Carat Duchatelet Silver Spectre Wraith Shooting Brake

Carat Duchatelet Converts Rolls-Royce Wraith Into Epic Shooting Brake

Carat Duchatelet unveils its latest creation based on a Rolls-Royce Wraith transformed into a Shooting Brake.

HISTORY OF PULLING BRAKES
The term shooting brake is full of heritage, it originates from
19th century England.
A brake was a large carriage without a body used to
training young horses.
When firing, the rear passengers were seated facing
face with their hunting dogs and their weapons.
During the 1920s and 1930s, premium cars were
converted into luxury transport vehicles for aristocrat
hunters.

From the 1950s the shooting brake evolved into a bespoke luxury sports car, mainly a two-door coupe, with station wagon
capabilities for carrying firearms and hunting trophies.
In 2019, this heritage will come alive with the exclusive SILVER SPECTER SHOOTING BRAKE.

COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE BOSS, THE DESIGNER NIELS VAN ROIJ AND THE FAMOUS MASTER
COACHBUILDER CARAT DUCHATELET

The design of Silver Specter Shooting Brake was born from a personal collaboration. Above all, an authentic partnership
between the patron and the team Niels van Roij Design & Carat Duchatelet.
One day, the proud owner of a Rolls-Royce Wraith asked designer Niels van Roij to research a theme for his already
exclusive car. While the shooting brake concept was quickly validated, the choice of the bodybuilder to design the
planning and building by hand was obvious: who other than the famous master coachbuilder Carat Duchatelet with his 50-
years of experience designing and producing some of the most exclusive cars on the planet?
Niels van Roij Design in collaboration with the Carat Duchatelet team have designed a unique bespoke shooting brake conversion.
