Ferrari never actually made a shooting brake version of the iconic front-engined 365 GTB/4 “Daytona,” but one exists anyway. It was commissioned by a customer in the early ‘70s who liked the car but wanted a wagon. He had a UK coachbuilder create the custom body for the one-off, and it’s been somewhat of a legend ever since. Now, that legend is about to grow courtesy of designer Niels van Roij, who is crafting a modern-day one-off homage to the quirky Italian.
The Daytona Shooting Brake Hommage will be built on the chassis of an unnamed Italian two-seat grand tourer that was produced from 2006 until 2013, which sounds to us like a Ferrari 599… but don’t quote us on that. Considerable alterations will be made to the car’s bodywork, naturally, with new bumpers, headlights, tail lights, roofline, and fenders all planned. Even the original Ferrari’s butterfly-style rear windows will be included, though now they will open via remote control. In addition to the significant exterior changes being made to the base car, the interior is also getting the custom treatment, and Niels van Roij Design is inviting fans to follow the entire process along by checking out their various social channels, the links to which can be found on their website.
