Why not go out in style?

For many people, a hearse is the last vehicle they ever take a ride in, so it only makes sense to make that final drive to the cemetery in as interesting a car as possible. The Italian firm Ellena srl autotrasformazioni lets you go to the grave with real panache by modifying a Maserati Ghibli into a hearse.

The firm’s Facebook page shows its other hearse conversions but most of them are Mercedes-Benz models, with the exception of a very odd looking Chrysler 300. While these vehicles are interesting, taking your final ride in a Maserati would look much more stylish.

Ellena’s conversion adds a huge top and extra length to the Ghibli’s rear. It looks bulbous but in a jovial way. There are no details on the firm’s Facebook page, but we presume there are also significant modifications to the suspension to handle the extra weight of a casket in the back. Despite the extra heft, hearses don’t need to drive very quickly, so the stock biturbo 3.0-litre V6 should have plenty of power.

Ellena certainly has the right idea with this conversion, but there’s another Italian model that would look even better as a hearse. If the company’s Ghibli is a success, it needs to prep a Ferrari GTC4Lusso for funeral duty next.
