Click above for full gallery of this Rolls-Royce Camargue Custom Falconry Sporting Vehicle

This unholy marriage of a Rolls-Royce and possibly a Jeepster is the product of Swiss mad-scientist Franco Sbarro. Apparently, it was commissioned by an Arab sheik (natch) who was a huge fan of falconry. While the chassis and amenities remain, the doors have been removed, the windshield drops down to give a clear view of the road ahead, and a special falconer's platform has been built into the trunk area that extends out to provide an elevated place to stand on.

What started out as a 1978 Rolls-Royce Camargue, has turned into a butch Fiat Jolly in 1980. Dubbed the "Rolls-Royce Camargue Custom Falconry Sporting Vehicle," it is also referred to as "Hunting Car of His Royal High Ness," or just "Hunting Car" or "Falconry sporting vehicle." The price of the conversion was about twice what it cost new (£83,122), so figure around $400,000 in 1980 prices, for this one-off Roller.

      I wonder what condition his Royal "High" Ness was in when he thought this up...

      That may be the fugliest thing I've seen in a very long time.

      Pardon me, while I poke out my mind's eye.

      At least it has a point. The new ones have little starlight holes in the headliner.

      That's awesome!

      I generally keep 40-50% of my Rolls Royces falconry prepped.

      What has been seen cannot be unseen.

      Further evidence of the inverse correlation between wealth and good taste.

      (James Glickenhaus and his Pininfarina P4/5 would, of course, be statistical outliers)

      I think it's an improvement
