Click above to view high-res gallery of the IED Maserati Chicane concept

Geneva has been good to Maserati. Last year the company unveiled the GranTurismo to thunderous applause, and followed up this year with the more powerful GranTurismo S. Meanwhile, the students of the Instituto Europeo di Design unveiled their Maserati Chicane concept, which won out over rival designs to win sponsorship and a spot under the bright lights of the Geneva Motor Show to show their talent to the world.

We caught up with the IED graduate design students and found our cameras snapping away at the striking concept. Although certain details aren't likely to find their way onto a production Trident, with the design chiefs from Maserati and Fiat AG on the selecting jury, we wouldn't be all that surprised to see some similarities when Maserati eventually unleashes its anticipated new sportscar.

Check out the video in our previous post and the high-resolution images in our gallery.

      The lines completely mesmerized me. This thing is perfect. I really love the fender/hood treatment.

      My hair dryer has the same nose.

      Is it me or does that nose look like they lifted it from a 70's `Vette?

      love it.
      and i dont know the vents/ports arent too bad..
      is there any function to them here?
      • 6 Years Ago
      I don't think those are vents.
      I thought they were the headlights, maybe?

      This is cutting edge european design? It's a freaking Corvette Stingray!

      Sans the port holes i greatly prefer this to the dodgy GranTurismo.

      Wow, couldn't get a single good rear-end shot?

      NICE CORVETTE!!

      GM should buy the model, change it here and there, and produce it.
