While SUVs and crossovers are all the rage in today’s automotive world, it wasn’t long ago that station wagons and shooting brakes were the popular options. Although there are a limited number of wagons and shooting brakes on the market, it hasn’t stopped some digital artists from creating new ideas.
For those who aren’t familiar with the difference between a station wagon (or estate) and a shooting brake is the number of doors the vehicle features. A wagon features a four-door layout and a shooting brake feature a two-door layout, typically allowing the vehicle to look more coupe-like.
One of the best-looking coupes available for sale in North America is the 2022 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye. With its retro muscle-car looks, the big Dodge coupe continues to grow in popularity despite it being 15 years old.
Our good friend and creative genius Oscar Vargas (@wb.artist20), has taken a Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and turned it into a shooting brake. The concept even features a GMC Envoy XUV-like retracting roof to allow it to carry taller items (like a tool chest and an engine hoist).
We love the creative thinking outside the traditional coupe design. Especially if it has a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI HELLCAT H.O. V8 under the hood. The design makes the 797 horsepower coupe, completely usable for most everyday activities.
