2013 Maserati Quattroporte Tastefully Refreshed Ahead of Detroit Debut
In recent history, Maserati’s two-car lineup (the GranTurismo and Quattroporte) has been one of the most pronounced and recognizable faces on the market. The Quattroporte is an elegant and muscular sports sedan, with a carnal V8 to match, while the GranTurismo is a favorite amongst the wealthy elite. Its wedge-like shape is matched to a sweeping coupe profile. Both of these cars are successful in their own right.
In the rear, it's of the same; revised, modern taillights are matched to a smoother rear end, and overlapping quad exhaust tips accent the finished product.
Inside, technology has been given a boost through the use of a new iPad-like touch screen infotainment center, and a futuristic speedometer and tachometer.
Although Maserati was slim on performance details, we expect the 2014 Quattroporte to one-up the previous generation, and boast more power courtesy of a Ferrari-sourced V8. It is also suspected the new four-door Mazer' will employ a more efficient turbocharged V6.
