The Maserati Quattroporte defined the modern comeback of Maserati and has been praised for its looks and design the world over. Now, Italian coachbuilder Carrozeria Touring Superleggera is introducing a station-wagon version of the Quattroporte, dubbed the Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio Fastback. The car will be shown at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa D'este from the 25th to the 27th of this month, at Lake Como in Italy. The Bellagio Fastback is still in concept form and details about any production possibilities are hard to come by at the moment, but any sales of the concept will without a doubt require a sizable bank account.
Carozzeria Touring will be releasing the car as a part of its own comeback, after it faded from the coachbuilding limelight in the wake of coachbuilding becoming an in-house process for most carmakers and the dominance of Pininfarina and ItalDesign. Carozzeria was established over 80 years ago, and was responsible for a number of stunners including the likes of Ferraris, Alfa Romeos and even Aston Martins. The company now plans to reveal a modern day Superleggera
at the upcoming Concours d’Elegance Villa d’Este in addition to the Bellagio Fastback concept and there are plans to reignite old ties with a number of international carmakers.
Surprisingly this is not the first time someone has wanted a Quattroporte-based wagon. Earlier in the year we reported about a concept built by StudioM and StudioTorino dubbed the Maserati 'Cinqueporte'
, essentially a wagon version of the Quattroporte. The concept was built for a discerning Arab customer for use in the desert and features a new set of folding rear seats and only one model was built and sold for a price tag reportedly in excess of €350,000.
