About 24 hours ago, we shared an interesting spy video showing a rather odd Rolls-Royce test prototype. The mysterious test car had tons of camouflage, but it was easily recognizable as some sort of wagon. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Rolls is working on a shooting brake, but it is a possible option.
Apparently, the spy video inspired artist Wagen Volk to create a unique one-off based on the Wraith. It’s basically a Wraith Shooting Brake with a lot of inspiration from the Cullinan. We have to admit that this is one of the most professional renderings we have seen in recent weeks.
If you take a closer look at the rear and compare it with yesterday’s test prototype, you’ll notice there’s a striking resemblance between the two. The shape of the rear lights is almost 100% and even the small spoiler attached to the tailgate is very similar. In terms of size, the rendering is also very close to the real prototype.
The larger wheels and the plastic coating around the wheel arches and side skirts give this virtual vehicle an adventurous stance that, again, strongly reminds us of the Cullinan. However, from the line between the doors and side windows above, this is pretty much a traditional shooting brake with a sloped roofline and rear windows. One feature we particularly like is the frameless design of the front door windows.
We don’t know if Rolls is actually developing a single model or if the test prototype was simply used as a test bed. However, if British society has anything close to this in mind, we are all there. For us, it’s the best of both worlds – convenience and luxury.
