Top Shelf: Rolls-Royce Jonckheere Areodynamic Coupe II Concept by Ugur Shain Design


A lasting tribute to the Art Deco era, the 1935 Rolls-Royce Phantom I Aerodynamic Coupe is a remarkable example of cars being objects of art. Built by Belgium coachmaker Henri Jonckheere and his son, there is also an enigmatic quality to it. In addition to the original car currently on display at Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, there is no known records of it since its factory was destroyed during World War II. 

Now largely a maker of buses, current iteration of Jonckheere’s company asked Turkish designer Ugur Sahin to create a modern interpretation of this classic automobile. Named as Rolls-Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II, it features all of the design elements of the 1935 original, right down to the proportions and its famous “round-door”. But also includes all the modern amenities. Just a rendering at this time, Sahin is negotiating with potential investors to turn this concept into an one-off reality.
