    If this is the replacement for my Alfa 4c I’m all in.

    I have no idea but if I were to guess it starts at about 130K. A complete guess

    Extrapolating from the cheapest McLaren puts us around 180K+.
    Just my 2 cents!

    4c must has been Maserati with a 3.0V6 engine... this is lost time for Maserati.

    Marchionne was obsessed with alfa romeo...

    Alfa Romeo should have GTV (Giulia Coupe), but then the fusion with PSA appeared...

    Well considering the 570S is like 5 years old and getting replaced in a month, that's not very encouraging...

    I like this idea. They need to pick a niche and stay there. Does the world need another super car manufacturer around the 200K mark? Maybe a Bora/Merak pairing again not necessarily with those names.
    Good handling, comfortable and drop dead gorgeous which a Mclaren is not.

    OK this one was

    Expect the MC20 to be in the 180 - 200k range, with carbon fiber construction and 620 hp. 0-60 in the 2 - 2.5 range. That is F8 performance at 100k less.

    Old age, medications?

    Anyway, my comments say nothing about Maserati's current or past racing activities.
    I simply reiterated the old maxim:
    Race on Sunday, sell on Monday.
    Period.

    No further comments forthcoming.

    That’s what the Alfieri was supposed to be (911 competitor) but they managed to screw that up.

    This may sound insane---but, I believe that the Alfieri is alive and well.
    It is the new Gran Turismo!
    Let's wait and see!

    Maybe but it was supposed to be in production in 2018 or something like that with a V6. It's 2020 and there's no word on it. Missed opportunity for them.

    while the new GranTurismo may have styling cues from the Alfieri (the entire current model range has an Alfieri inspired grill) it will be a completely different car. If you want an Alfieri go buy a Ferrari Roma.

    Those have also been very different sorts of cars. Front engine, real passenger room in the back seat for the coupe. A natural progression from the 4200. I'm thinking they will continue to be?

    That is an MC12. I heard several companies are doing live video's due to Geneva being cancelled.

    Obviously the Beijing show was also cancelled, where Maserati planned to debut the Ghibli hybrid. Alfa supposedly was going to debut a “GTA” version of the Giulia at Geneva. Next major show is NY may see them then.

    Lord knows how NYC will handle the virus and by then there may be enough cases for some real panic. Virtual Auto Shows are the future! LOL
