The fifth generation Maserati Quattroporte has been around since 2004. Fortunately, the arrival of the sixth generation Italian sports saloon should be dawning upon us.

Over the past one year, prototypes of the new Quattroporte have been spotted in heavy camouflage. Now, for the first time, the upcoming model has been photographed without the bulky plastic claddings.

Measuring 5,097mm long, 1,895mm wide and standing 1,438mm tall, Maseratiís new luxury saloon will be rear-wheel driven and make use of lightweight aluminium to reduce the carís total weight. As evident from the images, the Italian flagship borrows styling cues from the GranTurismo models.

The car kind of reminds me of the Infiniti M saloon from the front angle. The quad trapezoidal exhaust pipes add an element of aggressiveness to the carís wide stance when viewed from the rear. The brake light appears to go around the perimeter of the taillight, a styling element first seen on the second generation Mercedes CLS.

The new Quattroporte will be offered with two new Ferrari engines, namely a turbocharged V8 engine and a supercharged V6 engine, both mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Maserati is expected to launch the new Quattroporte at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in the middle of January 2013.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
