Aston Martin Rapide Shooting Brake Headed to Geneva Motor Show

Taking the functionality of the Rapide luxury sports saloon to the next-level, a wagon, or “shooting brake” version of the Aston Martin sedan will debut at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

The car is not, however, an official model in the Aston Martin product lineup, though it does have the brand’s blessing. Rather, it’s a one-off crafted by Italian coachbuilder Bertone. To be called the Jet 2+2, it is part of the brand’s 60th anniversary celebrations and follows the original Jet 2 (a shooting brake version of the Vanquish), which arrives on the scene in 2004.

Power will reportedly come from a 470 hp version of the brand’s 5.9-liter V12 engine, rather than the more powerful 550 hp version that just debuted in the Rapide S. This comes despite the fact that the concept clearly displays the new model’s more pronounced grille.

A unique four-seater, the rear now boasts more headroom, while both second row seats can also be folded flat to create an expansive cargo area.
