & Driver says the redesigned sedan will be offered with a 420 hp (313 kW / 426 PS) supercharged V6 and a 520 hp (388 kW / 527 PS) turbocharged V8.  The V6 engine won't be available at launch, but it will reportedly be 30% more efficient than the 4.3-liter V8 used in the Ferrari California. Both engines will be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which could be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system.

As we have previously reported, the next-generation Quattroporte will have four-door coupe styling and an aluminum-intensive platform that enables the model to weigh approximately 450 lbs (204 kg) less than its predecessor.
