What happens when you take the Aston Martin Rapide and transform its body so it’s even longer? You essentially get an Aston Martin Rapide wagon, or as Bertone likes to call it, the Jet 2+2.
The Bertone Jet 2+2 joined the original Jet 2 on display at the Geneva Motor Show to celebrate not just Aston Martin’s centenary, but Bertone’s 60 years of association with the British automaker. It’s a shame that the Jet 2+2 isn’t a production model; it’s easily one of the hottest wagons we’ve ever seen.

Its base is from the original Rapide, not the updated Rapide S that made its world premiere in Geneva. Therefore, it’s powered by a 5.9-liter V12 with 470 hp. The one-off Jet 2+2 was commissioned by an Aston Martin collector and was approved by the brand. Compared to the factory Rapide, there’s slightly more headroom and the cabin features a nice blend of aluminum, leather, and wood.
