With all of the new automotive releases from luxury manufacturers over the past few weeks, there’s been a major demographic overlooked: our canine friends.
Yes, there’s a stunning 660 hp coming from the Ferrari 488 GTB, McLaren’s 675LT will lead the marque’s Super Series and the Bentley Bentayga can climb massive sand dunes, but where is the car designed for bringing man’s best friend along for a ride in the lap of luxury?
London-based design studio Niels van Roij offers up a solution for just that problem. It’s been dubbed the Rolls-Royce Shooting Brake, and seems to draw heavy inspiration from the Wraith with a strong assertion of modern minimalism in its design. There’s room for the driver and one passenger in the front, and an extended rear wheel base to provide plenty of room for Fido. The website for the design studio shows that there’s even a dog walk extending from the rear to between the two front seats.
The video above, uploaded by the design studio to YouTube Jan. 30, takes a surreal and deep look into the concept of deconstructed minimalism before providing a glimpse of this new design’s exterior. It’s unique, to say the least.
Give it a watch, and let us know what you think of this concept in the comments below.
