The 2014 Maserati Quattroporte debuted at the Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS) kicking off an expansion of the Maserati line-up that will eventually include five new models. This is the sixth generation of the Quattroporte and it has been completely redesigned yet is still distinctly Maserati.
You’ll be able to get the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte as either a 410-horsepower V6 or a 530-horsepower V8 engine that is proprietary to Maserati and made by Ferrari in Maranello. They’ll also be offering an all-wheel-drive V6 called the Q4 which has a 50:50 torque split between the front and rear axles.
Both feature new exterior styling that update the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte with a curvy, aerodynamic design that’s different yet not that far off from the the previous model. It still has the same front grille, side vents and triangular C pillar.
Inside there’s a modern infotainment system and extra room for passengers thanks to its longer wheelbase. It’s also full of the special touches you’d expect in this level of sports sedan like wood and leather surfaces for a luxurious and comfortable ride.
Nicole Wakelin fell in love with cars as a teenager when she got to go for a ride in a Ferrari. It was red and it was fast and that was all that mattered. Game over. She considers things a bit more carefully now, but still has a weakness for fast, beautiful cars. When not drooling over cars, Nicole writes for Wired’s GeekMom.
