Built for a wealthy enthusiast and driven by Sutcliffe, the Aston Martin Rapide-based Bertone Jet 2+2 Shooting Brake is a strict one-off. But don't think its a hacked-about trailer queen - this perfectly-formed machine is so complete, Aston are considering a small production run.

I guess Steve hasn't watched the hatchet jobs the Yanks do to cars,they turn cars into oddities in a few weeks,heard of Boyd Coddington?,America's best known car customiser,he turns out things like this too.

Died about 5 years ago, and much as I liked him, comparing him to Bertone is a bit of a leap.

What was getting at was, that, the short time from concept too on the road ,isn't that unusual,of course i wouldn't compare Bertone with Boyd Coddington.

I like Steve's simple and elegant looking wristwatch - who's the manufacture? Oh and a nice car too!

Why on earth would anyone pay that kind of money for a car that is "70% Rapide" and doesn't feel that much different to drive from the Rapide?  This is one of the most rediculous things I've seen.  Even if I was a trillionaire I wouldn't waste my money on this.

When a fan of a brand happens to be rich, then to that person choices that logically appear not sound, may appear a fine idea indeed.

At least this is a really pretty car. I suspect the owner, would be happy if Aston actually makes copies. Being a brand fan after all.

Still having trouble steering cars accurately eh, Steve?

Despite your trepidation-induced low speed, you still seem to keep crossing over the centre line all the time.

Yes Aston and Bertone will proberly build a shooting-break . However it will look nothing like the JET 2+2. This is because of clauses in the build contract which states the JET 2+2 will remain a one off unique car.  Not a prototype nor a concept but a full production car with a build of one! There is also a clause that both Customer and Bertone must agree what parts of the JET 2+2 design detail will be allowed to be used.

I should know I am the customer

Aston Martin, do it  . . .  just DO IT . . .  please, put it into series production. And, not just for the increased rear space/headroom  Smile

If necessary, production could even be sub-contracted to Bertone!
