Maserati Quattroporte limousine – Click above for an image gallery

While running around from merger to acquisition, Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne has been riding in style in a Maserati Quattroporte. And why shouldn't he? The luxurious sport-sedan is miles ahead of the Alfa Romeo 167 which Fiat executives were chauffeured around in beforehand, and better than anything Opel or Chrysler has got to show off, too. But one limousine company in Florida has what it figures is the next step up: a stretched Quattroporte with seating for ten.

Based on the previous incarnation of the Trident-emblazoned four-door – the horizontal slats in the grille are a dead giveaway over the vertical bars on the newer model – the Padilla Car Collection claims it's the only stretched Quattroporte in the world. And we certainly hope so. The company's also got stretches Hummers, Bentleys, Escalades, Mercedes S550s and a custom Chrysler 300 should you, your pals and your prom dates be looking for something a little more, um... reserved. For our part, we don't even want to know what the extra yardage has done for the QPorte's handling, with which we fell in love on the back streets of Salzburg, Austria, and we're quite sure Signore Marchionne doesn't, either.

      This will go nicely with the snap of a Cayenne limo I took the other day. All white, with rims to match (polished lips natch) and about the same length. Saw it cruising on I55 near Bolingbrook IL.

      No, it wasn't a turbo.

      FAKE!

      They have no interior shots because it's probably completely tasteless like most super-stretch limos.

      I hate to be the persnickety voice of the intertubes, but there's no such thing as an Alfa 167. Maybe you meant the 166?

      Fact is, the vast majority of cars with curvaceous roof- and window-lines look absolutely awful as stretch limos.

      Something tells me the single clutch auto-manual and Ferrari-like exhaust note makes for an interesting limo ride - with all that weight added on, its probably going full bore all the times.

        Something tells me the exhaust note has changed with the longer exhaust pipe mods inherent with the stretch. This is not a rear engine porsche stretch! (THAT would truly be an abomination.)

        All those pics and not a single interior shot. Nice work.

        well quattroporte means four dour so i think the name remains the same
        but nice thought
        they should add doors further forward and call it something like that

        I came here to write the same thing, though I think Maserati Octoporte would've been funnier...

      Remember that list of top ten prom rides...i put this at number one.

      From the pictures it looks photoshop'd.
        • 5 Years Ago
        it definitely does look shopped
        • 5 Years Ago
        its not. its a screenshot of a flash file. its legit
      • 5 Years Ago
      Oh great! Now Maserati aims to please the livery fleets. Next they will be adding taxi and police packages to fully dilute the marque.

      So what'll it do at the 'ring?
