Silver Spectre is the shooting brake Rolls-Royce should have built
Belgian coachbuilder Carat Duchatelet has turned the Rolls-Royce Wraith into a glorious shooting brake. The Silver Spectre is a luxurious long-roof creation that’s only missing a brace of Purdeys in the trunk.
A swathe of chrome follows the sweeping lines of the roof and rear and also does wonders to visibly reduce the heft of the additional metalwork, giving the Silver Spectre the sleek profile that defines any shooting brake.
Carat Duchatelet hasn’t shown the interior, aside from the all-important extended cargo area, which features a fetching two-tone design echoing the exterior. Chrome luggage rails are a classic touch.
No details of any mechanical changes have been revealed, but the standard $330,000 Wraith’s 624 hp V-12 should be ample to get to any grouse moor.
Carat Duchatelet has just delivered its first customer car and says that a total of seven Silver Spectres will be built. No prices have been revealed, but given that the company’s existing clientele includes some 40 heads of state and royal families around the world, money is likely no object for those on the list.
