Nice? No, but very special. The 600 hp strong V8 Vantage Shooting Brake was developed and built by Roos Engineering. In doing so, the Swiss company received the full cooperation of Aston Martin.

A joke from the Toyota designers in Australia. And it is still built. The prototype of the GT86 Shooting Brake is fully functional and has even been tested by Toyota. Were there perhaps production plans?
The inspiration for the beautiful Volvo 480 and C30. With the 1800ES, Volvo tried to maintain interest in the outdated 1800. In the end, more than 8,000 were produced between 1971 and 1973.
