Maserati Quattroporte 2013

2013 Maserati Quattroporte

New Maserati Quattroporte - 2013 Maserati Quattroporte

Well that didn't take long at all. Although we just saw spy shots of the new Maserati Quattroporte last week, Maserati has now taken the wraps off its redesigned sedan ahead of a confirmed Detroit Auto Show debut. Although no official details for the car were released just yet, we can infer quite a few changes just from the images. Celebrating 50 years of the Quattroporte, Maserati is referring to this new car as a 2013 model, but it will arrive next year for the 2014 model year in the US. The overall exterior styling of the new Quattroporte hasn't evolved too far away from the current car.
There is still the sloping hood, vented fenders and shapely body lines, but it also gets a much sleeker roofline and more steeply raked front glass. It also appears that the rear wheels no longer cut into the rear doors, suggesting a longer wheelbase.
The biggest change made to the car's styling is found in the rear of the car where horizontal taillights and exhaust tip design now gives it a strong Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG vibe. Inside, the four-passenger sedan now gets a more stylish two-tier instrument panel, a larger touch-screen display on the center stack and what looks to be equally sized monitors for the rear-seat entertainment system. Under the hood, we can definitely tell that the Quattroporte still uses a V8, but aside from the press release calling it an "all-new next generation powertrain," we don't have any real details of what powers the car. Or do we? The rear 3/4 image of the new design shows a license plate number of "QP 530 HP" possibly suggesting the engine's output has been raised to 530 horsepower up from the current 425. We are also expecting a supercharged V6 at some point down the line with an output of around 420 hp, and it is likely that both engines will be paired to eight-speed automatic transmissions.

The Maserati Quattroporte is a luxury four-door saloon made by Maserati in Italy. The name translated from Italian literally means "four doors". There have been five generations of the car, each separated by a period of roughly seven years.

Quattroporte I 

In the early 1960s, Maserati's reputation was at a high. With growing sales, Prince Karim Aga Khan ordered a special Maserati 5000 WP, chassis no. 103,060, designed by Pietro Frua. The following year, Maserati showed the first-generation Quattroporte of 1963, which bore a striking resemblance to the earlier drawing. While the design was by Frua, construction was carried out by Vignale.

Quattroporte II 
In 1974, at the Turin Show, Maserati presented its Quattroporte II (AM 123)[6] on an extended Citroën SM chassis, available since Citroën had purchased the Italian company. It had sparse and slick Bertone bodywork, penned by Marcello Gandini and fashionable at the time, and was the only Maserati Quattroporte to feature hydropneumatic suspension and front wheel drive.

Quattroporte III/Royale
Considered a "business man's Maserati," the Quattroporte III was presented by newly empowered Maserati chief Alejandro de Tomaso and his design staff in 1977. This was a rear wheel drive car, powered by a large V8 engine. It was important to de Tomaso that there be an Italian vehicle to compete with the recently launched Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9. The Quattroporte III marked the last of the hand-built Italian cars. All exterior joints and seams were filled to give a seamless appearance.

Quattroporte IV
The Quattroporte IV from 1994 was a restyled and updated version of the 430, the four-door version of the Biturbo coupe. It was designed by Marcello Gandini, also known for penning the Lamborghini Countach, Urraco, Espada, Miura, Lancia Stratos, and Bugatti EB110. The new car was smaller, very aerodynamic (0.31 cd), and featured Gandini's trademark angular rear wheel arch.

Quattroporte V
In 2004, Maserati started production of the Pininfarina-designed Quattroporte, with the same dry sump 4.2 L engine as the Coupé, Spyder and the new GranTurismo but improved to 400 PS (294 kW). Due to its greater weight than the Coupé and Spyder, the 0-62 mph (0–100 km/h) time for the Quattroporte is 5.6 seconds and the top speed is 167 mph (269 km/h).[11] The Quattroporte was unveiled to the world at the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 9, 2003 and made its US première at the 2003 Pebble Beach Concours d'Élégance.

Wer Maserati Quattroporte fährt, trägt keinen Anzug von der Stange – er lässt schneidern. Und hegt natürlich auch hohe Ansprüche ans Design des automobilen Blechkleids. Wie die neue Haute Couture aus Modena ausfällt, zeigen jetzt die ersten Fotos der sechsten Generation des Quattroporte, die Anfang 2013 an den Start geht. Im Grundkonzept sind die Designer der langen Tradition treu geblieben: Der typische Kühlergrill, die charakteristischen drei Luftauslässe im Kotflügel und die dreieckige C-Säule bleiben erhalten, ebenso der sexy Hüftschwung im hinteren Seitenbereich der Sportlimousine. Neu sind die ausgeprägte Gürtellinie, die sich vom Kotflügel bis zu den Heckleuchten durchzieht, die neuen Schweinwerfer, Rückleuchten sowie rahmenlose Seitenscheiben.

Si erano già viste da tempo le foto spia della Maserati Quattroporte 2013, ma ecco finalmente le prime immagini ufficiali. Il debutto dovrebbe essere programmato per il prossimo Salone di Detroit nel mese di gennaio e la nuova generazione dell’ammiraglia del Tridente rappresenta il nuovo corso del marchio, con cui si spera di aumentare ulteriormente il volume di vendite nel corso dei prossimi anni. Nei piani del marchio del Gruppo Fiat, infatti, si cercherà di arrivare a 50.000 vetture vendute all’anno entro il 2015. Per il momento la maggior parte dei dettagli tecnici riguardanti la Quattroporte sono stati tenuti segreti, ma intanto è possibile confermare che il nuovo modello sarà più lungo e più spazioso del precedente. Ma soprattutto sarà più leggero e ancora più performante.

イタリアのスポーツカーメーカー、マゼラーティは第六世代となるラグジュアリーサルーン「クアトロポルテ」のニューモデルを公開しました。来年の1月中旬に開催されるデトロイトモーターショウでワールドプレミアとなります。 クアトロポルテと言えば、ラグジュアリー・スポーツ・セダンという新しいセグメントを創り上げたマゼラーティのフラッグシップモデルです。 エクステリアは、前モデルから継承したフロントグリルやボディーサイドの排気孔、三角形を成すCピラーなど、キープコンセプトです。 気になるのが動力性能ですが、パワートレインは刷新されます。詳細は明かされていませんが、マゼラーティとフェラーリの共同開発のV8ユニットとなります。生産はフェラーリのマラネッロ工場で生産されます。 そして注目が、新開発の6気筒エンジンを搭載するという計画です。また、駆動方式は伝統のFRが基本ですが、オプションでAWDも用意される、とのこと。 詳細は、来年のデトロイトモーターショウまで待つ必要があります。
