Maserati Quattroporte Bellagio Fastback conceptEnlarge Photo
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.
