October 20, 2015 – For the 2015 Dubai International Motor Show, taking place from November 10th – 14th, Maserati has announced that it will be exhibiting the Maserati Alfieri, a 2+2 concept car. The Alfieri is hailed as archetypal for the future design DNA of Maserati.
The striking concept bears the name of the most prominent of the Maserati brothers – the engineering genius who founded “Officine Alfieri Maserati” in Bologna over a century ago. According to Lorenzo Ramaciotti, the mastermind behind the project, “The Alfieri is a transition point between 100 glorious years of history and the future that is opening up before us.”
The Alfieri concept is a sleek, Italian style 2+2, which clearly affirms Maserati’s racing DNA. Taking inspiration from one of the most fascinating cars of all time, the Maserati A6 GCS-53 designed by Pininfarina in 1954, the Alfieri’s designers have developed a streamlined, uncluttered form. It is characterized by a long, low nose, the characteristic grille and aggressive headlights as well as the signature triple air ducts on the wheel arches and the Saetta badge on the rear pillar. In the 2+2 seat cabin, the design team created a study in simplicity and minimalism.
In addition to the Alfieri concept car, Maserati has announced also a regional premiere to be unveiled at the Motor Show.
