The style, engine, suspensions, brakes, handling and performance will all be recognisable as maserati and will be in line with the brand's core values of sportiness, style, elegance, luxury, performance and craftsmanship.
New Maserati proprietary engines will be design in Modena by Paolo Martinelli – Head of the Maserati Powertrain Department and for nearly 30 years at Ferrari, where he also served as engine chief of the Formula One racing team – and will be produced in Maranello by Ferrari.
The Maserati Kubang will feature an AT 8 speed automatic transmission, alongside specifically developed settings for suspensions, brakes and steering by the Maserati Product Development Department.
Maserati has only produced saloons, coupes and two- or four-seater convertibles until today, with two common denominators; sportiness and luxury, which will be carried over to the Maserati Kubang with a dynamic form and high performing sport luxury SUV.Published 16 September 2011
