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.
