Maserati engineers have toned down a notch the camouflage on their latest Quattroporte prototype that was nabbed by our scoop photographers while undergoing tests at the Nürburgring race track.
It may not seem like a lot, but it's enough to provide us with a better look at the rear window styling, which in previous spy shots, was disguised to give the impression of a fastback body style.
This new Quattroporte will be the Fiat and Chrysler Alliance's flagship sedan model and as such, will sport the latest technologies including a new 8-speed automatic transmission from ZF combined with a start and stop system to will help reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
As recently reported after we saw a turbocharged prototype of the Ferrari California testing at the brand's private track in Italy, the new Maserati model is believed to be offered with two new force-fed gasoline engines.
Car&Driver magazine reports that the engine lineup will include a range-topping turbocharged V8 with 520-horses and an entry-level supercharged V6 rated at around 420-horsepower, both of which are being developed by engineers at Ferrari.
From what we have heard, there's a strong possibility that the next Quattroporte will debut at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show next January before it goes on sale worldwide later in the year.
