The Shooting Brakes


The Shooting Brakes

Avant, Touring, Estate, Wagon. Whatever you want to call them, the Shooting Brakes are an anomaly in the supercar world. None that we know of have come straight from a manufacturer and most were built in very limited editions.

If a customer wants a two-door wagon capable of high speed and room for the dog, we can think of no better option than Roos Engineering’s V8 Vantage. But this is no ordinary Vantage, instead it is the V600 version which receives so much acclaim for its 600 bhp engine. The result is stunning and we have some new pictures to prove it. Also, we should mention Roos isn’t the first company to transform Aston Martins like this; Radford outfitted several DB5s in the 1960s.

Probably the most absurd example of a Shooting Brake would be the converted Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona of the Ferrari 250 GT Breadvan which contested events like the 24 hours of Le Mans. Other contenders for the 2-door shooting brake title include the Chevrolet Nomad, Mini Cooper S Clubman and Mindset EV.
