Bentley considering a shooting brake model

At the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera unveiled a Bentley Continental-based station wagon – better known to luxury automakers as “shooting brake.” Carrozzeria will produce only 20 units of the shooting brake, each going for around $805,000 a pop.

However, if you’re patient Bentley might provide its own shooting brake model, which will probably cost a lot less than $800,000. Speaking at the launch of the Bentley Mulsanne, Stuart McCullough, VW Board Member in charge of Bentley, said that the idea of doing a shooting brake is not out of the question.

“We have an idea in the back of our minds that we may yet bring to market,” McCullough said. He said that the designers have been messing around with the idea and Bentley’s version goes “a lot further” than the Carrozzeria concept.

Don’t get your hopes up too high though. We don’t expect to see an official Bentley shooting brake anytime soon.
