Maserati Alfieri Concept, which is a 2+2 concept car, has been designed to mark the centenary of the brand. The name Alfieri is in purpose of commemorating the most prominent of the Maserati brothers. The car has been designed in Centro Stile in Turin by the Head of the Centro Stile, Lorenzo Ramaciotti and has been spearheaded by Marco Tencone. He was present during the event to receive the Car Designs of the Year award on behalf of the brand Maserati.

The Editor of Car Design News, Owen Ready said, “The design of sports cars with fine volumes and beautiful proportions is something Italian car design has long excelled at, but the Alfieri’s more contemporary design elements have been executed with impeccable judgement. The result is a classic Italian sports car which is utterly modern.”
