Niels Van Roij Design Ferrari Breadvan
The 1962 Ferrari Breadvan might be the Italian automaker’s strangest creation to date, and they only made one of the. Niels van Roij Design was commissioned to create a one-off tribute to the Breadvan, and it’s based on the Ferrari 550 Maranello. First, the team replaced the front bumper, air vents, and then added a domed hood. The roof line looks flat at first glance, but as you get closer to the shooting brake-style rear, it breaks at a near-90-degree angle. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.



The interior features carbon fiber racing seats covered in blue upholstery, while milled aluminum switches add a touch of style. Interior trim pieces have been given a quilted black leather and hand-beaten aluminum trim makeover for a 1960s race-inspired feel. There have been no upgrades to the naturally-aspirated, 5.5L V8 generating 478 horsepower and 419 pound-feet of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Suspension wise, a set of custom Koni shocks keep the ride smooth, even at the track.

We see it as a great privilege that we can honor the Breadvan through this Homage commission. It is a complex task to translate the essence of the legendary original into a contemporary design. We intend to be inspired by the original, but will ensure we are not limited by it in our creativity,” said Van Roij.
