Maserati to revamp its Modena plant for Alfieri?
Maserati announced that their Modena plant, which makes the GranTurismo and the GranCabrio will be revamped to prepare for a new model. There are no hints from the manufacturer on when the next generation GranTurismo and the GranCabrio will debut. This makes us think that the high performance sports car, to be made here, could be the Maserati Alfieri. This F-Type competitor could break cover in 2020. However, the plans to upgrade the current production line will begin by the end of 2019.
The Alfieri was showcased at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show, the concept car had a 4.7L V8 engine, borrowed from the GranTurismo and was tuned to produce 466PS, but that was five years ago. It was announced that the upcoming sports car will be built on an aluminium space frame and will be offered with a V6 engine in three different states of tune - 415PS, 456PS, and 527PS, powertrain sourced from Ferrari. Although, a statement from the manufacturer states that the new sports car will be offered with a plug-in hybrid system.
