This week, at the International Geneva Motor Show, Italian carmaker, Maserati celebrated its 100-year anniversary by releasing its latest 2+2 Alfieri concept sports car

Named after one of the Maserati brothers who founded the company in Bologna 100 years ago, the Alfieri is a sleek, futuristic, Italian-style, four-seater — similar to the 1957 3500 GT. 

The designer of the stunning new car, Lorenzo Ramaciotti, was inspired A6 GCS-53 Pininfarina-designed race car from 1954 — proclaiming its racing DNA — but now with added modern details including, bi-xenon/LED headlamps, 21-inch wheels and a liquid-metal finish called "Steel Flair".

Apart from its impressive bodywork, the car is based on the GranTurismo MC Stradale chassis with a 24 centimetre shorter wheelbase, the 4.7-litre V8 engine from Maranello carries 460 horsepower through a six-speed sequential gearbox.

Commenting on the design Ramaciotti said, “The Alfieri is a transition point between 100 glorious years of history and the future that is opening up before us. I can’t honestly say that we’ll see this car in production in the next two years, but I’m certain we’ll see something very similar.”
