when was the last time the Trident marque has excite you with a two-door offering? been a while huh? well, here’s a glimmer of hope for all Maserati fans out there: the Maserati Alfieri Concept Car. like most concepts, the Alfieri Concept Car is designed to grab your attention and apart from the modern iteration of the iconic grille and the branding, there’s really nothing much that hints of it as a Maserati, which is good, if you ask us. the Alfieri is a 2+2 concept car which the Italian luxe automaker describes as “an exciting but realistic and 100% functional prototype that says much about the design DNA of future Maseratis” and also as a reminder of Maserati rich racing heritage.
based on the GranTurismo MC Stadale, this beautiful prototype is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 unit producing 460 horses and 383 lb-ft (520 Nm) of torque, which is mated to a six-speed, electro-actuated gearbox with integrated limited slip rear differential and has carbon ceramic disc brakes with blue Brembo brake calipers for stopping power. the car drew its inspiration from the classic 1954 A6 GCS-53, sporting a body styling faithful to the classic with stretched hood set and fast back, but of course with modern touches like more sculpted and flowing lines, LED daytime running lights, bi-xenon LED lamps, “three dimensional” tail lights, rear diffuser, carbon fiber inserts, restyled triple air ducts on the wheel arches, and a modern spin of the classic spoke wheels of 50s in the form of massive 21-inch and 20-inch forged aluminum wheels (rear and front, respectively).
the concept also stands out as one with an ultra-minimalist interior, featuring a “suspended” dashboard, a central TFT display, dual-binnacle dial instrument panel, Aniline leather wrapped interior, and the customary oval clock. it is a concept which Maserati is proudly showing off at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show and being a concept, there is no telling of its future, but we have high hopes because, there are a lot of details given for a concept which makes it a plausible production ride.
