Arrow 2014 Maserati Quattroporte Patent Drawings - Leaked!

Despite much efforts by the Italian marque to keep the new car under covers, the Maserati Quattroporte patent images has surfaced.

I was a tad worried if they'd mess up one of my all-time favorite performance sedans. Boy have they proved me wrong?!?!

Looks like VW/Audi designer escaped from Germany and sneaked into Italy to design the backside! Overall, its a decent evolution of the original design - an unmistakable Quattroporte.

Took those words right out of my mouth. Frankly even at this conceptual stage, the drawings of the rear are disapproving to me, lacks the typical italian flair that was quite evident in the previous gen-quattroporte's. The rear so looks like it came straight out of Ingolstadt, Germany !

+1 to that. Even from the front perspective barring the trademark Maserati grill, it could easily fit the bill of Merc/BMW/Jag/Volvo. I believe this is the new design language all car makers are evolving to. It would take a while to shift from this.

Right now, this thing just looks like Ghibli with an elongated wheelbase.
