The new Maserati Quattroporte has been making quite the rounds in public recently. Two months ago, we saw the Italian automaker’s flagship luxury sedan putting in some work at Ferrari’s Fiorano race circuit and now a new sighting of the Quattroporte at the Brenner motorway near the Italian border has been captured on video by the folks from

Prior reports have claimed that the Quattroporte will carry a turbocharged V8 engine under its hood. While we won’t know for sure until the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, there are also rumors flying around that one powertrain option will be a 4.7-liter V8 engine that can produce 475 horsepower and will be mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

This video captured of the new Quattroporte doesn’t come close enough to warrant an audible sound of the engine, but the previous spy video seems to suggest that there could be some "turbo-ness" to the Quattrporte’s engine.

Stick around these pages and we’ll be sure to have more updates of Maserati’s new flagship, luxury sedan in the coming months leading up to its debut in Detroit next year. There’s something about this car that we feel has yet to be revealed and we’re no less excited than all of you to find out what it could be.

Are they going to have a 2013 Baby Quattroporte? That’s what I probably know about their next project.

Do they have some boosted output on this Maserati Quattroporte? I can’t hear how it sounds like Lamborghini.

I’m not quite satisfied by the performance of this new Quattroporte. This sedan is going to be a hit, but not as big as the former Maserati.

Well, I guess they are right that they will have the BMW M5, Jaguar XFR, and Mercedes E63 AMG as their competitors on the market. I believe that they are able to surpass those three giants with the powertrain that Quattroporte has.

You can hear the engine roar on that video. The Quattroporte serves as one of the best running vehicles caught on video while dressed on a heavy camouflage.

Does it still use the same engine on the previous model of Quatrroporte? I think this one is better when it comes on smooth driving experience.

Nothing is impossible with the Maserati Quattroporte goals; it seems, just like what everyone else is saying like me.

This video of Quattroporte doesn’t come close enough to achieve the incredible sound of the engine. They can make this more powerful depending on the tuning program they will apply.
