Start Dreaming About the New Maserati Alfieri with 106 Photos of the Concept

No one can blame us for being skeptical about some of the product announcements made today at Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles’ HQ, but in the case of Maserati, we’re less wary simply because the Trident brand has actually delivered in the past couple of years, and even offered a conceptualized vision of the cars it wants to make – such as the beautiful Alfieri Coupe.

Originally, at the sport coupe’s world premiere at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March, Maserati said the concept “hints at the brand’s stylistic intentions for the near future”, but today, it confirmed a production version of the coupe for 2016 followed by a convertible the next year.

Since it’s no longer a flight of fantasy but a production-intent concept, what a better way to celebrate the news than with a multitude of photos, right?

The Alfieri will sit under the GranTurismo series, itself to be replaced by a new model in 2018. According to Maserati, the Alfieri series will be offered with a choice of three powertrains, including a base rear-wheel drive model fitted with a 410PS (404hp) turbocharged V6, and two all-wheel drive versions, also featuring a turbo’d V6, but with outputs of 450PS (444hp) and 520PS (513hp) respectively.

Possible opponents of the Alfieri include the Porsche 911, Jaguar F-Type and depending on the price, perhaps even certain versions of Chevrolet’s Corvette Stingray (notice any similarities in the tail?).
