Take the Kids to School in this Maserati Quattroporte Shooting Brake
Another fast wagon?! Yes Please!
Let me start this by saying I'm not much of a fan of Maserati in recent years. The fact that you can fit a toothpaste container in the gap between the doorcard in a car that is supposedly "luxury" is crazy in my opinion. However, to me, the Maserati badge still carries a presence of some sort. It's a Maserati. Italian luxury, ya know? Their cars are still fast, and they are still decently cool.
But, they never made a wagon, which is a shame really. Wagons are a dying breed in a world full of boring SUV's. Fast wagons are the epitome of speed and practicality. If you want one, your choices are pretty limited: the V60 Polestar, E63 AMG wagon, and the Audi RS6 Avant. If you wanted one from an Italian manufacturer, too bad.
Until coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring decided that they would take matters into their own hands, and built 4 insane Quattroporte wagons, dubbed the "Bellagio Fastback".
The Bellagio Fastback
One British man was apparently a big fan of the Fastback because when he didn't win one at a 2013 RM Sotheby's auction, he decided to commission his own version of the car, but the newest generation Quattroporte.
The story goes he was shopping around at some coachbuilding companies to create a shooting brake Quattroporte, but they wanted too much money, so he went to a man named Adam Redding, who created the masterpiece you see before you. It's a 2015 car, but is was converted in 2016, so it is apparently a 2016 now.
The new car has been dubbed the "Cinqueporte", and the ad states that 1500 hours supposedly went into designed the wagon. It's finished in Gunmetal Gray, and has 20" wheels.
Oh yeah, one more thing, it's Diesel. Yes, a fast, diesel, Maserati wagon exists. And it's for sale (Link in comments.)
