New sports car is coming from Maserati. This new car model in question is Maserati Alfieri concept. This two door car made its debut at 2014 Geneva Motor Show where it attracted a lot of attention. This car is one of the rare models that haven’t suffered significant changes from the concept to the model that will be produced. This car will be produced with just slight changes from the concept that was unveiled in 2014. So there is no worry that the car which attracted a lot of attention will be different in any way. Small changes include driver comfort and better ergonomics but that did not change the basic concept. When designers designed this car, they had role model in 1954 A6GCS/54 Maserati.
