The Maserati Quattroporte still has some time left before it becomes a classic, but you can get a head start with this particular unit.
Why? Because, as the title states, this car once to famous musician Sir Elton John. So, with this perk, you’ll undoubtedly be in front of the pack when the model's price starts going up. And it will…at some point, mainly due to the vehicle’s combination of charm and Italian expertise, although it might take some time.
Ordered new by Elton John, the Quattroporte features a wide array of extra equipment, including a rear DVD player and screen, games input, two headphones, remote control and CD changer. It also comes with the original Maserati welcome letter, unused personal 24hr concierge members card and personal gift of a matching leather covered key tray, tool kit, gloves and car cover.
Still, the best part about this machine is its price: it's estimated to fetch between £15,000 and £17,000 ($21,367 – 24,217). That’s an outstandingly good value for money, especially for a previous-gen QP with 28,000 miles (45,000 km) and Sir Elton John’s name on the V5 certificate.
“This is a wonderfully rare opportunity to buy an example of Italian exotica that goes like a rocket man", CCA classic car specialist Arwel Richards, commented. "There’s something about the way this car looks at night, and the vendor should still be standing as he waves goodbye along the yellow brick road to the auction rostrum!”
The Maser will go under the hammer at Classic Car Auctions’(CCA) March Sale that will be held on March 19 at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre, Leamington Spa.
