Alfa Romeo 4C Concept to Also Get Maserati Production Version

Maserati wins clients over by using its Italian charm, a complex character that also involves a little dose of visual vulgarity. Wait, don’t start throwing rotten vegetables at us - Maserati’s lines are elegant, but in the same way in which a 2m tall supermodel looks when she uses a business suit.

Anyway, the aforementioned asset can turn into a prohibitive feature. You see, there are certain potential customers who could afford a Maserati and love its tempting shapes, but can’t buy one because it would draw too much attention.

Well, the company might be preparing to up the ante on the aforementioned front, as it is rumored that the Italian are willing to create their own vehicle based on the of the bewildering Alfa Romeo 4C Concept.

You know, the sexy temptress power by the Tasmanian Devil (this is how we decided to call the 1.75 TBi engine that powered the Giulietta QV we tested), which was tweaked to deliver a bit more power. And yes, the unit has been moved to a central position, which should offer the “sub-tonic” car a sexy handling to match that exterior.

Of course, this adds to the previous reports which indicate that Abarth will spawn its own incarnation of the 4C. Now the rumors stating that Abarth would create a sportscar underpinned by the KTM X-Bow’s chassis (which is used by the 4C) make sense.

What can we sayother than we’re really looking forward to seeing Maserati truly unleash its charm, so we can’t wait to read the official press release.
