Rolls-Royce Wraith turns into a stylish station wagon by Carat Duchatelet

Design studio Niels van Roij Design, together with coachbuilder Carat Duchatelet, presented the luxurious Silver Specter Shooting Brake station wagon. The car is based on the British Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe.

We recently stumbled upon a curious Rolls-Royce — the car was parked at a gas station. The fact is that this is the Wraith model, which is made in the station wagon (Shooting Brake). We had no idea where this car came from or who created it.

Now the situation has cleared up and yes, this is not a Rolls-Royce car. This is the brainchild of the tuning studio Carat Duchatelet, as well as the famous design studio Niels van Roij Design. Dubbed the Carat Duchatelet Silver Specter Shooting Brake, the car looks very stylish as the photos show.

The project was apparently built on the basis of the luxury Rolls-Royce Wraith coupe.

The long roof is handcrafted by bodybuilders Carat Duchatelet and designed to look as organic as possible with the body shape of the original Wraith. According to the representatives of the atelier, during the work they were inspired by the classic Shooting Brake (such a designation has station wagons) from the leading British brands of the past decades.

Interior details for this particular build are not offered, but we can see the striking pattern of the upholstery and the level of functionality of the trunk. Luggage rails protrude from the floor and a double pass-through slot at the front provides access between the front and rear sections. By ordering this unusual station wagon, customers have the opportunity to make the interior of the car completely as they want.

This particular Silver Specter was commissioned by the owner of the original Rolls-Royce Wraith who wanted to make a station wagon out of it. This is the first example of the stylish Shooting Brake, but Carat Duchatelet is going to build a total of seven of the same vehicles. Prices for the new product are not mentioned.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote about what the British have made of classic Rolls-Royce electric cars. The British company Lunaz announced that it is transferring the classic Rolls-Royce Phantom V and Silver Cloud to electric traction.
