Coachbuild shooting brake

There’s something distinct and exceptional about shooting brakes. Transforming a coupé into a sporty wagon adds a practical touch to the inherent elegance of the original design, creating a sublime combination that allows for the transport of items like shotguns and hunting dogs (as was the original intent), golf bags, or simply the luggage required for grand touring adventures.

The perfect one-off car

Reaching this close to the automotive ideal should logically intrigue any manufacturer, yet shooting brakes are rare, appearing as infrequently as February 29 on a calendar. Aside from the Volvo P1800 ES, Renault Scimitar GTE, and possibly the BMW Z3 Coupé, Ferrari stands out as a particularly devoted producer of shooting brakes, exemplified by models like the FF and GTC4Lusso.

The Breadvan Hommage

Ferrari’s fascination with shooting brakes dates back to the 1960s and ’70s, an era when coachbuilders were crafting stylish wagons from Aston Martins, Bentleys, Jaguars, Rolls-Royces, and other luxury cars. During this time, Luigi Chinetti, Jr. directed the creation of two such Ferraris: a Vignale-designed 330 GT 2+2 and a Panther West Winds-built Daytona. More recently, we applied this concept to a 599 and before that a Maranello.
