This week, Maserati have shown us what their next Quattroporte sedan will look like, and it is set for a public debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in January.
In terms of design, there is a resemblance to the GranTurismo range at the front, while the rest of the body uses a more modern design. The interior has new features as well, such as: a new steering wheel, a new gear lever, a new touchscreen interface, etc.
No specific details regarding performance and the engine have been released, except for the fact that the Quattroporte will continue to use a Ferrari-built V8 engine. Maserati claim that the new engine will not only be more powerful than the engines in the current Quattroportes, but also more fuel efficient. A ZF automatic transmission will likely be the only gearbox option for the Maserati.
Although the new Quattroporte will be slightly longer than the current one, it will weigh slightly less. SOC will publish more details as its Detroit debut approaches.
