Shooting-brakes are very hot right now. High end examples from BMW, MB and Ferrari, yes Ferrari, broke cover at this week’s Geneva Motor Show. They represent a high level of utility by way of a handsome, sporty 2-door wrapper. This 1970 example from MG, spotted in Chelsea, is one of the models that helped shape the breed of 2+2 sports cars. The innovative greenhouse, combining the sloping rear window with the rear deck lid, was penned by the legendary design mavens at Pininfarina. It fuses sexy coupe design cues with the functional elements of a wagon. As I’m sure you can agree, they did a good job of making a “station wagon” appear sexier than most. We can only hope all of the European shooting brake debuts going on in Geneva make their way over to U.S. shores in the very near future. Fingers crossed.
