The beautiful Maserati Alfieri concept has been showcased two years ago and the public’s very positive reaction prompted the brand to confirm its intention to reveal a production series version in the near future.
The model should have come to the markets a little while after the Levante was introduced but according to the latest report the company strategy has been shifted towards other models. Apparently – as tipped by Alfa Romeo and Maserati chief Harald Wester – the automaker will instead turn its full attention towards bringing to life new generations of the GranTurismo and GranCabrio ranges. The manager was of course coy on providing specific details other than Maserati’s five year plan which already revealed these models will be positioned above the Alfieri and use a new V8 engine set to bring to life more than 560 horsepower.
When asked to confirm if the Alfieri remained on the schedule, Wester said “I don’t know. I need to talk to my people.” He also added “I think we talk too much about the future. Nobody else does, so I confirm what we said, that’s it.” Such ambiguous statements will for sure bring many sleepless nights to fans of the Italian producer but we know for sure that – if greenlit – the Alfieri will be declined both as a coupe and convertible with rear- or all-wheel drive. The model will be packing a V6 engine that will have different power levels in between 410 and 520 hp.
