looking at Rolls Royce’s somewhat squarish design, we bet you didn’t think it has a much roundish past. well, it almost did and that very rounded past was the Jonckheere’s Rolls Royce Phantom I Aerodynamic Coupe. obviously, the car didn’t make it to the production and though the original car survived the World War II, it is unfortunate that the records did not and therefore, details of who commissioned or designed the original car remains a mystery up to this day. anyway, to cut long story short, Turkish designer Ugur Sahin was commissioned by VDL Jonckheere to reinterpret this iconic car and the result, the Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II, is nothing short of spectacular. sticking closely to the 1930s Jonckheere-built example, Ugur Sahin has successfully created a beautiful coupe that adopts a contemporary shape and styling, while maintaining a close lineage to the iconic coupe without looking dated. adhering to the lines and proportions of its predecessor, this reborn icon features a colossal grill that pays homage to Rolls Royce history, a similarly bold rear end and radical round doors that were unique to the original 1935 car. honestly, those round doors are pretty dope and needless to say, we are loving them. the Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II by Ugur Sahin is all but a concept at this stage with no details on hard specifications but the designer is calling on potential investors and parties to create a one-off example in near future. check out some beautiful renders after the break.
