Maserati stands today at the edge of an unparalleled strategic and industrial growth that will see our presence in the world rise to 50,000 units a year by 2015. This growth is a challenge for which Maserati has carefully prepared itself.
 It is a growth based on those values of style, elegance, quality and performance for which Maserati has been always recognized and praised in almost 100 years of history. This exciting progression will make the new Maserati a true global player with two new production sites in two different continents and a heart solidly planted in Modena, Italy, where its roots are.
It is a growth that will be based on three new models entering two new segments of the automobile market — and it starts with the all-new 2013 Maserati Quattroporte.”
The new Maserati Quattroporte is a high-performance sports luxury sedan that reinterprets the design features of classic Maseratis in a contemporary design language. Its style was born out of the guiding design principles of Maserati — harmony of shapes, dynamism of lines, Italian elegance. More generous in size when compared to the previous model, the new Quattroporte has a design that is at once graceful and sinuous, and fashioned to bring out the sporty nature of the car.
Some of the elements characterizing the previous model have been purposely maintained: the front grill, the three side vents, and the triangular C pillar.
At the same time new style and functional features were introduced - the strong belt line that runs through the entire side of the car giving the new Quattroporte a look and feel
That’s at once muscular and elegant, the new front and rear lights, the three frameless side glasses.
Inside, the design of the Quattroporte aims at essentiality, stressing the simplicity of lines and the full functionality of the in-board instrumentation. Functional elements are blended with soft quality surfaces made of prestigious woods and refined leathers.”
Lorenzo Ramaciotti, head of Maserati Design Center, speaking about Maserati Quattroporte’s all-new next generation powertrain, says: “The innovative Maserati proprietary engines of the all-new Maserati Quattroporte have all been designed and developed by Maserati and Ferrari engineers in the heart of Italy’s motor valley. As a matter of fact, they are going to be produced in the Ferrari plant in Maranello that has been synonymous with cutting-edge technology and passion for well over 60 years.”
“Passion is indeed the middle name of a whole new generation of Maserati engines that will equip the all-new Maserati Quattroporte and the models that will soon follow on the market. The passion and state-of-the-art technology that is at the heart of all the new Maserati engines that will be mounted on the next generation of Maserati products have produced engines that are not only more powerful than ever, or more exciting to drive than ever – but also more eco-friendly than ever before,” he added.
Paolo Martinelli, Maserati Powertrain director, explaining Maserati Quattroporte’s key technical features, says: “Refined technical solutions, an explicit attention to the most challenging targets in terms of performance, comfort, efficiency and safety – these are the key elements of the all-new Maserati Quattroporte. Maserati engineers have worked with a competence matched only by their passion in chassis designing and engineering, weight reduction, and ergonomic enhancement to develop a car capable of fitting different
powertrain architectures and transmission configurations for the most diverse driving conditions but always maintaining Maserati’s trademark best-in-class driving comfort.”
The result is the all-new Maserati Quattroporte, a luxury sports sedan that reaches new heights in terms of performance and handling, driving enjoyment as well as respect of the world we live in - the best performance ever in the long history of Maserati’s four-door flagship sedan are matched by the unprecedented success in the quest for an eco-friendly automobile. All this done, of course, as expected from Maserati in the spirit of the most severe active and passive safety conditions.”
