Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II | Ugur Sahin

Ugur Sahin Design is a Dutch company founded in 2007 which specialises in bespoke coachbuilt automobiles. Their fully-functional Soleil ANADI prototype, which was a development of their Chevrolet Corvette Z03 concept, was unveiled at the Top Marques Monaco show last year, so they have proven experience in transforming slick digital models into vehicles you can actually get in and drive.

The absurdly long-named Ugur Sahin Design Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II is a homage to the original Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe I, which was built in Belgium by Henri Jonckheere and his son Joseph in 1935. Sadly the car was destroyed during WW2. Later Jonckheere went on to make a name for themselves across Europe as manufacturers of bodywork for both cars and buses. Today the company still exists as VDL Jonckheere.

Ugur Sahin Design (USD) was tasked by VDL Jonckheere to design a car which was a modern reinterpretation of the original vehicle. According to USD the concept was put together with the crucial idea of respect for the 77 year old design. That meant the designers were careful to retain the essence of the original, while also making sure to balance it with modern touches which bring it into the 21st century.

The proportions of the USD Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II are almost identical to that of the 1935 car. But to make sure it doesn’t look dated they’ve freshened it up with modern LED lighting, streamlined the bodywork, and minimized extraneous trim. Currently USD are in talks with potential investors interested in helping turn the Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II into reality as a one-off ultra-luxurious vehicle.
