Aston Martin Rapide Shooting Brake, World Premiere at Geneva Motor Show

Bertone will present Aston Martin Rapide Shooting Brake concept this year at the Geneva Motor Show, a luxury break created to celebrate 60 years of cooperation with the British manufacturer. Its origins were not found until today and no precise definition can be attributed even to this moment.

However, many say it looks as a break-coupe, others, as a coupe-break. But leaving behind any kind of debate about categorization: In short, style, sophistication and elegance to the fullest, to which we add an unexpected dose of practicality, delivered in the company of a considerably more spacious interior (especially for rear seat occupants).

The new Aston Martin Rapide Shooting Brake has been known as Jet 2+2, as a continuation of an earlier concept, unveiled in 2004, called Jet 2 and built on the last Rapide variant. Bertone designers have tried not to change any body dimensions or chassis and still managed to create a superb Aston Martin as seen in the photos below.

We don’t have any Jet 2+2 technical details for now, but most likely we will see the “old” 12-cylinder V engine of six liters. Being just a concept car – and also an anniversary car, which celebrates 60 years of collaboration between British manufacturer of automobiles and famous Italian design house, the new Aston Martin Bertone Jet 2 +2 does not need a lot of technical specs to impress.

As all Aston Martin cars, the front of the car still looks similar to the ones seen before. Overall, the new Aston Martin Shooting Brake comes only with a new profile and a new rear design. There, taillights were extended by Bertone and now cover the entire length of the tailgate, also adding LED lights for better customization.

Now the most amazing part, the interior. Aston Martin Rapide Shooting Brake comes with a 2+2 configuration, with individual seats, with unique wooden and aluminum inserts and also a button to flip the rear seat. Everything looks amazing and we hope the series version will have the same design!
