Forget about “regular” Rolls-Royce. If individuality and exclusivity as important as showing off how much money you have, then you ought to take a look at the Rolls-Royce Silver Spectre Shooting Brake.
But don’t go digging around Rolls-Royce Motors website because, this ain’t the handiwork of British luxury marque. It is a custom work by Dutch-based custom car builder, Niels Van Roij Design.
Silver Spectre started its life as a Wraith. The spirit of the Wraith remains, but only before the A pillars. Anything after, are all custom job – from the single-piece carbon fiber composite roof to the elongated custom side glass and a lift gate.
Silver Spectre answers the question of “what if the Wraith is a shooting brake?” Personally, I think it looks pretty awesome. Not jaw-dropping by any means, but it sure felt like it is meant to be (a shooting brake).
And it has the power to match the new found body (or partial body?). It is drive forth by a 6.6L V12 motor that now produces 700 horses and turns out 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque as opposed to the stock 624 HP and 605 lb-ft.
But I am sure you won’t pick this up for the power it possessed. Just look at the side profile. It’s super sleek.
As expected, the interior is suitably luxuriously appointed. There are individual rear seats, fiber-optic starlight headliner that stretches to the rear, leather-lined rear compartment – just to point out a few.
The interior can be further individually kitted, but here’s the thing. If you want one, you ought to act it FAST. Because, the Rolls-Royce Silver Spectre Shooting Brake is strictly limited to just 7 examples worldwide.
Last check, seven units are definitely not enough go around for the 13 million millionaires or high-net-worth individual in the world.
