2013 Maserati Quattroporte

Debuts in Detroit

When Maserati introduced the redesigned Quattroporte, they were relatively quiet about specifications. Thankfully, a new report is shedding some light on the model's engine lineup.

Auto Edizione says the car will be offered with two new engines that have aluminum construction, direct injection and twin turbochargers. The entry-level unit will reportedly displace 3.0-liters and have an output of 410 bhp (306 kW). It will be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission that should enable the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in five seconds, before hitting a top speed of 285 km/h (177 mph). With the optional all-wheel drive system, the Quattroporte will run to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and top out at 284 km/h (176 mph).

The Quattroporte will also offer a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that develops 530 bhp (395 kW). It will reportedly enable the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 307 km/h (191 mph).

The Maserati Quattroporte will be officially unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January, so expect to learn more in the coming weeks.
