Some of us – okay, one of us – here at Autoblog may disagree, but there's no shortage of people who think the Maserati Quattroporte is one of the most beautiful four-door works of automotive art this side of a Toyota Prius. All the more so after having driven it in Austria. So why, then, do so many coachbuilders seem bent on ruining it?

We've seen Quattroportes covered in shattered glass, dipped in 24-karat gold, and wrapped in Burberry tartan. We've seen 'em stretched beyond recognition, tweaked into touring cars, turned into station wagonstwice, actually – even an old one transformed into a fire truck. Yes, a fire truck. And now this: A Maserati hearse.

Modified by Intercar Modena – a company that offers funerial conversions of everything from Ssanyong Rextons to BMW sidecar motorcycles – the Quattroporte hearse is, well... there's really not much to say about it other than it's a hearse. Based on a Quattroporte. And while there aren't many worse things you could do with a Maserati, there are worse ways to go.

      Think of it this way: When you die, wouldn't you rather ride in this than a DeVille hearse? Besides, it gives funeral home workers a reason to actually be happy during the day, although rev-matching before clipping the apex of that hairpin in the graveyard driveway wouldn't help the mourning family.

        When I die it won't matter to me what it is.

      Things like this make me dislike aging. That and the potential loss of hear, I'm fine with going blind as long as I can still hear the cars going by. If one of those cars kills me, then so be it, I die a happy man.

      Shouldn't it be a Toyota hearse? The brand that keeps generating business for the funeral homes.

      Was the rear window looking like a sythe done on purpose?
