  • Maserati Alfieri concept

    Maserati will finally replace its 12-year-old GranTurismo next year with a new sports car available with a battery-electric powertrain. The new sports car was thought to be a production version of the 2014's well-received Alfieri concept, but Car Sales, citing a company insider, reported Friday that the Alfieri is dead and that the new sports car will have its own look. “Alfieri might be dead, but what’s coming instead will blow everyone away,” the insider said. “It’s even more beautiful.” Part of the reason could be Maserati's plan to base the sports car...

  • Maserati Quattroporte shooting brake

    Maserati knows a thing or two about designing a sexy car, but it's never once built a wagon. So, one man himself did for a customer. Road & Track reported on this wonderful Maserati Quattroporte Shooting Brake, which comes from Adan Redding. The Britain native has spent his life restoring classic cars and is somewhat of a mastermind when it comes to bodywork. We'd say this Quattroporte is proof of that. The car absolutely looks like it rolled off of an assembly line and wasn't a one-man job. As for the work that went into the car, Redding obviously redid the entire rear bodywork...
