Another creation from Italian coachbuilder Superleggera Touring based in Milan is this take on a Maserati Quattroporte, conversion into a Fastback Station Wagon, called the Bellagio. Whilst the car does not appear to have that much room in the trunk, the rear seats can be folded, giving a load space of 1.8 metres long, and can be based on any of the current Quattroporte specifications meaning the 4.7 litre V8 engine can be had, giving a 0-60 time of under 5 seconds, along with some serious one-off Italian style.
Here’s a sketch for a Bentley Continental GTC conversion into a shooting brake format (2 door station wagon) by a coachbuilding company called Carrozzeria Touring based in Milan, (company now rebranded into “Touring Superleggera”) and here’s some pics of the real thing shown at the 2010 Geneva motorshow.
This is a one off special Bentley Arnage Station Wagon, made for a private customer by the VGD Genaddi Design group in 2003. One of the strongest features of the car was the carry over of the walnut detailing into the rear of the car with a slide out loading shelf in the style of a classic boat deck.
Pininfarina was commissioned to make a series of official Ferrari approved conversions for the 456 GT model for the Prince Jefri Bolkiah and his family. The collection included convertibles and 4 door saloons but most famous was the station wagon version. The car was lengthened by 200mm and has strengthened rear suspension, but was otherwise very similar to the original 456 meaning it kept the car’s storming 5.5 litre V12 engine producing 436 horsepower.
