These are the first two pictures of the new upcoming 2013 Maserati Quattroporte. The pictures follow initial spyshots, which were revealed a few months ago.
The Italian company already stated its intention to update its lineup with a brand new Quattroporte expected to be launched in time for the 2014 model year, but now we also know how it will look like.
Maserati is thought to be developing a new rear-wheel drive platform. The new platform will make extensive use of lightweight aluminum and be capable of implementing a hybrid system. The all-wheel-drive system from the Ferrari FF is also being considered. The new Quattroporte is expected to keep its Ferrari-derived V8 and wonderful soundtrack.
Feel free to share your opinion about the new Quattroporte.
Update: The renders were also used in the following Italian car magazine Quattroroute. We do not know which magazine, nor do we know the origine of the pictures, but it seems they are only renders. We added both scans from the magazine to our gallery.
