Curvaceous and sensual, the Maserati Alfieri made a dashing debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Maserati’s Alfieri concept, unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show, is a 2+2 coupe with a 4.7L V8 engine producing 460 horsepower, as well as 20” front and 21” rear wheels. The company claims it’s more aggressive than the Gran Turismo.
“The Alfieri is a transition point between 100 glorious years of history and the future that is opening up before us,” said design director Lorenzo Ramaciotti. “I sincerely can’t say that we’ll see this car in production in two years time, but I’m certain we’ll see something very similar.”
The floor of the Maserati Alfieri concept is finished in a material that imitates oxidized steel, which was commonly found on race cars in the 1950s. Poltrona Frau aniline leather covers the seats, dashboard, and centre console.
Yet if it looks anything like this concept car, Maserati is going to have to fight back a hoard of well-heeled car buyers.
Once the car reaches production – and our guess is that this will happen within 12-24 months – we expect the price to remain around the same $126,000 you’d pay for the 2014 GranTurismo coupe.
