Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe II








































































































































Turkish automotive designer Ugur Sahin recently created an updated and futuristic version of the Rolls-Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe originally created back in 1935. It features all of the design elements of the original black beauty, right down to the proportions and its famous "round-door".

The main goal of this design was to respectfully reinterpret the original Rolls Royce Jonckheere Aerodynamic Coupe I, which was built in Belgium by Henri Jonckheere and his son Joseph Jonckheere in 1935. Unfortunately the "Jonckheere Works" was destroyed during WW2 and no records survived, so who commissioned or designed the original car remains a mystery. They were well known throughout Europe for making bodies on both cars and busses. The later of which is still in production today as VDL Jonckheere. UgurSahinDesign was assigned by VDL Jonckheere to honor its coachbuilding history through a reinterpretation of the original car which currently is in the possession of the California-based Peterson Museum.
