Maserati Bellagio Fastback Touring 2008

[B]Bellagio Fastback Touring[/B]

The need of a small élite of rich car enthusiasts to have a quick, sporty but also roomy and functional granturismo, able to carry without problems any equipment useful in the spare time, such as shotguns, golf-bags, skis and water-skis, dates back to the Fifties. In Great Britain they were defined shooting brake and in general they were produced in small series using high standing sportscars chassis. But the industrialization brought to the disappearance of those prestigious cars.

Since now on, gentlemen drivers can find this kind of car thanks to Touring Superleggera, the reborn coachbuilders based in Milan launching the most exclusive fastback of the 21st century: the Bellagio Fastback Touring, a five doors fastback based on Maserati Quattroporte mechanics, that will be produced in small series under the customer’s request. The Bellagio Fastback Touring has really unique features:

– It’s the most luxury and quick fastback in the world
– It’s got dimensions, technical specifications (max speed 275 km/h, 0-100 km/h acceleration in 5,2 sec.) and safety solutions identical to the saloon’s, but for hatchback and 50 kg more
– Folding the rear seats, the boot space is functional and roomy, 1,80 m long
– The boot space can be designed and assembled following the buyer’s needs: without modifying the space, the factory can in fact create made to measure protected trunks and supplementary bays
– Produced under request in small series, the Bellagio Fastback Touring can be realized with colours, interiors and materials directly chosen by the customer
– The Bellagio Fastback Touring has four comfortable seats and offers, between the rear seats, a capable space equipped following the client’s requests: it can become a bar, a small refrigerator, a separated space for game

Those interested in buying a Bellagio Fastback Touring must address to Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera or to Rossocorsa, the Milan Maserati dealer. After the delivery of a Maserati Quattroporte saloon (any version) the work starts and is realized together with the client, who’ll be involved in any choice: a unique and fascinating experience, almost impossible to imagine, in the era of mass production also for extreme cars.

The price of a Bellagio Fastback Touring depends on the basis of the chosen saloon version, of specific requests and of used materials, but the starting price is identical or even lower than equivalent sportscars: with a Bellagio Fastback Touring a particularly demanding expert can have a custom-built car at the price of a supercar. And, above all, a tailor-made Maserati signed Carrozzeria Touring
Superleggera.

Did they just try and cover up the center console with a black square?

IBrake4Rainbows 05-04-2008 05:56 AM

I'm assuming the black square is some sort of rear- television.

and still, theres something unsettling about this car....it reminds me, with the window line at least, of early/late 90's Pininfarina concepts that were eventually sold to the Koreans......

I can' see anything Korean, to be honest, but there is something similar to Maserati Kubang's rear in this car.

Beautiful! :cool:

It certainly is much more successful than the [I]other[/I] Quattroporte Estate...

This car is still 90% Pinninafarina's design. I can not understand how in good conscience Touring can change one detail and put their badge on it.

An easy way to avoid situations like [URL="http://www.worldcarfans.com/9080313.015/ferrari-not-impressed-with-stretched-360"]this one[/URL].

Not a bad looking estate, but it's not the fastest like it claims :p

The fastest estate that you can buy is the Audi RS6 Avant

But it's limited to 250km/h.

The old Plus could do 280km/h, though.

That's what ECU chips are for :)

looks good, a reminder of the 456 Estate... a little.

LeonOfTheDead 05-04-2008 02:43 PM

...i just cannot like the way the changed the little side vents. they could seem just a sticker upon the old vents. changed at all, or removed, would make me feel better:)

Bellagio Fastback Touring #2

Odd that they call it a 'fastback', the style and shape of the rear pillars/glass does not fit what I know has been traditionally termed 'fastback' which has a longer slope.
