Geneva 2013: the Bertone Jet 2+2

At the Geneva Motorshow today, Bertone revealed their one-off shooting brake based on the Aston Martin Rapide: the Bertone Jet 2+2. Based on the Rapide? Yes indeed, this roomy 4-seater is based on the “old” Rapide, not the Rapide S. But it does have a big mouth similar to Aston Martin’s new S model of the Rapide. If you look closely, you can spot styling elements based on other Astons, like the “gills” at the front and rear lights, both reminding of the One-77.

Rapide S Shooting Brake? No, just no.

The internet is a scary place and sometimes you accidentally come across pictures that you wish you had never seen. This is one of those occasions… Some guy who’s calling himself “Automotive Manipulator”, photoshopped this monstrosity: A Shooting Brake version of the new Aston Martin Rapide S.
