Maserati 4c-v8?

A few reports have surfaced saying that Maserati has its eye on the Alfa 4c as the basis for competing with the Porsche 911.

Maserati's focus had altered to new saloons and an SUV from the wider fiat parts bin. But the Modenese want to fightback with a mid-engined V8 sports car to bring the marque back to its roots.

Uk magazine Evo showed a mock up drawing speculating it would revive the GranSport name and is being pushed to fiat execs by Harald Wester, chief executive of Alfa Romeo and Maserati who will build the 4c.

While I think it is pretty its always good to get a second opinion and stunning cars are guaranteed at europes most prestigious classic car event.

The 4c was entered in Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este for a design contest for concepts and prototypes. Inspired by the beauty of lake Como the 4C was declared the winner against stuff competition from Aston Martin AM310, BMW z4 zagato, Stile Bertone Jaguar B99 and Ford's EVOS concept.
