2014 Alfieri Maserati Underwhelms In Person With Bloated Surfaces and Mildewing Cabin

  Updated 10.11.14 Forgot we have photos of the Alfieri Maserati from the Pebble Beach concepts lawn! The car is not that great in real life. Its nose is by far the best feature. Overall, it looks too stubby and odd around the mid-section, where its wheelbase appears too short to balance its giant bulging real end. Another oddity? The jackasses who were minding the car would not shut its doors and windows. When asked for third time, he slowly dipped down the back glass but wouldn’t latch it for photos. I mean, seriously? I thought he was just a …

SRT Viper vs. Maserati Alfieri – Friends… Or Family? Overlay Transparency Analysis

SRT Viper vs. Maserati Alfieri – Friends… Or Family? Overlay Transparency Analysis A possible Alfieri-Viper connection has been nagging me since the similarities first appeared about a week after the Alfieri debuted in Geneva. Why did (and does) it seem so close to the Viper, without sharing almost anything recognizable — anywhere? Something about the overdrawn features and super-curved surfaces just strikes me as very similar between the two. But am I just speculating wildly (again)? Besides that, the rear ends seem quite familiar – with similar venting below each lamp and even a similar hatchback glass liftgate. But every …

2014 Maserati Alfieri Concept Inside and Out via 82 New High-Res Photos

One thing was missing from the official debut of the Alfieri Maserati at Geneva this Spring: good photos of the car! Better late than never…! Here are 82 super-high-resolution photographs of the Alfieri. For a full run-down and analysis of the concept, cruise over to this full article linked below. That article makes some interesting points about the design, written on the day of its debut. Since then, the Alfieri has made me think “Viper” many times, but without firm evidence to prove a link. Something about the scale and proportions of the Alfieri seem to hint at a possible …

2017 Maserati MC12 ? LaFerrari Aliante Spyder by IED Torino Shows Potential

I love supercars and hypercars almost too much sometimes. I especially love ones that I have never seen or even fathomed before. It is that… “Oh… OH!” moment when you realize something so lovely has never before been seen by your eyes. This idea might be work by students, but the Ferrari Aliante design study is still quite special. In fact, the Turin-based IED student teams are some of the largest feeders to major supercar brands all over the world, but especially within Italy. This car was designed before LaFerrari even had a name, so the LaFerrari homage in the …

SRT Viper Mega Galleries — Nikon DSLR Photos from Autobahn Country Club + New Anodized Carbon and Stryker Green

Ooooh! These are pretty great photos from last Fall. Chrysler has never liked me, and the feeling is very mutual — so probably not many more Viper drives forthcoming any time soon. First impressions from low-speed parking lot stuff? (I was late that morning and missed track briefing.) It felt … pretty amazingly bad after the Corvette Stingray and GT-R. It does look good, however. I always forget that I am … sortof a talented photographer as well. Why Viper stuff today? I have a new theory about a (possible — very unlikely tho) Viper chassis underneath Alfieri Maserati concept, …

Design Analysis – 2014 Alfieri Maserati Concept

Design Analysis – 2014 Alfieri Maserati Concept Only the short-sighted have ever underestimated Maserati. One man named Enzo found the Trident such a threat that he spent more than a few years trying to bury his cross-town rival in the 1960s and 1970s. Over Maserati’s supernaturally-blessed, but tumultuous, 100-year history so far: the Trident has adorned many far-flung concepts and racers that were each at least 20 years ahead of their time. In an era when Ferrari and Lamborghini were bringing key auto design functions back in-house, the wildest cards in Italy frequently found an eager audience with Maserati. It …
