What would you do if you were an Arab sheik with literally unlimited funds and also a car fanatic ? Well, in a specific case, a Middle Eastern sheik ordered a custom estate wagon version of Maserati Quattroporte.

This client has also ordered a few custom estate wagon Ferraris and the reason we say it didn’t go cheap is that he wants luxury and a StudioM’s previous project only for the interior of Maserati Quattroporte went to a whopping €350,000.
