Supercar fans were sent into the depths of despair when it was announced that the Maserati GranTurismo coupe and GranCabrio convertible would cease production by the end of this year, but now they have reasons to rejoice. Maserati has confirmed replacements for the cars, with the leader of the pack being the Alfieri.
The Alfieri first debuted as a concept car back in 2014. The car will go into production and will likely make its debut sometime around next year’s Geneva motor show. There will be two variations—a full-electric and a plug-in hybridized turbo V6.
The cars will be produced at the Modena plant, which, moving forward, “will be dedicated to the manufacturing of special high performance, high technology cars, in line with the tradition and values of the Brand, which has been present in Modena since 1939. The plan is to upgrade and renew the current production lines starting this Autumn,” stated Maserati in an announcement.
Built on a fully-electric platform, the Alfieri will feature an all-aluminum spaceframe. According to Maserati, it will also feature a 0 to 100km/h in the two-second range thanks to its three-motor all-wheel drive system with full active torque vectoring. It will also have 800V battery tech and active aerodynamics. The Alfieri will be available as either a coupe or a convertible.
