    Maserati Quattroport getting twin turbo V6 and V8 for 2014

    Much closer to the competition now and you can certainly modify things with boost to push it further:

    As we wait for the Detroit Auto Show to get our up-close and in-depth look at the redesigned 2014 Maserati Quattroporte, some details are just starting to emerge about the car's powertrain, but nothing is official just yet. Autocar has posted a first drive of the new Quattroporte, finally spilling the beans about what motivates this sporty and luxurious sedan.

    We already knew that the 2014 Quattroporte will offer two engines – a V6 and V8 – but what we didn't know is that both engines will get a pair of turbochargers and direct injection. Previously, we speculated that the smaller V6 would be supercharged, but this 3.0-liter V6 will get turbos instead helping it produce an estimated 410 horsepower. As for the larger 3.8-liter V8, this engine is said to produce 530 horsepower (confirming our previous report) to go with 479 pound-feet of torque; performance specs for the V8 include a top speed of 191 miles per hour and a 0-60 mph time of well under five seconds.

    All cars will have a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive will be optional allowing for all of the engine power sent to the rear wheel during normal driving and a full 50/50 split between front and rear axles when needed. As we suspected, the 2014 Quattroporte has grown in size to better compete with theMercedes-Benz S-Class.

    New Maserati Quattroporte

    I think it became too big. I should see it in real life to judge, but it also looks less exciting. Still a beautiful car, with a great interior and much improved drivetrains. Two Ferrari built TT DI engines. One is a 3.8 V8 with 530hp, the other a 3.0 V6 with 410hp.
    This or Jaguar XJ?

    The back of the car looks Audi-ish, but I'm sure the engine is gonna sound awesome since Maserati usually gets detuned Ferrari pieces

    Yes but these are not high revving NA motors any longer but turbo ones.

    I hope the Gran Turismo gets these motors.

    The fron reminds me of CLS. the body and shift lever remind me of the 7 series for some reason and the back, as mentioned before, reminds me of Audi.

    Not exciting as the Tipo F136 under the hood of previous gen, but still sounds great.
