The brand new 2014 Maserati Alfieri Concept has actually simply been released at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show 2014. Made to commemorate the Italian marque’s 100th anniversary, the Alfieri points towards an interesting future for Maserati. We were on hand to snap live images of it. Looking like its targeted straight at Jaguar’s F-Type, the Alfieri Concept is called after Alfieri Maserati, among the starting Maserati siblings. The Alfieri is an amazing but reasonable and 100 % functional prototype that says considerably concerning the layout DNA of future Maseratis; it could well be a door to the future of the Trident Marque.
Styling – Interior & Exterior
Anyone else think the Maserati Alfieri owes the Jaguar F-type Coupe a paternal test? That raked rear screen, and the way in which it streams into the squat rear haunches: really Ian Callum. Really F-type, puts simply. Still, you could never ever have as well many quite vehicles while driving …
The Alfieri principle vehicle is made from carbonfibre, yet Maserati insiders verify that the production autos it will spawn (read: following GranTurismo, GranCabrio and so on) will be aluminium bodied, with some composite panels to adapt the weight-saving zeitgeist. Likewise featured on the principle automobile are carbon-ceramic brakes right from the hardcore GranTurismo MC Stradale.
An in-house design team has been left with the Alfieri job, not Pininfarina. They were seemingly motivated by the classic Maserati A6 GCS-53, and signs like the cab-back position and overstated chapeau length have actually been rollovered into the Geneva principle automobile.
Take the all-aluminium tires: they determine 20in in advance, and 21in on the back, yet their ornamental layouts are encouraged by wire-spoke wheels from the 1950s. A modern style with retro garnish– that’s the crux of the Alfieri principle.
Underneath, the idea auto sits on a GranTurimso MC Stradale framework that’s had a monstrous 240mm chopped out of the wheelbase. It should be nimble then– and that indicate an entire brand-new period for sporting Maseratis. Visit this site for CAR’s total scoop on those next-gen Masers.
Inside the Alfieri
It’s less production-ready than the outside, which truthfully looks like a good-to-go Ghibli coupe. Inside the 2 +2 Alfieri, Maserati has actually opted for minimalist modernism: it takes the button-free technique of the Ghibli to extremes, in the very best concept vehicle custom.
The instrument panel utilizes TFT displays rather than analog dials. The numbers revolve around the dials as opposed to a needle, with a magnifying-glass effect drawing attention to the current rate and RPM. The monitors go with a bigger display in the vehicle’s dashboard.
Solitary aluminium lightweight billets have actually been milled to create the equipment selector and trademark oval clock, and the pedals, gearshift paddles and guiding tire’s spokes are also aluminium. On the other hand, the container front seats are motivated by 1950s auto racing bucket chairs. There’s one function we hope remains resolutely a principle car prosper …
The Alfieri is based upon the GranTurismo MC Stradale framework with a 24 centimetre much shorter wheelbase, providing it the percentages of an authentic supercar. Alfieri is 4,590 mm long with a 2,700 mm wheelbase, 1,930 mm broad and 1,280 mm superior.
Engine of 2014 Maserati Alfieri Concept
Under the sleek physical body lies the transaxle system of the Maserati GranTurismo. This 4.7 litre, naturally aspirated, V8 engine from Maranello establishes 460bhp at 7,000 revoltions per minute and 520Nm at 4,750 rpm and gives the Alfieria actual driving pressure. Many thanks to an unique exhaust design, this pedigreed V8 likewise produces a breath-taking noise.
A six-speed, electro-actuated gearbox (MC Shift) is positioned in a single system with the minimal slip back differential and linked to the engine via a rigid torque tube. The transaxle layout offers the Alfieri an optimised front-rear weight distribution with a small predominance to the rear axle.
The Alfieri’s carbon ceramic disc brakes come straight from the GranTurismo MC Stradale and are combined with blue Brembo brake callipers.
