Maserati unveiled the Alfieri, a 2+2 concept car, to celebrate the brand’s centenary at the Geneva Palexpo today. It is a functional prototype.
The new concept bears the name of Alfieri, the most prominent of the Maserati brothers, who founded “Officine Alfieri Maserati” in Bologna a century ago.
The Alfieri was created at the Maserati Centro Stile in Turin by a small group of young designers led by Marco Tencone. The project was masterminded by Lorenzo Ramaciotti.

In this, its 100th year, the Italian manufacturer is positioning itself in the premium sports car segment.
Today Maserati is a global automotive player with a complete model range made up of two four-door saloons, two GT sports cars, four engines (a V8, a V6 Twin Turbo, a V8 NA and a turbo Diesel), and two different architectures (AWD & RWD). And there’s an SUV coming soon, says the company.
