Maserati QuattroporteTue, 06 Nov 2012
Maserati has revealed the first pictures and details of the 2013 Quattroporte ahead of its official debut at the Detroit auto show in January.
The sixth-generation Quattroporte, a high-performance sports luxury saloon, will be the first of three new models that Maserati hopes will begin to increase its annual sales.
The car retains some of the design cues from the outgoing model, namely the front grille, three side vents and the triangular C-pillar, while it also features a sharp beltline that rises towards the car's rear and runs through the side of the car. The headlamps are much more angular on the new Quattroporte, giving it a more aggressive face when combined with the horizontal air intake running along the bottom of the grille.
Inside, higher-quality woods and leathers feature while the majority of the controls are accessed via a central touchscreen on the center console, which contribute to an improved sense of luxury in comparison to the current model.
The new model has been designed and developed under the leadership of Lorenzo Ramaciotti, Head of Maserati Design Centre.
