MASERATI has announced that it has put into production its stunning Alfieri 2+2 concept car.
Named after Alfieri Maserati it is to mark the car maker’s centennial. The Italian manufacturer was set up in December 1914.
The car “explores the stylistic heritage of the brand and anticipates future design trends,” says Maserati.
A sleek, Italian style 2+2, today’s Alfieri is still at the concept stage, but that will change soon, announced the car makers. The Alfieri production car should be driven out of showrooms sometime in 2016 or 2017, and is expected to be powered by either a V6 or V8 turbo engine.
Maserati CEO Harald Westersaid: “It is the year of the Alfieri, an amazing concept car built to mark the Centennial, named after our founder.
“It is the year in which customers and fans celebrate our glorious past, enjoy a present in which the product range is wider than ever, and look eagerly forward to the launch of the Maserati SUV, to be followed by the Alfieri, as the concept car goes into production.
The concept interprets Maserati’s most iconic signatures: restyled triple air ducts on the wheel arches; the trident emblem in a central position on the front grille; the Saetta logo on the rear pillar; and forged wheels whose spoke design gives a nod to the trident profile.
