Having outlived its original life-expectancy, the Maserati Quattroporte will be all new when it bows in production form, likely at this September’s Paris Auto Show. 

Spy photos have already been taken of the car while testing, but this newest batch show off more design elements than those previously seen. Sporting a little less camo-cladding on its rear end, we can see quad-tailpipes as well as confirm that the back of the car will follow conventional styling, and not incorporate an Audi A7 style sport-back which it previously looked like it would.

The car will have a Ferrari-built turbo V8 that makes 520 hp under the hood initially, followed by a supercharged V6 engine making 420 hp later on in the year, also developed by Ferrari. Both engine variants will come mated to an eight-speed ZF transmission.

Size-wise, the Quattroporte will grow, making room for the Maserati Levante, a smaller sports sedan that is aiming at the $75,000 price point.
