Way back in 2004 Bertone created a one-off concept called the Jet 2, a shooting brake based on the Aston Martin Vanquish. For this year’s Geneva, the Italian styling house is doing it again, but this time it has used the four-door Rapide to create the Jet 2+2. Employing a model whose lines were more readily made for shooting brake adaptation has resulted in a vehicle that we find far better looking than its predecessor.
There’s a 470-horsepower V12 (not the 550 HP V12 from the Rapide S, sadly) under the hood, a bespoke interior with two-tone leather, a stretched and heightened rear quarter for more headroom and luggage room, and fold-flat rear seats. An LED strip connects the taillights across the wide tailgate.
it certainly looks like a winner from every angle and makes a worthy competitor for the upcoming Porsche Panamera SportsTourer, so it’s quite of a disappointment that it’s only a one-off project. It will take the floor in Geneva along with the Rapide S.
