Bertone has updated its Vanquish-based Jet 2 shooting brake for the Geneva motor show

The Aston Rapide-based Bertone Jet 2+2 has been joined at the Geneva motor show by an updated version of the Vanquish-based Jet 2 concept car, first seen in 2004.

The revised Jet 2 is based on the previous-generation Vanquish’s mechanicals but has been updated to feature the all-new model’s design in a shooting brake body style.

This new version of the Jet 2 is the personal car of Lilli Bertone, the firm’s president. As well as the updated design, the Jet has been given a new colour and more luxurious trim.

Unlike the Vanquish on which it is based, the Jet 2 is a true four-seater thanks to the extra cabin space afforded by its 210mm increase in length.

I missed the Jet2 concept when it first came out - was it the inspiration for Ferrari's FF or did Bertone do both?
