Bertone Jet 2+2 shooting brake concept to debut at Geneva


Italian design firm Bertone plans to unveil a “shooting brake” concept of the Aston Martin Rapide at the Geneva Motor Show next week. The concept “station wagon” is called the Jet 2+2, which is the succession of the 2004 Jet 2 Concept that was based on the Vanquish model.

Unlike the ordinary station wagon, the Bertone Jet 2+2 shooting brake has a sleek profile, broader shoulder line and wheel arches to give a sense of power and sportiness. With a larger and stretched length, it provides more space than the Aston Martin Rapide. As the name suggested, the station wagon features two rows of comfortable seats that are lined with perforated leather and feature a two-tone design, while the rest of the interior is dressed in polished wood and aluminum trim.

The Bertone Jet 2+2 has many of the visual enhancements as the latest Aston Martin Rapide S, such as the aggressive grille and a sleek profile. But the powertrain is based on the older model, which is a 5.9-liter V12 engine producing about 470 horsepower, instead of the 6.0-liter V12 engine.

The new Bertone Jet 2+2 shooting brake concept and 2014 Aston Martin Rapide will debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show on March 5th.
