This Ferrari 612 Scaglietti shooting brake is a coachbuilt beauty

A Dutch company has built a completely stunning reimagination of a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti as a shooting brake, a design the Modena brand never produced in-house.
The project was dreamt up by Robert Koumans of Vandenbrink Design
, a Dutch company consisting of just a few coachbuilding masters, as well as Maurik van den Heuvel of Classic Youngtimers Consultancy.
The design was first drawn up in 2008, but now they're ready to build some for customers.
The shooting brake style goes back to the golden age of street cars, with designers like Bertone, Drogo, Pininfarina, Touring Superleggera, Vignale and Zagato taking liberties with the original style of a vehicle to make it more usable for the rich folks that bought them to go fox hunting. Hence the name “shooting brake”—it was designed to hold your gun cases.
A lot of shooting brake conversions end up going wrong, but this one seems to be quite nice. The subtle curve on the rear roof gives it a much more sporty look, as do the glass roof inserts above the rear passenger compartment. The interior is beautifully finished, as well as the exterior, and we assume that Vanderbrink will make it any colour you like.
The 612 Scaglietti doesn't receive much love, mostly due to its wonky face. However, turning something into a shooting brake immediately makes it look better.
If you want one, you can actually buy one, if you have the cash. Vandenbrink Design is taking orders for the shooting brake, and they'll be built on a purely custom-order basis.
