Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio: Quattroporte Estate for saleThu, 24 Mar 2011 00:00:00 -0700
Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio - built by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera
There, and I bet you didn’t even know there was such a thing as a Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio, much less that it was a Quattroporte Estate. But then it’s not an official Maserati job, but it does have a credible provenance.
Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera are a company you will have come across once or twice in the last year if you’re a regular visitor to Cars UK.
Most recently, Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera took the ugly duckling that is the Gumpert Apollo and turned it in to a hypercar swan – the Gumpert Tornante by TOURING – which we saw at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Prior to that – at the Geneva Motor Show in 2010 – we saw a Bentley Continental Estate put together by the self-same Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera – the Bentley Continental Flying Star – a more than credible Shooting Brake take on the Bentley.
But pre-dating all this, in 2008, was the Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio, an estate version of the Quattroporte and, we have to say, a very credible looking job.
We have no idea whether Touring Superleggera made one or a dozen Bellagios, but as we’ve never seen one before we would err towards the smaller number. But however many were made, one is now up for grabs in Holland for €165k. Which is probably three times what a regular 2008 Quattroporte would set you back.
But what price individuality?
