We are still awaiting the release of the all-new 2014 Quattroporte , and to say we are “patiently” waiting is an overstatement. Maserati is nearing its breaking point as its competition, which includes BMW , Mercedes and Jaguar, are running away with all of the profits, as the trident-bearing brand continues to pull up the rear in the sales race.
This all-new Quattroporte is a huge part of Maserati’s plans to increase its total sales to 50,000 units per year by 2015. So, needless to say, there is a lot riding on this release and we don’t want to see this famed brand get the axe. Maserati has already released tons of high-res images for us to see, but we have never actually seen the Quattroporte in action. That is, until today.
Maserati took the upcoming performance sedan to the Balocco Proving Grounds in early September 2012 and performed some night testing. This testing process was filmed and Maserati has released this film for us to see. Along with seeing the Quattroporte in action, we also get an earful of what to expect from the sedan. Unfortunately, we do not get an earful of the twin-turbo six-cylinder pumping away, but there is plenty of information passed along.
Check out the above video to get a good look at the upcoming model.
