At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Italian design and coachbuilding firm Bertone will bring a one-off shooting brake concept version of the Aston Martin Rapide. As you may know already, Aston Martin recently released the Rapide S, but for those who want more, the Bertone Concept is the car for them, although only one will be built.
The Aston Martin Rapide Concept is known as the Bertone Jet 2+2 and was created for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in order to celebrate celebrate both Aston’s centenary and 60 years of collaborations between the British sports car manufacturer and Bertone.
The Jet 2+2 Concept was already commissioned by an Aston Martin collector and it is powered by the 5.9-liter V12 engine from the current Rapide delivering 470 hp. Still, we don’t get it why the more potent version of the V12 engine (550 hp) found on the Rapide S is not found on the Jet 2+2 Concept.
Anyway, as you can see from the photos, the biggest change found on the Jet 2+2 Concept is the by an Aston Martin collector. What we do like about the rear end is that the concept car comes with a full-length LED light strip inspired by the Aston Martin One-77. Inside, the vehicle offers four individual seats and the headroom is increased for rear passengers due to the switch in bodystyle. The good news is that the two rear seats fold flat and can be covered by a sliding cover to offer more luggage space.
