One of the most beautiful cars ever designed by Maserati is without any doubt the Alfieri concept which was showcased a few days ago at this year’s edition of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. The concept draws its styling cues from the firm’s A6 GCS/54 and was developed to celebrate the company’s 100th anniversary. Motivation is provided by a 4.7-liter V8 engine delivering 466 PS and a maximum torque of 520 Nm. A production version with a V6 engine has already been confirmed and will be out in the second half of the decade along with a cabriolet version.

Italian marque Maserati has recently released a video in which they explain the styling of the Alfieri concept that was unveiled earlier this month at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. This is basically a gorgeous 2+2 coupe which comes with a powerful naturally aspirated V8 4.7-liter engine outputting 460 bhp and a maximum torque of 383 lb-ft. It’s actually based on the GranTurismo MC Stradale but the wheelbase has been shortened by 24cm so it could indicate Maserati is preparing a new entry-level model. The engine works together with a six-speed transmission and a limited-slip differential while the power is sent to the rear axle.
