After several images hit the web a few hours ago, Maserati has introduced in Geneva the stunning Alfieri 2+2 concept which hints at a new production model.
Adopting an appealing curvaceous styling approach with elegant lines, the Alfieri 2+2 concept is based on Maserati's GranTurismo MC Stradale but has a 24cm shorter wheelbase which makes us think the company is plotting a new entry-level model. The design of the concept takes its inspiration from classic cars such as the 1957 3500 GT and the 1959 5000 GT. The concept seen here is 4590mm long, 1,930mm wide and 1,280mm tall, with a 2,700mm wheelbase and specially developed 20-inch front / 21-inch rear wheels.
Its heart and soul is a naturally-aspirated V8 4.7-liter engine outputting 460 bhp (343 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) at 4,750 rpm delivered to the road via a six-speed gearbox and a limited-slip differential. Behind the retro-looking alloys are MC Stradale-sourced carbon ceramic disc brakes with blue Brembo brake calipers.
Inside it has a 2+2 arrangement with an open-space cargo area and Aniline leather upholstery also found on the central console and dashboard. The cabin has been beautified with copper highlights while single-piece aluminum billets were used to create the gearbox lever, oval clock and seat profile inserts. The aluminum-made steering wheel spokes, gearbox paddles and pedals have received a palladium hue.
