While it was in development, Maserati rolled out its 2014 Quattroporte for a little testing, but rather than slather the big luxury sedan in gobs of camouflage to protect from it prying eyes, engineers used the cover of darkness to conceal the vehicle's design. Then they made a video about their cleverness and posted it on the Internet. The team spent some time whipping around the Balocco Proving Ground with chief test driver Fabrizio Galvan at the controls to evaluate the sedan's new drivetrain, noise levels and handling in the real world.

We got our hands on the 2014 Quattroporte last month for a first drive ahead of the vehicle's North American debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. You can read our impressions here, but first, take a look at the video below for a new glimpse at the machine's development.

      Saw this "scoop" on number of websites. The test must've been like a Disneyland Night Parade.

      Those taillights now look dangerously generic. The actually look great, wonderful proportion with the whole rear end, but the shape is almost Audi, even Avalon.

        What you see is a hazy video. The impression in the flesh is altogether different.
