LaMaserati concept is an alien spacecraft disguised as a hypercar

If a Maserati MC12 and a LaFerrari supercar hooked up, the LaMaserati hypercar would be its child. Inspired by the LaFerrari, designer Mark Hostler designed the LaMaserati to be the successor to the Maserati MC12.

Unlike his Lamborghini Ferruccio concept) from 2012, the LaMaserati sports a curvier, alien, and more organic design instead of the aggressive missile-like form. And check out those antenna-like side mirrors that hang out from the car's roof. Isn't that something?

Hostler envisions the LaMaserati dumping the LaFerrari's kinetic energy recovering system (KERS), while maintaining its 6.3-liter V12 engine. The only change would be the engine would be retuned to emphasize power instead of speed. Theoretically speaking, the LaMaserati would shed the LaFerrari's lithium battery, which would be a reduction of about 132 pounds. Of course, all of this is just purely conceptual.

The La Maserati is another one of those stunning concepts that will likely never be made, so enjoy the gratuitous car porn in the gallery below. It's the closest any of us will ever get to a Maserati hypercar.
