The first-generation Maserati Quattroporte is now one of the cheapest super sport saloons money can buy that would still pass as a fun, classy, and cool car. There are plenty of them available in the second-hand market, but this one is going under the hammer soon because it’s a little bit more special.
This 2005 Maserati Quattroporte was once owned by Sir Elton John. That, we reckon, will attract as many people to this car as it put off. But it’s a fine example of the Quattroporte with only 28,000 miles on the clock and a long list of features including a rear DVD player and screen, games input, two headphones, remote control and six CD auto changer. It even has the original Maserati welcome letter, unused personal 24hr concierge members card, and personal gift of a matching leather covered key tray, tool kit, gloves and car cover.
To be sold at Classic Car Auctions’ (CCA) March sale, Elton John’s Maserati Quattroporte is estimated at between £15,000 and £17,000.
CCA classic car specialist, Arwel Richards, commented, “This is a wonderfully rare opportunity to buy an example of Italian exotica that goes like a rocket man. There’s something about the way this car looks at night, and the vendor should still be standing as he waves goodbye along the yellow brick road to the auction rostrum!”
