We’re going all the way to Netherlands, home to coachbuilder and tuner Vandenbrink, who’s made a Shooting Brake version of the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. Building took ten years, believe it or not, but it’s truly worth the wait once you see the result.
All you car aficionados out there know full well that the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti Scaglietti offered precious little trunk space. Needless to say that it felt cramped by grand tourer standards. The first thing Vandenbrink decided to do? Expand the ride’s rear end. A challenging task, though, since they came across inherent chassis limitations. Still, the tuner persevered. It took ten years, but the larger Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is now a reality.
The shooting break body style first came out years ago, enamouring some of the industry’s greatest automative outfits. Still, only a handful of them ever made anything. One of them is Vandenbrink, its supercar a fine proof of its prowess. The sport wagon is a one-of-a-kind vehicle that features many characteristics wanted on a modern coupe. But you also have all the practical traits found on a classic wagon.
More impressively, the ride boasts a 540 ponies, thanks to a formidable 5.8-liter V12 engine. Vandenbrink is tight-lipped on the finer details, rightly so. But a quick glance suggests upgrades such as dual skylights, a custom tailgate, a roof spoiler, plus many more. If you want a better look, you’d have to buy it. Vandenbrink’s Ferrari 612 Scaglietti is available for purchase. Prepare to cut a check for $340,000, though.
