One-Off Maserati Quattroporte Shooting Brake Is Both Suave And Practical

Maserati never built a Shooting Brake version of the Quattroporte, but a few years ago, Carrozzeria Touring made four, based on the previous-generation Italian car – and, indirectly, led to the creation of this car.

That’s because one enthusiast was so disappointed by the fact that he missed his chance to buy one that was auctioned off in 2013, he decided to take the matter into his own hands.

Thus, he set out to create his own Quattroporte Shooting Brake. The man reached out to a few UK companies to build his ultimate ride. However, most of them charged about £200,000 ($263,866/€233,296) for the conversion, excluding of course the cost of a Quattroporte. Shortly after, he met Adam Redding, a top quality car restorer, and after going over the budget and viewing a few renderings, he commissioned Adam for the build. As for the donor vehicle, it started life as a 2015 Quattroporte and was first registered in 2016.

Roughly 1,500 man-hours later, the project was finished. It has a Gunmetal Grey metallic paint, 20-inch Mercurio alloy wheels, Nero leather inside, piano black trim, satellite navigation system, heated seats, sunroof, reversing camera and other gizmos. Most importantly, it’s a one-of-a-kind Shooting Brake, with only 8,714 miles (14,023 km) on the clock that’s powered by a 3.0-liter diesel engine and has a custom rear end with an electric tailgate.

The car is currently up for grabs at Autostorico, in the United Kingdom, and if you’re interested in adding it to your collection, you’ll have to contact them directly to find out how much it costs.

    Horrible. People doing this kind of conversion have really no idea about automotive design (same goes for that Tesla S shooting brake conversion).
    The shoulder and beltline on the QP VI are so clearly visible and easier to extrapolate, yet they decided to completely ignore them and go with a straight line and a CLS shooting brake window line. Why?

    • Matt

      They probably used a CLS as a donor vehicle. After all, it’s exceeding difficult to engineer a one-off estate rear hatch with all the shut lines and water channels etc. looks like they just welded a CLS Shooting Brake rear onto the QP. Or perhaps they used a couple of different donor vehicles. In any case, the looks are off.

      I made my own rendition or version to their original. Hopefully it fixes things. I’m not going to say they have not idea about automotive design (as maybe this is just their own taste), but I do agree in the fact that it doesn’t flow (at lest in my own opinion) very well.

      I personally have a bit of experience in automotive design and I tired a bit to fix up what they had done, it took about 10 minutes to get the curvature right (also note I’m working with what they’ve already done, not starting from scratch), but I attempted to fix it the best I could in the meantime.

        You should have used Levante’s rear end for inspiration. The rear fenders on the Ghibli, QP and Levante are very prominent and a crucial design feature of those cars, you can’t ignore them

    Near perfection. Just needs a coat of brown and a stick.

    I just can’t reconcile “Maserati” and “Diesel” in the same sentence. Italian exotic brands need to have rip-snorting, high revving gasoline engines. Otherwise they just become German clones that depreciate even faster – which may explain why this car looks like a CLS.

    • Marc Gruben

      And to me, the perfect Italian exotic wagon was the Ferrari 456 Venice

    Doesn’t this make it a Cinqueporte?

  • Zandit75

    I hate to be the one saying this, but this monstrosity makes the Tesla Shooting Brake look attractive!
    I’m curious though, what would he have ended up with if he had accepted the dearer options? Additionally, what did he pay to have this done, if the original quotes were too high?

    • MultiKdizzle

      The Tesla Shooting Brake is attractive

      • Zandit75

        The Model S is pretty good looking, but I’m not a fan of the Shooting Brake, I’m just admitting it looks a lot better thank this Maserati!

  • Six Thousand Times

    Looks pretty well executed. Not sure about the blind spot but this came out nicer than most of these things.

  • Who let the CLA shooting brake and the Quattroporte have a baby?

  • StrangerGP

    Definitely looks like a hearse in that side profile pic.

  • Aaron Stevens

    It’s got four doors. IT’S A STATION WAGON NOT A SHOOTING BRAKE!

    • Enter Ranting

      Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

      • Aaron Stevens

        no, it just bothers me when people don’t get the terms right. pretty station wagon tho.

  • Mike anonymous

    It looks as though they’ve attached a CLA or CLS shooting brake to the rear end of the vehicle. It personally does not seem to match the vehicle design at all…. and with that; I DECIDED TO DO A BIT OF EDITING AND DESIGN TO THE VEHICLE MYSELF.

    Hopefully the fixes some things,.. I think my version suits this vehicle better (personally) than the original version shown. Enjoy everyone : ) .

    • Stephen G

      Nope.

    • Tinky-Winky

      Too much work with the doors which would have skyrocketed the price. The CLS-like rear end works pretty well, considering the limitations that the original design sets.

  • Tinky-Winky

    I’m not a fan of Maserati’s current design language but this is actually pretty well done. At least it fits well with the original design and looks like a quality job with clean lines and smooth surfaces. Can’t say the same about that Tesla we recently saw.
