Vandenbrink Shooting Brake 2019
The ‘shooting brake’ body style is typically described as a sleek wagon with two doors and sports-car panache, its image entangled with European aristocracy, fox hunts and baying hounds. Very few shooting brakes have been created in history, the most famous ones being designed by amongst others Bertone, Drogo, Pininfarina, Touring Superleggera, Vignale and Zagato, fitting their custom two-door bodies to the chassis of pedigreed cars from e.g. Aston Martin, Bentley, Jaguar, Ferrari and Rolls- Royce.
The Vandenbrink Shooting Brake is based on the outstanding Ferrari 612 Scaglietti platform. In line with tradition Vandenbrink’s design features the low roof and sleek lines of a coupé, thus retaining the sex appeal whilst adding the practicality of a wagon.
The rare ‘shooting brake’ body style is showing signs of a renaissance as car manufacturers seek to (re)invent new kinds of vehicles for passionate drivers constantly on the hunt for the next new thing, with functionality tailored to specific lifestyle use.
With the first car having been built in 2019, an additional limited series of Vandenbrink Shooting Brakes will be built only on bespoke order. Teaming with top-level Italian design and production craftsmen Vandenbrink works with coach building specialists in the finest Italian tradition.
Each Shooting Brake will hereby be ‘designed to purpose’, with features for specific use like falconry, racing and equine sports. Exceptional exclusivity is hereby guaranteed.
The first created Vandenbrink 612 SB will be auctioned by Bonhams on October 11 2020, The Zoute Sale, Knokke Belgium.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
