Maserati is planning on putting the impressive Alfieri concept into production as the model in question will be assembled in two body styles, Coupe and Cabrio.
One of the hottest concept cars signed by Maserati over these past few years is named the Alfieri and it was first seen back in March, during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. But despite its appealing and futuristic design, the model in question will be put into production, in two body styles, as the inautonews.com team has found out.
“Sergio Marchionne announced in the product plans after the May 6th Investor Day address that both an Alfieri Coupe and Convertible will be produced beginning in 2016”, said a company official when contacted by us.
The new Maserati Alfieri will probably be toned down for the production version, but not too much, considering the fact that it has a lot of Italian heritage. The model will become a rival for vehicles such as the upcoming Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, the Jaguar F-Type or the Porsche 911. The concept version was using the same chassis of the GranTurismo MC Stradale, shortened by 240 mm, and it packed the 3.0 liter V6 engine under its hood, from the Quattroporte and Ghibli, producing 330 HP (243 kW) and 410 HP (310 kW). It remains unknown whether the production variant will come with the same technical “bits and pieces”.
