The Alfieri is based on Maserati's GranTurismo MC Stradale, although the concept sits on a wheelbase which is 240mm shorter (2700mm).
The concept measures 4590mm long, 1930mm wide and 1280mm tall, weighing in at 1380kg and resting on 20-inch wheels at the front, and 21-inch at the rear.
Power comes from a 4.7 litre naturally-aspirated V8 producing 343kW and 520Nm, fed to the ground via a six-speed ‘MC Shift’ transmission and a limited-slip differential.
A carbon ceramic brake package on the Alfieri is shared with the GranTurismo MC Stradale, while blue Brembo brake callipers are also fitted.
The interior features a 2+2 seating arrangement, as the name suggests, along with leather upholstery and copper and aluminium highlights.
The Alfieri’s appearance marks an ultra-exotic step forward from the only recently launched Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans, borrowing from the brand’s rich history while also previewing a bold future look.
“The Alfieri is a transition point between 100 glorious years of history and the future that is opening up before us,” Chief Designer, Lorenzo Ramaciotti, said.
“I can’t honestly say that we’ll see this car in production in the next two years, but I’m certain we’ll see something very similar.”
The Alfieri name refers to two of the seven Maserati brothers, with a younger brother carrying the same name as his deceased sibling, who passed away early in life.
We can likely expect the Maserati Alfieri 2+2 Concept to preview a replacement for the ageing GranTurismo coupe, but the ‘when, where and how’ of it all is yet to be revealed.
