Shooting Brake – n. a sleek wagon with two doors and sports-car panache (according to The New York Times).
There’s something about the shooting brake body style that seems especially prone to intoxicate the diehard automotive enthusiast – if not the motoring public at large. Our latest taste of shooting brake greatness comes to us by way of a render from Rain Prisk Designs, showing how the latest, sixth-generation Ford Mustang pony car might look were the roof extended aft, past the rear axle, before sweeping dramatically down to meet the rear fascia with which we’re all familiar.
This expert Ford Mustang rendering can be seen on the CarScoops website.
It’s important to note that the Ford Mustang Shooting Brake is only a design exercise; we would be utterly shocked if the automaker ever saw fit to produce a two-door wagon version of the beloved pony car, especially considering the overall poor sales performance of even conventional wagons here in the US.
Nonetheless, it’s a beautiful, praise-worthy reimagination of the Ford Mustang that we’ll take the liberty of drooling over until the day we die – or at least until something even better and more dramatic comes along.
