Maserati Quattroporte gets a facelift for the 2017MY

Novitec Tridente upgrades the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte

Maserati Quattroporte is already a powerful sedan but Novitec Tridente decided to make it even more powerful and faster. As a result, the Italian tuning company released three upgrades for each model of the Quattroporte. The least powerful models of the Quattroporte are those using the 3.0-liter diesel engine but things will change as Novitec Tridente tuned from 275 hp and 600 Nm of torque to an impressive 322 hp and 680 Nm of torque.

With these numbers, the sedan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.7 seconds. Also the detuned version of the 3.0-liter diesel engine that delivers 250 hp and 600 Nm as standard, was upgraded to 301 hp and 680 Nm. This model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.2 seconds.

The 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine found on the Maserati Quattroporte S was boosted from 410 hp and 550 Nm of torque to 476 hp and 640 Nm of torque. The upgraded engine pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds.

Orders for Maserati’s vehicles are seen to increase to 40,000 cars this year, more than double the figure in 2013, the sources said.

To accommodate the increase, Maserati plans to add two shifts every Saturday at the site and cut summer breaks from three weeks to just two in August, according to Vincenzo Aragona, an official with Italy’s Fismic union.

Fiat is also planning to transfer around 350 employees from its Mirafiori site in Turin to the Maserati plant. Fiat and union leaders are set to discuss the plans this week, according to the Fismic and Fim unions.

Prepare to be blown away by the unique new color scheme, materials and finish of the Maserati Quattroporte Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition Concept car that was presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The car is meant to be developed into a production version in 2014 and will possess the same personality and quality of the present Quattroporte family.

Two closely linked companies cooperated to build Ermenegildo Zegna's concept for the Maserati Quattroporte limited edition. The concept car’s exterior features a special effect paint finish that uses ultra-fine aluminium pigments to simulate the fluidity and purity of metal. A sensation of depth is created from the use of a gloss black primer that magnifies the brilliance of the aluminium pigments.

The car's classic but technically advanced character is expressed by the nuances of its platinum metal colour effect finish. The concept car is believed to be a play between the classical and the contemporary. Its interior is even more awe-inspiring.

The Maserati brand received around 17,000 orders around the world in the first seven months of 2013 -- nearly triple the number of vehicles it sold in 2012 – thanks to introduction of new models. According to Maserati brand chief executive Harald Wester, their best-selling offering in the period was the Quattroporte sedan, which has a price of around EUR110,000 ($147,300). Fiat plans for Maserati to sell more units in order to succeed in its latest strategy to return to profit in 2016 in Europe.

Wester remarked that while United States is still Maserati’s largest market globally, China has become a leading market for certain models such as the Quattroporte. Maserati made a EUR1.2-billion investment in new models to boost sales.

Maserati rolled out the Quattroporte in January 2013. The entry-level Ghibli sedan, which carries a starting price of EUR66,000, also helped Maserati post strong orders in the first seven months of 2013. Maserati will roll out the Ghibli in September.

A three-year deal has recently been entered between Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne and Ermenegildo Zegna Group CEO Gildo Zegna. This long-term deal brings together two companies that are both known for offering excellent Italian design and manufacturing globally. The first project that they’ll be working on is a Limited Edition of the new Maserati Quattroporte by Ermenegildo Zegna – to commemorate the Maserati Centennial in 2014.

The Maserati flagship takes inspiration from the collections of a foremost fashion Group in men’s global luxury. This new reinterpretation will be personalized with new colours, materials and trims.

Specifically, the famous Lanificio Zegna wool mill in Trivero, Italy, will produce the fabrics. In addition, buyers of any of the Maserati models in 2015 can choose from an entire lineup of new optional trims by Zegna.

Fiat SpA will introduce a newly redesigned Maserati Quattroporte sedan at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. This vehicle is expected to make the zero to 60mph sprint in less than 5 seconds. Fiat, the parent of now-profitable Chrysler, said that this vehicle is "Imported from Italy." The Quattroporte is comparable to the Chrysler sedan that Eminem had famously campaigned for.

The revival of Chrysler had benefited factory workers in the U.S. but this year, it will be the turn of the workers at Fiat’s Italian factories. Fiat is relying on the Turin-built Maseratis to widen the brand’s U.S. market share.

To achieve bigger volumes, Maserati has to entice consumers away from German and British luxury automakers. This presents quite a challenge since the brand hasn’t been heard about much in the past few years.

Maserati will be unveiling its new Quattroporte flagship vehicle on January 14, 2013 at the Detroit Auto Show. During a press launch for the sixth-generation Quattroporte, Maserati chief executive Harald Wester said that the flagship model has "nothing to envy" when put up against German premium rivals like the Mercedes-Benz S class or BMW 7 series.

He remarked that they are now “a true and strong alternative to everything out there." Maserati will roll out the Quattroporte in Europe in February 2013, in Asia in March 2013, and in the United States in May or June 2013.

Maserati completely re-engineered the Quattroporte, the pioneer model of the carmaker for its bid to increase its global sales eightfold by 2015. Maserati lengthened the sixth-generation Quattroporte by around 200mm to 5263mm to better compete with chauffeur-driven, long-wheelbase versions of German carmakers’ flagships, which have been dominant in the Chinese market.

The new Maserati Quattroporte made its debut in November, but today the Italian manufacturer owned by Fiat revealed the specs of its new flagship sedan. The new Quattroporte will offer a choice of two twin-turbo engines: a 3.8-liter V8 and a 3.0-liter V6.

The V8 engine will be capable to push the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds and to a top speed of 307 km/h (191 mph).

For those who don’t know, the 2013 Quattroporte will be with 20km/h faster than the outgoing Quattroporte Sport GT S and will deliver up to 200Nm more torque as well. The twin turbo V6 engine will be capable to offer a top speed of 285km/h (177 mph). Both engines will use an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Maserati has made its new Quattroporte sedan longer in order to attract customers who traditionally purchase long-wheelbase versions of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz flagships, sources privy to the carmaker told Automotive News Europe. According to the sources, the new Quattroporte sedan will now have a length of 5300mm, longer than the outgoing model by 200mm.

This will make the Quattroporte be as long as its target rivals, including the Audi A8, BMW 7 series and the Mercedes S class, which all measure between 5200mm and 5300mm. Maserati will unveil the Quattroporte luxury sedan at the Detroit auto show in January 2013, before rolling it out for sale in Europe in the spring and in the United States in the summer.

The Quattroporte is considered a vital part of the plan of Fiat chief executive Sergio Marchionne to increase Maserati sales to 50,000 units annually by 2015 from just 6,159 units in 2011. Maserati hopes to sell 12,000 Quattroportes annually, which is more than two times the peak sales posted by the current model in 2007 with 5,088 units delivered.

After 8 years, the new Maserati Quattroporte was finally unveiled today and now the Italian four-door saloon is ready to take on cars such as the Porsche Panamera or the Aston Martin Rapide. Everything that you see in the pictures is completely new: the car features a new front end and a redesigned grille seen also on the Levante/Kubang SUV Concept, a new set of headlights as well as a redesigned front hood.

The side was also updated and now features new design lines that make the 5 meters Maserati more attractive. The rear end is not too attractive, but this is only what we think. Under the hood, we find the traditional V8 engine, which will be produced in the Ferrari factory in Maranello.

Still, expect a more fuel-efficient V6 engine. The interior was also updated and the car received a brand new and sexy steering wheel. No details are available yet, but the car will make its official debut in January at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, so expect to see some numbers at a later date.

A successor to Maserati’s Quattroporte is expected to arrive later this year. The company is also working on a luxury crossover and smaller sedan that’s targeted at premium German competitors. Insiders say that these two new models and the redesigned Quattroporte sedan may eventually boost Maserati's annual sales to around 20,000 units.

In 2010, Maserati sold 5,675 cars during the recession and remained profitable. Maserati posted sales of nearly 8,600 units in 2008, giving us an idea of how ambitious Maserati's goal of 20,000 sales a year is. It’s likely that the M156 (Maserati's replacement for the Quattroporte) will be unveiled at this fall's 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, says Insideline.

This car, which draws from the design language of the current GranTurismo coupe and convertible, was designed in-house. It will still offer an improved and more efficient version of the current 4.7-liter V8, but other engines may be added to the lineup.

At the 2010 Australian International Auto Show, Maserati unveiled the Quattroporte Sport GT S with the MC Sport Line package. As you can see from the photos, the new car received stylistic elements of the MC Sport Line option package, showing better looks but still keeping the character of Maserati luxury sport sedan.

The new Maserati Quattroporte Sport GTS MC Sport Line replaces the wood trim found in the standard version with carbon fiber, found across the dashboard, the front and rear centre console, as well as on the sections of the door panels, the gear knob and around the switchgear.

In addition, the carbon fiber is used around the instrument pack and on the gearchange paddles. Furthermore, the door sills are fitted with carbon fiber trim panels embossed with the MC Sport Line logo. The same logo is stamped into the aluminum brake pedal.

Details are scarce but it has been confirmed that Maserati’s new sub-Quattroporte four-door saloon will be launched in autumn next year. This sports saloon, which has long been anticipated, is the fourth model in the Maserati range that also includes the Granturismo sports car, the Grancabrio open-top GT and the Quattroporte large sports saloon.

This new model is expected to rival the BMW M5, the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG and the Jaguar XFR. The carmaker has yet to provide information about its powertrains and platform; however, insiders say that it would be spun off the Alfa Romeo 166 replacement's platform.

It is believed that the vehicle will feature downsized V6 and V8 engines and an eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox. The new Quattroporte in 2012 will also have these specifications.

It’s not a secret anymore that Maserati is working on the next Quattroporte, but today Fiat design boss Lorenzo Ramaciotti released some details regarding the new car.

According to Ramaciotti, the next-generation Maserati Quattroporte will not get any bigger, despite the fact that the competition is creating bigger cars. “Even though our rivals – such as the new Audi A8 – are getting longer, we have to keep it as a sporty alternative,” said Lorenzo Ramaciotti.

Furthermore, the new Quattroporte will keep its current grille, which is a symbol of Maserati. According to Harald Wester, Maserati’s CEO, the new car will be offered with four-wheel drive, but will also get greener with the help of stop-start technology.

Maserati has plans to give the next generation of the Quattroporte a boost in performance as the current version hasn't been able to manage a top spot in its class.

The existing version has an Italian design that's very enticing but its 4.7 liter naturally aspirated V8 unit delivering 430 hp and 490 Nm of torque couldn't keep up with German rivals coming from M, AMG and Quattro. Maserati plans for its next generation Quattroporte, which is set to arrive in 2014, to offer a lightweight construction and all-wheel-drive.

On the other hand, impatient customers might want to take a look at what Novitec's Maserati dedicated arm, Novitec Tridente, is offering. The tuner gives the current version a complete modification package.
