Pagani Huayra Shooting Brake Render: Grotesque Or Awesome?

Nowadays, the term Shooting Brake can be used to describe any type of Estate car that’s styled in a more aggressive or fashionable manner, where the roof line kind of slopes down towards the taillights.

However, when it was first conjured up back in the 1890s, Shooting Brake used to stand for a more practical horse-drawn wagon, able to hold shooting parties, their equipment (gun racks and ammunition) and whatever defenseless animal they happened to slay along the way.

Then came the 1900s and the automotive industry got in on the nomenclature. Eventually, it was popularized by the likes of Aston Martin as far as two-door models were concerned, with many other brands following in their footsteps.

Thanks to Ferrari, we even have a modern-day supercar that can be described as a genuine Shooting Brake in the FF, so the floodgates are open for exotics too.

Should Pagani consider a Shooting Brake?

We’re going to let you be the judge of that. If you have trouble imagining what a Pagani Shooting Brake might look like, check out these renderings courtesy of Yasid Design. He took a Huayra and added a regular roof (of sorts) – it doesn’t actually make the hypercar more practical, seen as how the Huayra’s 6.0-liter twin turbocharged Mercedes-AMG V12 engine is at the rear (technically it’s mid-engined), so the “conversion” wouldn’t result in any extra passenger or luggage space.

Still, the render shows a completely new aesthetic, one that borrows the Huayra BC’s gigantic rear diffuser, loses the rear wing, and adds a wide body kit. It’s definitely interesting, and we wouldn’t mind actually seeing one in real life as a project. But as a production version of the Huayra? That might be a really tough sell.

    Needs to have a little shelves, just big enough so you can crawl back there over top the engine and feel that power plant when it opens up. Kids would love it. 🙂

    Sweet. As like a skunksworks type of project, this could be a very cool one-off. Perpetually checking out features not to be found on civilian counterparts, occasionally breaking something – or everything – and having to tear everything apart and retry again.

    Unapologetic beast in its PLEASINGLY grotesque presence… way too much for most-build it NOW. I want a mind shock, I want to be turned off and then lured in when it fires up and rips like HELL!
