Aston Martin and styling house Bertone have revealed the result of their collaboration today, in the form of the Jet 2+2 wagonette.
The latest in a growing crowd of sleek 'shooting brake' models, the Jet 2+2 has one extra trick: unlike many of its 'rivals', this Aston is no mere concept.
Based on the Rapide four-door coupe, the Jet 2+2 is a "strict one-off" wagon built for a collector, with the approval of Aston Martin.
Importantly for both brands, the debut of the Jet 2+2 comes as part of the celebrations for Aston Martin's 100th birthday, and the 60th anniversary of collaboration with Bertone.
The Jet's shooting brake design retains the 2+2 seating of the Rapide, but offers more headroom for rear passengers. The rear seats can also fold flat to make the most of the wagon storage.
Bertone has gifted the Jet with the updated styling of the recently launched Rapide S, but it's the older Rapide model that provides power for this new wagon.
In the Jet, the 6.0 litre V12 delivers 350kW of power and 600Nm of torque, compared to the 410kW/620Nm version powering the Rapide S.
We suspect the Jet's buyer doesn't mind the difference.
Watch for the Jet 2+2 to debut at next month's Geneva Motor Show.
