Edit: Tarkennuksena vielä, perustin ketjun mielessä Ei ammattikäyttöön tarkoitetut farmariautot, joita ei tavan tallaaja ole uutena voinut suoraan kaupasta ostaa. Mites tälläinen? Aina ollut jonkunlainen fetissi erikoisiin farmareihin. On ne sitten tehtaan piensarjoja tai jonkun koripajan / kotitarvetoteuttajan tekosia. Monesta on tullut luettua ja monta netissä bongattua, mutta eihän ne mieleen jää. Ehkä yhtenä erikoisimmista / cooleimmista Aston Martinien Shooting Braket 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Shooting Brake The story goes that one day in the early 1960s, David Brown, chairman of Aston Martin, “entered a board meeting at which some of his engineers were in attendance, plunked his hunting dog down on the table and said, ‘Build me something for him to sit in.’” Brown, who made a fortune building tractors during World War II, had become the quintessential English gentleman, racing horses, playing polo and shooting grouse, and wanted a vehicle he could use on his estate for country pursuits. In 1947 he’d seen a classified advertisement in The Times of London offering a “High Class Motor Business” for sale, and subsequently acquired Aston Martin for £20,500. He then had the company’s now legendary series of ‘DB’ cars, beginning with the DB2 in 1950, named after him using his initials. At the time of Brown’s (possibly apocryphal) meeting with his board, the company was busy building its stunningly successful new DB5, which debuted in 1963 and then achieved immediate icon status as Sean Connery / James Bond’s car in 1964’s Goldfinger. The factory was in fact too busy to build Brown’s bespoke “shooting brake” – in essence an elongated version of the luxurious grand tourer with a hatchback and plenty of cargo space for guns, dogs and polo gear. The term shooting brake derived from a type of horse-drawn carriage called a “brake” that was used by the likes of the Prince of Wales on shooting parties in the 1890s, which subsequently evolved into a motorized vehicle. Originally it was distinguished from the station wagon or “estate” car by having only two doors, a much more rakish profile.
