The Final Ride with the Dazzling Maserati Ghibli Hearse
A luxury hearse would definitely be a stylish send off for an affluent individual who spent a large portion of his/her lives in superfluity. Most would consider ferrying their corpses to the cemetery in a fancy hearse to cap off an individual’s life well lived.
As people are aware, making an entrance is a fundamental skill that one needs to adopt in life. The newly designed luxury hearse has extensively elaborated the importance when it comes to sending off a loved one in style. The Maserati Hearse, built by Ellena Autotrasformazioni, has a normal Ghibli front end. However, its rare body work is made of fiberglass and has been developed to house a coffin.
Ellena Autotrasformazioni, an Italian company, has in the recent past been known for making luxury funeral vehicles including the Mercedes Benz E-Class based model, Vito van and Rolls-Royce phantom based. This time they have decided to venture into Maserati, with their newest being the Maserati Ghibli Hearse named Autofunebre Ellena G 3.0. This has been a significant step in making the Hearse more visually appealing in the face of competition from other luxury hearse models such as the Lamborghini Countach or Porsche Panamera.
Ellena’s new corpse carriage car initially was a diesel powered Maserati Ghibli after which it became stretched by over 64 inches.
The dimensions of the XXL-sized vehicle are; 6,620 mm long, 1,945 mm wide, a coffin compartment’s length of 2,350 mm and a coffin bay height of 950 mm. While the length of a normal Ghibli is 195.7 inches, this Ellena’s creation is quite long. The vehicle certainly would look odd to you since it is a luxury sedan that has been chopped then lengthened and the back half remodeled.
The Maserati-based hearse may not be as majestic and long as the Rolls Royse Phantom-based B12 Hearse, but it is sportier. Instead of having a 6-cylinder engine that runs on a high-octane jungle juice, the Hearse comes equipped with three-liter turbo diesel, which makes it sound truly enjoyable under acceleration.
The car is outfitted with a phonic sound system, interior LED lights and a dual-zone climate control in the coffin compartment. The interior coffin space appears amazingly luxurious and truly would be a fancy way, taking that final ride. It also has a fancy external styling, plus low-profile sport tires. The front half looks exactly like any other Maserati Ghibli, but starting from the windscreen towards the back, many changes have been incorporated.
The roofline has been transformed to provide more headroom. As such, it continues to arch skywards before it levels out at the rear section. The rear axle is repositioned, being moved back by almost a meter to make sure the vehicle can carry a casket minus being split in half. The rear end also includes quad tailpipes, a rear bumper and lights just as in all Ghiblis.
Ellena Autotrasformazioni made the rear section of the Maserati Ghibli Hearse from fiberglass. It also made its tailgate, such that it can be opened from either a button inside the carriage or by use of a remote control.
The Maserati Ghibli Hearse also boasts other extras, which include an automatic flatbed, a removable stainless steel cross and artificial nautical leather that covers the entire coffin compartment. The removable stainless steel cross of the V6 model can be gotten rid of depending on a customer’s personal preferences or religion. Its doors are also dressed up in wreaths.
A standard diesel engine Maserati Ghibli is good for about 6.3 seconds to 100 km/h and 250 km/h. For a car weighing 1,910 kilograms, that is what a break horsepower of 271 and 443 lb-ft would translate to. Ellena’s conversion however weighs slightly more but still appears adequately fast.
The luxury hearse business has in recent times seen significant advancements whereby several companies have come up with quite competitive and elegant car models, in a bid to warrant a luxurious final send off. A vehicle doesn’t need to be horrible just because it transports the departed. It may seem uneconomical transforming a mid-sized sport sedan into a hearse, but it pretty much was the way to go for Ellena Autotrasformazioni.
The newest addition from the company, the Autofunebre Ellena G 3.0, has been impressive. It is without doubt that most individuals whose standard of life dwells pretty much on luxury, will find the Maserati Ghibli Hearse a great choice to shuttle corpses to their resting place one last time. It is not vivid why the firm went for the Ghibli as its basis for the hearse, but boy did it deliver. Its finished result perhaps is the most suitable way one would want to exit this planet.
