2016 Maserati Alfieri will be identical to the concept version

Article by Christian A., on June 22, 2014

Back in March, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Maserati introduced the Alfieri Concept, a vehicle that celebrated company’s 100th anniversary and said much about the design DNA of future Maseratis. Due to the positive feedback, the Italian manufacturer owned by Fiat decided to build the Alfieri Concept and officially announced in its 5-year business plan the production version will arrive in 2016.

During an interview with the global design for parent company, Fiat, Lorenzo Ramaciotti told PistonHeads that the final version of the vehicle will look just like the concept car. “It will be impossible to see the difference”, Ramaciotti said.

We already know that the Maserati Alfieri will be offered exclusively with a V6 engine. The entry-level version will deliver 350 hp, but don’t worry, because Maserati will also offer a version delivering 450 hp, while the most powerful version will offer 520 hp.

A year later, Maserati will roll out the Alfieri Cabrio. Power will be delivered to the rear wheels on the lowered power version, while the 450 hp and 520 hp version will offer four-wheel drive options.

Ramaciotti also said that the Alfieri is not a replacement for the GranTurismo as the latter is a GT, while the Alfieri is a sports car.

The Alfieri is a 2+2, just like the GranTurismo, but it will not offer the same interior space seen on the 911 or Audi TT. As a result, it will be priced below the GranTurismo, somewhere at $110,000 or 81,000 euros. [source: PistonHeads]
