This Maserati Quattroporte 'Donk' has to be the weirdest car you'll lay eyes on

It even comes with spinners!

This sort of thing used to be somewhat popular in the late 1990s/early 2000s, the 'golden' era of OTT tuning. I must've watched a thousand episodes of MTV Cribs and Pimp My Ride with cars like this one but the Maserati Quattroporte you see here was actually sold last week in Kentucky.

This aftermarket potpourri started out in life as a 2008 Maserati Quattroporte GT and things were fine until somebody decided to paint it orange and fit 26-inch spinners. The wheels are much bigger and much closer to the wheel arches than they ought to be and the result is a 'donk'* (wannabe) style makeover that's really not doing this old Maser' any favors. Me thinks.

Still, as least the interior is in good condition (apart from the door inserts) and the 400-hp 4.2-liter V8 hasn't been modified at all, which means it is probably going to sound great and cost you a lot of money in maintenance and repairs.

This was a $125k when it was new but the car you see here, with those spinners and 67,000 miles under its tires, was sold for $12,995.

*'donk' is the nickname for a customized 1971-76 Chevrolet Caprice or Impala but it is sometimes used for any car with oversized wheels too close to the wheel arches
