This Custom Ferrari 612 Shooting Brake Is Absolutely Not a Breadvan

The famous Drogo-bodied, Bizzarrini-design Ferrari 250 GT SWB “Breadvan” is a wildly unconventional racing prototype from the ’60s, made to beat Enzo Ferrari’s inner circle at their own game. And if you wish to have a modern homage to that famous Ferrari, the good news is that England’s Niels Van Roij Design—makers of the Tesla Model S wagon and the Range Rover Coupé—are currently working on one.

The car you see here, however, is a magnificent 2+2 grand tourer by Pininfarina, turned into something that can easily make the Ferrari GTC4Lusso look ordinary.

The 612 Scaglietti is probably one of the few Ferraris that hasn’t been converted into a shooting brake for the royals of Brunei by Pininfarina. Sensing an opportunity, Dutch coachbuilder Vandenbrink Design penned its first 612 long-roof sketch back in 2008. With the project led by company owner Van den Heuvel, this Ferrari would become the first car they badged as a Vandenbrink, now simply referred to as their Shooting Brake.

Vandenbrink doesn’t fail to mention “European aristocracy, fox hunts and baying hounds” in its press release announcing the car. You know, traditional shooting brake stuff. The release also notes that, given some time, you too can have a bespoke Vandenbrink Shooting Brake.

Just make sure to use one of the 199 manual-equipped 612s as your donor car. Then you’ll really stand out!
