The Italian based automaker Maserati is currently planning to put the recently unveiled Alfieri Concept into production, as a company’s CEO has recently announced.
The brand new Maserati Alfieri Concept might be getting a production version, after being officially introduced at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The announcement hasn’t been issued in a press release but it was hinted by Sergio Marchionne, the Fiat Chrysler CEO, during an interview with Reuters. Marchionne said that the Alfieri Concept hitting the production line is not that difficult, because all the engines and platforms are there, so the process could start in 24 to 28 months.
The Maserati Alfieri Concept has a 2+2 seating and its design has been inspired from the 3500 GT and the 5000 GT, from the 1950s, standing in at 4,590 mm in length, 1,930 mm in width, 1,2800 mm in height and on a 2,700 mm long wheelbase. Power is being provided by a 4.7 liter V8 engine, which is producing a total output of 460 HP (343 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque, available at 4,750 rpm. This is sent to the 20-/21-inch wheels through a 6-speed transmission and a limited slip differential.
