Video Action: Maserati Boomerang Concept

The Maserati Boomerang concept emerged back in 1972 and was perhaps ahead of its time. The spunky machine has proven what it is worth in today’s dollars when it changed hands for $3.7 million at Bonham’s recently. Check out the video clip below of the Boomerang in action:

The Maserati Boomerang concept was created to serve a special purpose—to show what the brand was capable of and that they were ahead of the curve, so to speak. At her very essence the Boomerang is a show car. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the Boomerang appeared at the 1972 Geneva Motor Show packing a 4.7-liter V8 engine borrowed from the Maserati Bora. The spirited and angular Boomerang produced an impressive 310 horsepower. read more

The Maserati Alfieri Concept is a Long Drink of Water

Maserati Alfieri Concept

Maserati cars are cookie-cutter for the most part. That is not a rude statement, but rather one known to be universally true. Enter the Maserati Alfieri concept. This stunning beauty is an elongated and updated idea of what the future of the brand could provide!

I am trying not to get overly revved up by the extreme dynamics of the Maserati Alfieri because it is still a concept and could emerge from the production line looking exactly like its predecessors. But if you allow that tiny voice inside your head to hold an ounce of hope…imagine seeing this on the streets! It would make a great addition to our fleet of Maserati rentals. read more

Maserati Levante SUV Leaves Jeep Platform in Rearview Mirror

Maserati Levante SUV

Rumors exploded over the past few months that the Maserati Levante concept would be built on a Jeep platform. While some were stoked about the possibilities, they will not come to pass on a Jeep chassis regardless of the parent relations between Fiat and Chrysler. The Maserati Levante SUV will instead sit on the new Quattroporte/Ghibli architecture. 

The Maserati Levante SUV will not be Jeep based after all. Maserati CEO Harald Wester has reviled changes to the plan. It will look very much like the Kubang concept, shown above. read more

A Strikingly Different Maserati: Meet the Bora Concept

Maserati Bora concept

Sadly, the Maserati Bora concept is not a ‘real boy’ yet–but it should be. If any Maserati fans are able to successfully scroll through the renderings of the Bora concept and fail to be sufficiently moved—I’ll have the reason why.

The Maserati Bora was produced from 1971-1978 and has a top speed of 171 miles per hour.

The Bora concept renderings depict a flashy modern version of its predecessors. 

The Maserati Bora concept was drawn by Alex Imnadze and drew inspiration from the mid-engine 1970’s ancestor. This is clear when you compare lines and certain features by lining photos of the two next to one another. While the Bora concept is starkly more modern, they are connected in shape. Imnadze also created the Alfa 6C concept and polished off the Bora concept over a two-week span using only his free time. He is an intern at iconic design house Bertone–which makes it further impressive that he is still working on side projects or that he even has the precious commodity of ‘spare time’.  I sense great things in Imnadze’s future. read more

The Maserati GranTurismo of 2020?

Maserati GranTurismo

Today’s automobile design students are churning out renderings for what could be the Maserati GranTurismo of 2020. This example is about a year old, but hopefully components of it survive to production. It certainly takes on a refreshing reshape from the traditional Maserati mold, while still nurturing brand identity.

The student artists responsible for this exciting 2020 Maserati GranTurismo concept have studied under the supervision of Fiat at Politecnico di Milano to obtain a Transportation and Automobile design master. read more

LaFerrari Inspires Next Maserati Supercar?

Maserati MC12

The Enzo successor unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show, LaFerrari, seems to have left an inspired Maserati singing along. Rumor has it that Maserati is feverishly planning its next supercar, to be loosely based on the aggressive LaFerrari.

Will Maserati produce a LaFerrari-based flagship supercar?

If Maserati is indeed gearing up to build a new hypercar based on the bones of LaFerrari, what can we expect? Some think it will be a blend of the MC12 and LaFerrari, with the suspension, chassis and electrical systems of Ferrari, but not the hybrid system. The body would probably be a unique carbon fiber creation, and it is never a challenge to recognize a Maserati. read more

Maserati Ghibli Renders Speculation

Maserati Ghibli

Renderings of the Maserati Ghibli are sparking conversations, mainly because of the sedan styling. The Maserati sedan is a departure, though not drastic, from the sleek sports coupe the world is accustomed to seeing. The Ghibli will be joining the next Maserati lineup, which offers something for nearly every type of driver.

The Ghibli is the new entry-level sedan for iconic Italian carmaker Maserati. 

The four-door layout of the Ghibli offers more space than its predecessors, in the backseat. The overall size is actually a touch more compact than the 2014 Maserati Quattroporte. The chosen name Ghibli is interesting for a 4-door sedan, as the word was originally used for the 2-seater models of the 1960s and 1970s. The name Ghibli was last used on a powerful derivative of the Biturbo in the 1990s, and was also a 2-door layout. read more

Enter the next gen Maserati Quattroporte with a brand-spanking-new interior cabin for the first time in…eons! This is a truly awful photo, but it is all we have until more leak out and this topic needs to be addressed.

The photo is on the blurry side, but it is better than nothing! If you find a better quality example, please share!

The problem for Maserati interiors has never been with materials and craftsmanship, but rather, design. With the plethora of exotic supercars sporting top-notch designer interiors, it is refreshing to see that Maserati has changed gears and headed in a new direction! read more
