Four-seat Ferraris don’t get a lot of love, and the 612 Scaglietti got less than most – but this one is a bit different.
Built by Vandenbrink Design, it is a stylish shooting brake which manages to maintain the Ferrari identity intact.
Of course, there are some changes, most notably thr all-new rear end that turns the model into a V12-powered wagon. The company didn’t say much about the conversion, but the car has a gently sloping roof with integrated skylights. We can also see new rear quarter windows and a massive C-pillar. Elsewhere, it has been fitted with a custom tailgate that features a spoiler, a rear wiper and a prominent Ferrari emblem.
The cabin largely carries over, but it is slightly more practical than the original as it features a leather-lined cargo compartment with a pass-through to the second row.
The one-off shooting brake is currently on display at the Classic Youngtimers Consultancy in Uden, Netherlands. Their website shows that it is based on a 2005 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and has 17,937 miles (28,867 km) on the odometer. The asking price is €300,000 ($340,245 / £235,479), which is admittedly pretty steep, but there’s nothing else quite like it – at least not yet.
That’s because, according to the company, “an additional limited series of Vandenbrink 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.” The company says each model will be designed for a purpose and include features for specific activities such as “falconry, racing and equine sports.”
