This unique Silver Spectre Shooting Brake has been styled by the Niels van Roij Design studio, which also supervised the construction process. Based in Utrecht, Holland, Niels van Roij Design has become renowned for its stunning conversions on upmarket chassis, including its Ferrari ‘Breadvan’ homage and Range Rover Adventum coupé. The Silver Spectre project was conceived and overseen by the owner in collaboration with Niels van Roij Design. According to its creator: “The elongated lines signal masterful craftsmanship and exquisite style. A manifestation of Grand Touring in its purest form.”
Carried out by Carat Duchatelet in 2018-2020, this conversion is based on the Rolls-Royce Wraith Gran Turismo coupé, one of the world’s most exclusive and desirable cars from a company unsurpassed in motoring excellence. Intended to be one of seven, this is and will remain the sole example built. Usually such conversions end up adding considerable weight, but the use of carbon fibre for the Spectre’s lengthy roof has meant that this has been kept to a minimum. Also noteworthy is the hand-made ‘infinity starlight’ headliner, a bold statement and showcase of this car’s bespoke qualities. Claimed to be a world’s first, it is a celestial nightscape of fibre-optic strands; the stars fade out towards the rear, giving the impression of an endless starlit sky.
This Wraith was first registered to Rolls-Royce in the UK in January 2016 (it is assumed it was kept as a show car and/or demonstrator) and was later purchased by the current vendor. The car was last serviced in 2018 at 15,147 kilometres by Rolls-Royce München immediately prior to the start of the conversion process, which took some 18 months and 2,500 man-hours to complete.
