The Maserati Alfieri, which bears the name of the company's most illustrious founder, attracted attention when its concept car debuted at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The first vehicles will go on sale in the 2018 model year after production started in 2016. The A6GCS, which Pininfarina created for Maserati in the middle of the 1950s, is strongly incorporated into this 2+2 coupe's powerful contours. It will have a 4.7 litre V8 engine and a six-speed automated transmission. The Maserati Alfieri will be available for purchase starting at $100,000.
Maserati and renowned vehicle designer Pininfarina have a long history together, which dates back to the A6GCS/53. There were only 4 of these Berlinettas produced beginning in 1953. One of the most well-known vehicles Maserati has ever produced is a racing vehicle with a beautiful, recognizable profile.
A6GCS/53s are expected to cost at least $2,200,000 if you can get one at an auction. Between 1947 and 1956, Maserati of Italy produced a line of grand tourers, racing sports cars, and single-seaters under the Maserati A6 name. Their straight-six engine and Alfieri Maserati, one of the Maserati brothers who founded RENT MASERATI LEVANTE, were the inspirations for their names. The 1.5-liter straight-six, which was based on the pre-war Maserati 6CM and was given the moniker A6 TR (Testa Riportata for its detachable cylinder head), produced 65 horsepower (48 kW).
It initially featured in the Ernesto Maserati and Alberto Massimino-designed A6 Sport or Tipo 6CS/46, a Barchetta prototype. This evolved into the A6 1500 Pinin Farina-designed two-door Berlinetta, which was initially displayed at the 1947 Geneva Salon International de l'Auto (59 were produced), and the spider, which was displayed at the 1948 Salone dell'automobile di Torino (2 made).
Between 1957 and 1964, Maserati produced this two-door grand tourer. The closed top variant was an immediate success, and it was the automaker's first successful introduction of a Gran Turismo series. Despite having good sales, the 3500 GT convertible fell short of the earlier model. It was a drool-worthy car even then, and auto enthusiasts still enjoy it now thanks to its low roofline, 3.5-liter engine, and gorgeous detailing.
The Maserati 3500 GT was made in 2,210 units, and buying one today will set you back at least $180,000. The Italian automaker Maserati produced the 2-door coupé and convertible grand tourers known as the Maserati 3500 GT (Tipo 101) and the Maserati 3500 GT Convertibile (Tipo 101/C) between 1957 and 1964. It was a landmark car for Maserati since it represented the brand's first effective foray into the Gran Turismo market and mass production.
Due in large part to vehicles like the A6GCM, whose 2-liter, twin cam inline-six engine had previously been expanded to a three-liter capacity on the Maserati 300S, Maserati had achieved racing success and gained international recognition in the early 1950s. Giulio Alfieri, the chief engineer, believed that the next step was to create a brand-new, 3.5-liter engine.
The long-stroke six that resulted, which was primarily created for endurance racing on the Maserati 350S, was ready in 1955. Maserati's early efforts into the grand tourer market in the interim—the 1947 A6 1500, 1951 A6G 2000, and 1954 A6G/54—had established the viability of the market, but the A6 road vehicles were still produced in a meagre 12 copies annually, scarcely in a series. To create fully functional grand tourers, a different strategy was required.
The original Maserati Ghibli was created with a stunning exterior and an extraordinarily low profile in mind. It is both long and wide, and just 46 inches tall. The first Maserati Ghibli sacrificed comfort for appearance, even though the rear and nose are both very distinctive. This vehicle was initially made as a V8 GT from 1967 to 1973, and then from 1992 to 1997 it was produced once more as a coupe with a V6 twin turbo engine. Since 2013, the Maserati Ghibli has been redesigned as a mid-size luxury sedan with a 4-door saloon body, a 3.0 litre engine that is dual turbocharged, and enticing interior elements. A current Maserati Ghibli will set you back at least $71,600. Expect to pay more for an outdated model.
The Maserati Tipo 61, sometimes referred to as the Birdcage, was designed as a race vehicle with exceptional speed, power, and endurance. It had independent front suspension, a strong chassis for competitive advantage, lightweight construction, and a 5-speed manual transmission. Over 200 parts made up the chassis itself, which was engineered for maximum performance. Its massive wheel arches and open top design are easily recognisable, and it established itself as a champion in the racing industry. When a Maserati Tipo 61 does surface at auction, it normally sells for over $3,500,000.
The Maserati Merak and Maserati Bora have some structural and physical similarities due to their year-old release dates. However, this sports vehicle was a 2+2 that cost less money and had a V6 engine and two more seats for more interior space. The Merak had recognisable style and components that were unmistakably inspired by France. Maserati Meraks totaling 1,830 were produced between 1972 and 1983. The average price of these antique autos is $50,000 or more.
Spectators oohed and aahed when the MC12 was originally unveiled as a race car and put on tracks. Maserati was making its comeback to racing after a nearly 40-year absence, and this car didn't let them down. The Maserati MC12 gained popularity after competing in numerous illustrious championships, and a few were made for use on public roads. The Enzo Ferrari and this model are frequently contrasted, however the MC12 has a broader, longer, and sharper snout. Only 62 of the Maserati MC12 were produced, 12 of which were built specifically for racing. 2004 saw the production of 25 of the vehicles for usage on public roads, and 2005 saw the production of another 25 vehicles. These vehicles were all too expensive to enter into show rooms.
Although Maserati is now widely recognised as a manufacturer of high-end sedans, it didn't join that market until 1963, when it unveiled the Quattroporte. It was fashionable and sporty but so different from any Maserati that had been made before. It has a striking grille, wide windows, and an unusual combination of angles and curves. The Quattroporte series went on to have five further revisions after the initial model. The most recent model was introduced in 2013 and has incorporated several design influences from the earlier models. A contemporary Maserati Quattroporte costs as little as $106,900.
This amazing partnership between Pininfarina and Maserati is one of their most recent projects. The GranTurismo is exquisitely sculpted, sharply defined, and has enough raw power to satisfy any vehicle enthusiast. This four-seat coupe comes equipped with a 4.2 or 4.7 litre engine, a 6-speed automatic transmission, and a luxurious and comfortable interior. In 2007, the GranTurismo made its debut. For $132,825, you may own the most recent Maserati GranTurismo.
This concept car is so different from anything Maserati has ever unveiled, yet that's absolutely appropriate for the event and the brand. The Birdcage 75th was developed to commemorate Pininfarina's longtime partner, the carmaker, turning 75 years old. It caused a stir at the 2005 Geneva Auto Show and was a lovely homage. Although it's difficult to put into words how this car looks, the word "unique" surely fits the bill. The body is a one-door berlinetta that is sleek and has canopy doors. The same engine that powers the Enzo Ferrari also powers the Maserati Birdcage 75th, which also boasts a 6-speed automated transmission and 700 brake horsepower. This car is not for sale, but it is estimated to be worth over $3 million.
The company began as a tiny auto repair shop in Bologna, Italy, on December 1, 1914, and has since grown to become one of the most well-known automakers in the world. Alfieri, Bindo, Carlo, Ernesto, and Ettore, four brothers, teamed up on that day to start a company that would eventually grow into an empire. After more than a century, the word Maserati has come to represent elegance, sophistication, and luxury. Throughout its history, the firm has created some great automobiles, and purchasing a Maserati will set you back a good deal of money.
