Niels van Roij Turned A Ferrari 550 Into This Bespoke ’60s Shooting Brake

Back in 1962, Ferrari unveiled the “Breadvan,” a one-off 250 GT custom intended to compete Le Mans against the up-and-coming 250 GTO. Despite its unusual design, the car’s Kamm Tail proved to be an incredibly efficient piece of aerodynamic engineering. So, while it might have looked like a utilitarian delivery vehicle, it absolutely hauled down the Mulsanne straight.

For its latest work, London-based Neils van Roij Design has decided to honor the aesthetic of the quirky Le Mans car by turning a Ferrari 550 Maranello into something it’s calling the ‘Breadvan Hommage.’ The product of over a year’s worth of labor, it features a full retro redesign made out of a single piece of hand-formed aluminum. At the front, you’ll find a pair of air vents seated betwixt the headlights as well as a clear cutout on the hood — elements which are intended to resemble those from the original car. Around the sides, there’s some plastic window louvers to save weight and a set of 20″ wheels in order to give it a more aggressive stance. Finished off with the iconic boxy rear-end and an interior rich with retro detail, the results is nothing short of astonishing. Click the link below for more.
