Description

Dutchmen Robert Koumans (Vandenbrink Design) and Maurik van den Heuvel (Classic Youngtimers Consultancy) proudly present the unique 'Vandenbrink 612
Shooting Brake'. The acclaimed design was originally presented in 2008 by Vandenbrink. Van den Heuvel, a passionate shooting brake enthusiast, became
enchanted by this unique prospect and has had the special Vandenbrink Shooting Brake design produced in-house, resulting in the first Vandenbrink car to hit the road. 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 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 companies 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 now having been realised, an additional limited series of Vandenbrink 612 Shooting Brakes will be built only on bespoke order, exclusively for visionary and knowledgeable customers with passion for the underlying automotive quality, aesthetic excellence and historical significance. 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 Vandenbrink 612 Shooting Brake can be seen in the showroom of Classic Youngtimers Consultancy in Uden, The Netherlands.
