2014 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Maserati Alfieri Concept image

The 84th edition of the Geneva Motor Show has seen the debut of the so-called Alfieri Concept, signed by Maserati.

The model in question has adopted some curvaceous styling with elegant lines and it’s based on the GranTurismo MC Stradale. The Alfieri Concept has a 24 cm shorter wheelbase which is probably hinting towards a new entry-level sports car, which will most likely hit the market in the nearby future. The design of this one-off vehicle has been inspired from the 3500 GT and 5000 GT from the 1950s, as the company is saying. Its interior design has received the aluminum made steering wheel spokes, gearbox paddles and pedals finished in palladium hue, copper highlights and more.

The Maserati Alfieri has a 2+2 seating and it stands at 4,590 mm in length, 1,930 mm in width and 1,280 mm in height, riding on a 2,700 mm long wheelbase. The concept car stands on 20- / 21-inch wheels, front to rear, and it’s powered by a 4.7 liter V8 engine, which is rated at 460 HP (343 kW), at 7,000 rpm, and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque, available at 4,750 rpm. The unit is mated to a 6-speed transmission and a limited-slip differential. Stopping power is provided by Brembo. More details on the Alfieri Concept are limited for the moment and will probably be announced during a future automotive event.
