Maserati could begin production of the Alfieri coupe within two years

Article by Christian A., on March 6, 2014

Maserati made quite a buzz with the Alfieri Concept at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and it appears that things are going to be very interesting for the Italian company owned by Fiat-Chrysler. According to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne the Alfieri platforms and engines are already available and technically, the production could start in 24-48 months!

"The only thing I can tell you is that it's a beautiful machine," added Marchionne. The official press release said that the Alfieri Concept was designed to show us the upcoming Maseratis.

We also expect the next Granturismo to take lots of styling cues from it. But still, Fiat design chief Lorenzo Ramaciotti wanted to underline what Marchionne said. "We stuck close to reality with this concept," said Ramaciotti. "It's 85 to 90 percent feasible (that we will build it). There's a lead time of 24 months."

Under the hood, the Alfieri Concept carries a 4.7-liter V8 engine built at Ferrari’s Maranello factory. Moreover, the Maserati brand chief Harald Wester said that the Alfieri could be built in Grugliasco, near Turin. Same place where the Maserati Ghibli and the Quattroporte are currently built.

Still, nothing is official and for now, the Maserati Alfieri remains just a concept car that made us drool ever since we saw it!
