There is something sublimely humble and useful about a Rolls-Royce Shooting Brake woody. The proportions are all about decadent luxury, with a huge dash of usefulness in the giant trunk making this a true grand tourer -- in a family-plus-dogs-plus-luggage sense!
So why a woody Rolls?
The wood cabin and wagon shape meant it was possible to make just a few examples - and skip the huge metal stamping investments that a steel cabin would require.
The low and lean style of this ultra-long Phantom II Shooting Brake defined elegant family travel for many decades to come.
