2014 Maserati Quattroporte revealed in patent drawings

The many spy shots we have seen for the next generation Maserati Quattroporte have all been heavily camouflaged, leaving us completely unsatisfied. Thankfully, some internet ninjas have found a series of patent drawings registered at the European Patent Office of the new Maserati Quattroporte , so we can get a somewhat clearer view of the future luxury sedan.

The patent drawings reveal that the next Quattroporte will get a new exterior design language, just as Maserati already promised we’d see. There will be a much sharper front-styling inspired by the Kubang concept car unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and the same tail-light design as revealed by the spy shots.

As for what we already know, the new Quattroporte will be moved to an entirely new rear-wheel drive platform that will use lightweight aluminum extensively to reduce the total weight by about 330 lbs. Under the hood, we will see a supercharged V6 and a twin-turbocharged V8 engine.

The new Maserati Quattroporte will be making its world debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, so stay tuned!

They said they are going to borrow the power train of the Ferrari. If that’s about to happen, I’ll be the first on attaching on every detail of this 2014 Quattroporte.

I hope the exterior paint that they’ll use is better than the Quattroporte.

It has some additional linings on its hood. That seems to be the change in this new Maserati.

The rear fascia is better than the last one they have. And I guess with these changes on Maserati, they might have the attention of an enthusiast.

It’s perspective view is still the same like the former Maserati Quattroporte.

It looks somehow old-fashioned, but still its performance is nerve-cracking.

I want to see the concept version by the end of this year. I’m excited about the concept that they are going to borrow the Ferrari’s hybrid power train.

It looks just the same Quattroporte, but I do hope they can choose other exterior colors aside from black and blue.

It has a very stylish design based on its prospective design.
