Only 4 examples of this beautiful Maserati were ever built. When enthusiast Rex Butterfield first saw reference to this beautiful car, he knew he wanted one. Unfortunately, getting his hands on one of the 4 “real” coupes proved to be impossible. But that didn’t stop a determined guy like Rex.
In a quiet workshop just south of Austin, Rex is methodically constructing a replica of this car from scratch. Beginning with a full sized plywood mockup of the body, Rex has utilized the Italian “superleggera” style of construction.. a hand-fabricated tube frame covered with formed aluminum panels.
Rex utilizes the frame and engine of a donor Maserati Quattroporte. Virtually every thing else on the car is hand constructed in Rex’s shop. Click below to view a video of Rex’s project:
