To be Aston's flagship model

A new report involving the Bertone Jet 2+2 says the car is about to enter limited production.

Basically a shooting brake variant of the Aston Martine Rapide, the Bertone Jet 2+2 made its public debut in March at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. At that time it remained a one-off for a special Bertone customer, but apparently things have changed as a small production run is seriously taken into consideration.

If green-lighted, the Rapide Shooting Brake will be Aston Martin's flagship model so expect a steep price tag to match the exclusivity. Autocar says that if production will be under ten units then Bertone will probably make them at their headquarters outside Turin, but if more than ten are planned then most likely Aston Martin will be in charge of building them at Gaydon.

The same source indicates Aston Martin will want to sell it under the "Rapide Shooting Brake" moniker.

Finally, fantastic decision and proper range extension from Aston! For me it will be a most desirable Shooting Brake. I also guess that the demand will overcome the decision to make a small limited number and I wellcome this! Also looking forward to see the next Rapide, maybe with side sills and the back in the fashion of the latest DB9 and updated center console and instrument cluster. A bit more rear headroom and leg space and lower central console wouldn't hurt either...
