It’s based on a 550 Maranello, but with a fully customised body and a bespoke interior.

The spirit of the 1962 Ferrari 250 GT SWB Breadvan is alive and well nearly six decades later as coachbuilder Niels van Roij Design is unveiling a modern tribute. Originally announced in early 2019, the one-off prancing horse with a boxy backside has been completed after transforming a 550 Maranello into a retro-flavoured shooting brake.

Much like in the glory days of coachbuilding, the Breadvan Hommage’s body was hand-beaten to obtain the final shape hearkening back to the Le Mans racer of the early 1960s when it was dubbed the “La Camionnette” (little truck) or “Breadvan.” The similarities continue at the front where the one-off Prancing Horse boasts dual air vents moulded after those of the original Breadvan.
