THE Italian luxury car maker Maserati will launch its all new longer looking and wider body 2013 Quattroporte next month.

According to www.zercustoms.com, the new version's debut will reveal an all new four-door model which translates as more interior space for its passengers and their luggage.

The makers of the 2013 Quattroporte say the newest ride is around 100 kilograms lighter than its predecessor, largely thanks to the use of aluminum in its body and chassis. The new version weighs just under 1,900 kg.

Maserati—originally makers of racing cars—say the new Quattroporte 2013 will be available with a choice between two engines.

"The 2013 Quattroporte V6 can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 285 kilometres per hour," www.zercustoms.com said.

If you're looking for a more powerful luxury saloon, Maserati is offering the 2013 Quattroporte with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine too, www.zercustoms.com said.

"The V8 version of the new Quattroporte (2013) can get from nought to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 307 kilometres per hour," www.zercustoms.com said.
