Citing unnamed sources from Maserati, an AutoEvolution report says that the successor to the fastest Maserati ever made – the MC12 Stradale – has been approved for development. According to the report, the engineering expertise and technology for the “LaMaserati” will be obtained from Ferrari. The design will be reminiscent to that of the Ghibli saloon or the upcoming Levante crossover.
While the LaFerrari is exclusive with production limited to only 499 units, the Maserati version will be even more exclusive, with production restricted to 10-20 units. Prices of the hypercar will start at around €3 Million.
Pictured is the Maserati LaMaserati concept designed by transport designer Mark Hostler. Hostler conceptualizes the LaMaserati being underpinned by the Ferrari LaFerrari, powered by a 6.3-litre V12 engine sourced from Ferrari and without the KERS system. The concept is unrelated to Maserati.
Currently the automaker is busy gearing up for the debut of Levante crossover. Following this crossover, the company will develop the production version of the Alfieri concept which will serve as a GranTurismo succesor, as per the report. It will be rear-wheel driven and sport a Ferrari-developed 580+ hp 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. The unnamed sources reportedly also reveal that the company has hybrids on the cards for near future.
