Geneva 2013: Bertone Jet 2+2 Is A Shapely Aston Martin Wagon


Unveiled at this week’s Geneva motor show was the Bertone Jet 2+2 shooting brake, a one-off shooting brake based on the Aston Martin Rapide and crafted with help from the famed Italian coachbuilder. The two companies have a 60-year history of working together, and the Jet 2+2 is the latest product of that collaboration.

As the name states, the Jet 2+2 seats four passengers, who are cocooned in a four-door hatch body based on the Rapide sedan. The Jet 2+2 reportedly provides more headroom than the Rapide, and also boasts bespoke materials. In addition to its unique silhouette and rear end, the Jet 2+2 showcases a few styling differences compared to the Rapide. The front bumper, for example, features air vents at the outer edges. Out back, Bertone has added thin vertical air slits to the bumpers and boomerang-style taillights connected by a red strip, similar to the One-77 supercar.

The Jet 2+2 is powered by the Rapide’s 6.0-liter V-12 engine, tuned to produce 470 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. For now, it remains a one-off vehicle for a private collector who approached the companies with the project. That said, should it spawn a production version to take on the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo? Tell us in the comments below.

This has to stop. If you want a Panamera, just buy one. But don't make an already beautiful car look like a Mazda 3

Looks like another station wagon!

Absolutely beautiful. Too bad it's just a one-off, because a car like this would be great to own...

This is a FAR BETTER idea for a company like Aston Martin than a sports utility vehicle is for Bentley.
Terence Stawski
