2017 Maserati Alfieri
The 2017 Maserati Alfieri will be a 2+2 coupe that’s smaller, sharper, and less expensive than the brand’s GranTurismo. While the Alfieri will play a bit part in the sales figures relative to Maserati’s upcoming Levante SUV, the coupe has a key role in plotting the brand’s direction as it carves out a niche between Alfa Romeo and Ferrari in the $70,000-to-$150,000 range.
Under the hood, this car will be powered by 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine which can generate up to 410 horsepower but will also have an option to upgrade to 450, while the top performer may require a displacement bump to accommodate its rumored 520 horsepower.
Only the 410-hp engine is expected to drive the rear wheels; more-powerful models will come standard with four-wheel drive. All the variants will be paired with eight-speed automatic transmission.
