The Maserati Alfieri is a 2+2 grand tourer concept car by Maserati.
- Text originally from the Maserati Alfieri's Wikipedia page.
The Maserati Alfieri was shown as a concept car at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
It is named after Alfieri Maserati (1887–1932), one of the five Maserati Brothers, and marks the 100 year anniversary of the car maker, which was established 1914 in Bologna. It has been developed at the Centro Stile Maserati in Turin. The chief overall designer was Marco Tencone, while the exterior chief designer was Giovanni Ribotta. The project was managed by Lorenzo Ramaciotti (born 1948), who has been Centro Stile director since 2007 and in 2014 was the head of Fiat-Chrysler Global Design.
The Alfieri uses design elements of the Maserati A6 GCS/54 designed by Pininfarina in 1954. It is based on the chassis of the lighter Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale with a shorter wheelbase of 24 cm, with locking transaxle and Ferrari-derived V8 engine of 4.7 liter 460 hp and 520 Nm at 4750 rpm.
The Alfieri was confirmed for production in 2016 at a Fiat Chrysler event on May 6, 2014 but was delayed to 2020 at the earliest. The predictions were it would receive three V6 engine choices, producing 410 hp (306 kW), 450 hp (336 kW), and 520 hp (388 kW).The latter two versions will only have an all-wheel drive system.
The Alfieri will be joined by a convertible variant in 2021 after the coupe's release. An electric version is planned for 2021 at the earliest.
The Maserati Alfieri was added in the Slipstream Update as a high-end Class C car with the following statistics:
The Alfieri, while having much slower acceleration, can still be a competitor to the Acura NSX (2017) due to its total speed of roughly 350 km/h at 4*. It also possesses good nitro efficiency, but is also plauged with poor overall handling.
Along with the McLaren 570S Spider, the Maserati Alfieri could only be unlocked during the Bugatti Chiron's event. It had a Car Hunt event in late May 2019. Subsequently, it can also be unlocked during its occasional Car Hunt.
The Maserati Alfieri was added in the Fifth Anniversary Update as a high-end Class C car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 1075
- This was changed to 1213 in the Showdown Update.
- MAX rank: 1415 (+340)
- This was changed to 1419 (+206) in the Showdown Update.
- MAX+PRO rank: 1586 (+171)
- This was changed to 1551 (+132) in the Showdown Update.
- Tuning Kit bonus: +60
- This was changed to +70 in the Showdown Update.
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 511
- This was changed to 338 in the Showdown Update.
- Speed Multiplier: 92.91% (removed as of the Showdown Update)
- It is the first Class C vehicle with a speed multiplier below 100.00%.
- Upgrade rank percentages: 10/55/10/25
- Nitro Efficiency: 6/10/14
The Alfieri has a maximum total speed of 266.6 mph/429.3 km/h at MAX+PRO with Tuning Kit, making it the fastest Class C car, faster than the Sbarro Sparta with 266.1 mph/428.6 km/h. As a departure from previous top-ranking Class C cars, the Alfieri is heavily biased towards raw top speed, all while still having acceleration and nitro efficiency as its strong points.
The Alfieri has a considerably wider drift radius than its closest competitor, the Sbarro Sparta; on non-technical tracks, the Alfieri makes up for this deficiency with its much higher raw top speed, faster acceleration, and slightly lower nitro consumption speed at Level 3 nitro. On tracks like Dubai and Sector 8, the Alfieri, disadvantaged by its wider drift radius, is around ten frames slower than the Sparta. In the case of the latter, the Renault Alpine Celebration and Nissan 370Z Special Edition are better due to their sharper drifting radius.
It is effectively the new fastest Class C car in the game. With motorcycles considered too, it is only slower than the MV Agusta F4 1000 R (if supercharged speed is considered).
The Maserati Alfieri is the new best Class C car, although its restrictive availability makes it rarer than the Sbarro Sparta, which can be assembled with Blueprints. Unlike the Sparta, though, the Alfieri does not have the restrictive usability of an Elite Car.
The Alfieri is currently the best car for Maserati-only events due to its better overall performance than the MC12 and GranTurismo, both of which are in Class B.
In the modified matchmaking used for the Heatwave Season in the Fifth Anniversary Update, the Alfieri, with its aforementioned total speed, meant that it would be pitted against cars like the Mercedes-Benz Biome, Pagani Zonda R, and Shelby Cobra 427. Its acceleration, high raw top speed, and high nitro efficiency would have been advantageous over most other cars with similar total speeds.
In the reverted matchmaking used for the Fall Flash 2 Season in the Fifth Anniversary Update, the Alfieri, with its low total speed in relation to its rank (especially with the rank needed to win the Alfieri in its R&D), means that it is not competitive against cars like the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition or Porsche Carrera GT, amongst many others.
Price and Availability
The Maserati Alfieri can only be obtained from its R&D event.
The car was available for limited time during the following dates:
As of the 2020 Halloween Update, the Alfieri can be purchased for 780,000.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 1,561,000 while Pro Kits require 520,800, 40 of each Class C Part, 36 Initial & Early Techs each, 28 Mid-Techs, and 60 Hybrid Engines.
Research & Development

The Maserati Alfieri's R&D event was launched on September 13 2018 after the Porsche Carrera GT's Championship. The event has 50 Tests spanning 4 Labs with a time limit of 4 days to participate and 10 days to complete.
The event was revived on July 25, 2019 in the Showdown Update after the Bentley Continental GT3's Championship. Unlike the original run, no Pro Kit Boxes or Free Upgrades are awarded, and the AI times were significantly reduced. It was revived a second time on June 1, 2020, in the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, as part of that update's Asphalt Moments series.
