Ferrari Daytona Shooting Brake Tribute Rendering Prepares Us for What's Coming

Over the years, we have seen many projects that remained confined to the virtual realm even if they clearly deserved so much more. So, it comes as great consolation when a designer like Niels van Roij gets involved in the rendering scene, because we’re then almost sure that things won’t remain CGI forever.

Granted, it’s a small dose of comfort since Niels van Roij has announced the creation based on this latest render will forever remain a one-off project. Still, it’s entirely befitting to do so. After all, the original inspiration was also a unique creation—the oddly beautiful Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona Shooting Brake.

After recently presenting a “not your average Italian V12 supercar” in the form of the Ferrari Breadvan Hommage, Niels van Roij keeps the same theme for the next challenge. So, we’re basically presented here with the first sketches of an upcoming modern twist on the one-of-one 1972 Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Shooting Brake.

We know the classic coachbuild masterpiece was presented to Luigi Chinetti’s American Ferrari importer Chinetti Motors at the behest of a wealthy real estate developer who wanted something different from his Prancing Horse. But we have no idea who commissioned with Niels van Roij Design this new reincarnation.

Of course, given the fact that we’re expressly told the company “will allow enthusiasts full insight into the design and development through social media,” we have a feeling we’re going to find out more about the new Daytona Shooting Brake Hommage in the days to come.

For now, all we have to go about are a couple of posts. One depicts some archive shots of the original 365 GTB/4 Shooting Brake, while the other showcases the artistic composition of the Hommage model. Naturally, both are embedded below so you can compare them at will.

As for the real deal, the coachbuilder promises a major overhaul of the (yet unidentified) base vehicle that it will modify. We do know the changes include styling modifications to “almost every single body panel” and, of course, the unique butterfly rear windows will be making a grandiose return.
