Video: Maserati Alfieri Sounds Amazing
It’s been about two months since the Maserati Alfieri made its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show, but we have yet to see it on the move or revving its V-8 engine. Fortunately that comes to an end today thanks to supercar spotter Marchettino, who caught the Italian beast on tape at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.
Besides sitting pretty and winning the Concept Cars category of the show, the Maserati Alfieri also made an impact by flexing its V-8 muscles around Villa d’Este. And while there’s no denying that each Maserati sounds awesome in its own way, we have to admit that the Alfieri tops the entire lineup.
Sure, we haven’t forgotten that this concept car is motivated by the same mill found in the GranTurismo MC Stradale, but the Alfieri’s sexy looks somehow manage to add more drama to that exhaust note.
If you’re as excited as we are, then we must tone things down a bit by reminding you that the said 4.7-liter V-8 engine won’t be used in the production version. According to Maserati’s five-year plan, both the coupe and roadster will come alive with V-6 units under hood, with outputs ranging from 410 to 520 horsepower.
It remains to be seen whether the production Alfieri will sound as sexy as the concept car or not. We’ll probably find out in 2016, when the coupe is scheduled to arrive in showrooms.
