Published: Feb 25, 2013
Description: There’s a grand tradition to British sportscars remade by Italian coachbuilders, and every once in a while the finest of both countries team up for a deliciously-styled shooting brake. One of the mor...

I was hoping for something big like a new mantide but this will work I guess
Demid Petrov Feb 26, 2013
Beautiful! Aston's making the most beautiful cars on our planet! In my opinion!
Graham Young Feb 26, 2013
Freaking awesome I just drooled all of my brand-new shirt
Author Norman R. Colson Feb 25, 2013
I'm good give me a regular Aston Martin please not this shooting brake crap! I'm tired of this
Dhruva Daripalli Feb 25, 2013
I think I just lost my virginity.
Jt Collier Feb 25, 2013
looks better than the rendering a while back. very well executed
Mustafa Alshekhly Feb 25, 2013
What the fuck is this Have those people lost their mind
Clinton Burger Feb 25, 2013
Damnit Facundo, I have to agree with you..
Facundo Planas Martinelli Feb 25, 2013
Not fan of shooting brakes, but I have to accept this one is very well executed
Jon Strahs Feb 25, 2013
An Aston hatchback doesn't quite do it for me. The back half detracts from the whole thing imo
Drew Humphrey Feb 25, 2013
Those lines are beautiful.
Jean Paul Soto Feb 25, 2013
Rapide meets the new Panamera concept style wise
Kyle Rawn Feb 25, 2013
This really is a nice automobile.
Alex Bouckley Feb 25, 2013
I like this a lot
Luke Purdy Feb 25, 2013
This looks awesome
Nicolas Briere Feb 25, 2013
Looks kind of cool
Description: Back in 1961, Bertone (then under the direction of Giorgetto Giugiaro) rebodied an Aston DB4 GT and labeled it the Jet. Its steeply raked roofline distinguished it from the shooting-brake category, bu...

Description: Rather than starting with that new 550-horsepower model, the Bertone Jet 2+2 is based on the existing 470hp Rapide. The biggest difference, of course, is the extended roofline, with an angled tailgate...

Number one
Sam Coppinger Feb 26, 2013
Looks fantastic, but it'd be cooler as a proper shooting brake, ie with 2 doors
Jacob Burford Feb 25, 2013
This is gorgeous for a wagon! Well done Bertone!
Jacob Burford Feb 25, 2013
@Chris Are you blind! Aston Martins gross! We like them because they make the best looking and best GT cars on the planet!
Bala Uncc Feb 25, 2013
The front looks like the new ford fusion:) sarcastic
Chris Friend Feb 25, 2013
Astons are like the (Old) Volvo of the upscale market. They are just so boring and gross, and this is actually pretty ugly. I know some like them (I don't see how) but eugh, I wouldn't want one, ever.
Nick ReDavid Feb 25, 2013
Best looking wagon I've ever seen
Oscar Galvan Feb 25, 2013
This looks great
Jake Dula Feb 25, 2013
@Kyle, honestly dude, what's the big deal? No matter how many Aston-looking cars are styled it doesn't change the fact that Astons are gorgeous and miles more beautiful than any so-called "knock off". I don't understand what people are so worried about. Personally I'm really happy to see a mid-size sedan with a body style approaching Aston levels of beauty. A good looking Fusion can be enjoyed eve...
Taylor Rosello Feb 25, 2013
It's not bad at all! Beautiful :)
Kyle Rawn Feb 25, 2013
If they want to make a new GT or whatever with that grille, that's fine.
Kyle Rawn Feb 25, 2013
Oh sorry, whatever fusion Taurus blah. And yes, I know that Ford owns the design, I'm just saying it is VW making the Beetle look like a Gallardo. It shouldn't happen. Ford shouldn't ruin the design by putting it on their base cars.
Alex Bouckley Feb 25, 2013
And honestly, the Fusion looks pretty good too
Stephen Cobbs Feb 25, 2013
@Kyle. Try Fusions. Ford isnt destroying the design. They used to own Aston, same designers. I dont know about you but I can tell the difference betweeen a Fusion and a Rapide.
Matt Piccolo Feb 25, 2013
Not bad. Would rather the sedan though
Kyle Rawn Feb 25, 2013
@petro, it's not that design is getting old, it's that Ford is destroying the look with their stupid Tauruses.
Adam Thomson Feb 25, 2013
I like it actually!
Luke Purdy Feb 25, 2013
Great design
Petro Maalouf Feb 25, 2013
I don't hate aston , i like their designs but this front should not be used anymore cz the car look little bit old with it
Adam Thomson Feb 25, 2013
Aston hatchback lol!
Jordan Smith Feb 25, 2013
This is really well done. I like.
Cory Allen Feb 25, 2013
I like it.
Graham Young Feb 26, 2013
Makes me want to get super rich and have another kid
Jacob Burford Feb 25, 2013
That rear works out very well!
Cindy Ngo Feb 25, 2013
Looks different then the shooting brake
Peter Mark Gacek Feb 25, 2013
Well Bertone probably started this project well before Aston mentioned the Rapide S. Plus I wouldn't doubt some high profile customer would take their Rapide S and have Bertone make flippy floppy with it.
Kristian Albertsen Feb 25, 2013
I think it looks very cool...
David Jefferis Feb 25, 2013
Excuse me, I'm drooling. IWOOT.
Raj Cj Feb 25, 2013
It's way better then Porsche panamera
Oscar Galvan Feb 25, 2013
This is a lot better looking than the Porsche
Joe Grant Feb 25, 2013
Aston, please acknowledge this!
Joshua Rutkowski Feb 25, 2013
Dem One-77 lights.
Chris Gaines Feb 25, 2013
take that porsche
Alex Bouckley Feb 25, 2013
I like the One-77 tail lights
Luke Purdy Feb 25, 2013
I really like this rear
Jordan Smith Feb 25, 2013
That back end looks awesome.
Nicolas Briere Feb 25, 2013
I agree
Zaire Wilkins Feb 25, 2013
Very elegant. But i think they should have waited to get their hands on the 550hp rapide S
Jon Wheel Feb 26, 2013
@Peter wat
Peter Mark Gacek Feb 25, 2013
Aston Martin= Bentley + TVR/Lotus
Gray Conron Feb 25, 2013
Beige kills it.
Jake Dula Feb 25, 2013
Well that's cuz Aston isn't into luxury cars. It's sort of GT car + sportscar + luxury + art = Aston Martin.
Drew Humphrey Feb 25, 2013
IMO it shouldn't have racing seats for a luxury car
Matt Piccolo Feb 25, 2013
Seats look sick
Nicolas Briere Feb 25, 2013
Interior looks like luxurious racing seats
