Aston Martin Rapide shooting-brake Bertone

A dream sports car to celebrate a double historical anniversary. At the International Car Show of Geneva, Bertone celebrates the Aston Martin centenary and Sixty years of cooperation between the Italian Company and the prestigious English Brand presenting an interpretation of the Aston Martin Rapide. It is a luxurious and refined shooting-brake realized as a one-off vehicle, keeping unchanged the mechanical engineering of the original model (6 litres V 12 cylinders engine 476 HP), combining a stretched and muscular car body and a functional use of the hatchback.

The Rapide Bertone was commissioned by an Aston Martin collector who took part in person in the whole development of the project, from the first phases of the style research to the manufacture of the car in the workshop, choosing the bodywork paint as well as the leather trimming and the cockpit upholstery.

The car was manufactured by “Bertone Officina” (Bertone Workshop), the new company department organized as a high fashion atelier, completely designed for the production of custom-built models coherently integrating in the historical tradition of Bertone. That means a “tailor made” service for special customers, but also an example of how Bertone could help the manufacturers to vary their own range making “custom-built” cars, exactly as they made in the Fifties and Sixties, with all the standards of quality and safety of a modern car manufacturer.
