Automotive publications have shared photos from the tests of the updated luxury Italian car Maserati Quattroporte sedan. The prototype of the novelty received a rather slight disguise. According to rumors, the main changes will be associated with the motor range of the car, as well as with its interior.

The Italian company Maserati continues to test prototypes of the updated Quattroporte sedan. This time, journalists came across a test sample of the model, which received a barely noticeable disguise. In fact, the disguise hides little.

The updated Quattroporte received a different front end. The headlamps now have LED daytime running lights on the top edges and clear sections on the sides. The pillars in the false radiator grille have become thicker, and the air intakes in the front bumper are slightly larger.

The changes to the rear of the Italian sedan are even smaller. The taillights are slightly modified in appearance and there may be minor changes to the camouflaged bumper as well.

According to our sources, an updated infotainment system with a large screen may appear in the cabin of the novelty. A fully digital dashboard can also be expected.

Maserati plans to unveil the high-performance Quattroporte Trofeo on August 10, in addition to similar versions of the Levante crossover and Ghibli sedan. All of these cars reportedly use a new 4.0-liter V8 that can develop around 590 horsepower. For these model versions, the automaker’s engineers also upgraded the suspension and brakes to cope with the extra power.

It’s also possible the new Quattroporte could get a mild hybrid powertrain from the recently updated Ghibli model. The new development consists of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a 48-volt generator, as well as a battery pack. The total power will be equal to 330 horsepower (450 Nm).
