Alfa Romeo planning 6C Coupe, will be based on Maserati Alfieri

Article by Andrew Christian, on August 23, 2014

Alfa Romeo has just rolled out the 4C but this model isn’t enough to take on rivals such as the Jaguar F-Type or the Porsche 911. As a result, the Italian company owned by Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles is working on a more potent model rumored to be called 6C.

What’s more interesting is that the upcoming vehicle will be based on the Maserati Alfieri Concept that was unveiled earlier this year at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

Maserati already announced in its 5-year business plan that it will produce the Alfieri Concept and will be introduced in 2016. The Alfa Romeo 6C will follow in 2017 featuring the well-known shield-shaped front grille and stylish LED headlights.

Under the hood, the 6C will feature the Maserati Ghibli’s 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that will deliver between 480 hp to 520 hp.

Maserati Alfieri will be available in both coupe and cabriolet versions and will use a V6 engine rated at 410 hp but also a more powerful V8 powerplant which will deliver 450 hp or 520 hp.

Just like the 4C and 8C, Alfa Romeo will not see big production numbers but still, everything is linked to the demand.
