First Look: 2013 Maserati Quattroporte

Official unveiling confirmed for Detroit Auto Show.

by on Nov.06, 2012

The look is familiar but there are plenty of changes on the 2013 Maserati Quattroporte.

One thing you can say about Maserati, the Italian maker is nothing if not ambitious.  After years of struggling to gain ground against more established luxury brands like Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and even Jaguar, it is targeting some absolutely huge growth targets for mid-decade. And to get there, the maker is planning to roll out an assortment of new and updated products that range from an updated Quattroporte sedan to an all-new luxury SUV.

We’ll get a first sense of what’s in store, it turns out, during the upcoming Detroit Auto Show, Maserati today confirming that the next-generation Quattroporte will make its debut at the annual Motor City show.

Stay on Top!

In an advance release that included these first images, the maker suggests the redesign “reinterprets the design features of classic Maseratis in a contemporary design language. Its style was born out of the guiding design principles of Maserati: harmony of shapes, dynamism of lines, Italian elegance.”

New Yorkers may not drive, but they couldn't ignore the appeal when the 2010 Maserati Gran Turismo S Automatic staged its world debut in the Big Apple.

Crowds in New York seem to gather almost anywhere at almost any time. Last week as a run-up to the New York Auto Show, Maserati at 55th and Park Avenue showroom, drew a red carpet group of auto journalista’s inside and jaded New Yorker’s outside for an automotive event.

An automotive event? Yes … but it was a dual event  of Maserati and Ferrari who were not showing at Javits convention center on the lower West Side, probably as a result of  Q1 2009 sales declines of  58% and 29% respectively. First the Maserati Gran Turismo S Automatic.

Available in a variety of colors, including elegant white, the GT-S model, when the silk-like covering was removed by Jeffrey Ehoodin, Maserati’s public relations director, was equally stunning in black.  This is NY, after all, and black is still the fashionista’s only color of choice.
