Rolls-Royce Jonckheere Is Like A Retro Roller Maybach Exelero

Only problem is, it ain't real. Yet.

The Maybach Exelero has always been one of our favorite examples of just how extreme the custom car world can get—a completely rebodied, one-of-a-kind two-door Maybach with a pumped-up engine that sold for a reported $8 million when Birdman picked it up last year. There’s nothing stopping somebody from building another one…except for the fact that Mercedes-Benz doesn’t make Maybachs anymore. But luckily, Rolls-Royce is still around—and if you liked the Exelero, designer Ugur Sahin has a dope design that’s perfect for anyone looking to Exelero a Roller.

Called the Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II, the whip is inspired by a classic one-off Roller from 1935 called the “Round Door” Rolls-Royce Phantom I Aerodynamic Coupe, but with a much more modern twist. For now, it’s just a design concept, but Sahin is supposedly in talks with some rich people out there interested in making it a reality. We think one of these, based off a Phantom Coupe (and fitted with a motor pumping out an Exelero-beating 710 horsepower, of course), would be the king of baller rides—so if you’re looking for a one-off luxury whip and price is really, really no object, we say let Sahin know. We can’t swing it, so we’ll just lust over the Jonckheere for a while from here. [Shout-out to Autoblog!]
