Breadvan Hommage

Ferrari aficionados will immediately recognize the “Breadvan,” a bespoke 250 GT that first appeared in 1962. Created to challenge the rising 250 GTO at Le Mans, the Breadvan stood out with its distinctive design and aerodynamic Kamm Tail. Despite its utilitarian look, it excelled on the track, effortlessly conquering the Mulsanne straight.

Hand-formed aluminum body

In homage to this legendary car, Netherlands-based design studio Niels van Roij has crafted the “Breadvan Hommage,” a modern reinterpretation based on the Ferrari 550 Maranello. After more than a year of meticulous work, the Breadvan Hommage features a hand-formed aluminum body and design cues reminiscent of the original, such as air vents between the headlights and a precisely cut hood. To enhance its aggressive stance and reduce weight, the Hommage includes plastic window louvers and 20-inch wheels.

The interior also embraces retro aesthetics, completing the 550 Maranello’s transformation into a tribute to the iconic Breadvan. The result is a breathtaking fusion of past and present, sure to captivate car enthusiasts.
