Rumours of a Chrysler-driven Maserati are picking up steam this week. Reports out of the US are pointing to a twin-turbo version of Chrysler's Pentastar V6 powering the next-generation Quattroporte sedan.
According to US publication Inside Line, the uprated engine would replace the Quattroporte's Ferrari-supplied V8 engines - and possibly also in the GranTurismo supercoupe.
This follows reports last month that Maserati's new sub-Quattroporte entry-level sedan will utilise a version of Chrysler's new family engine, while also borrowing the 300C's large rear-wheel-drive platform.
Power figures for the rumoured Quattroporte twin-turbo Pentastar V6 were not offered, but earlier reports suggest the entry-level sedan will a 300kW turbocharged version of the Chrysler-sourced V6.
Little else is known about the two new Maserati cars at this stage, but with a late-2011 debut rumoured for the new Quattroporte, more details should be revealed in the coming months.
