Aston Martin Bertone Jet 2+2 2014
Bertone’s final masterpiece for sale, along with the moulds and tooling to add to one-off Aston Martin.
Aston Martin presented at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the spectacular Aston Martin Bertone Jet 2+2. This one-off build was commissioned by a collector named Barry Weir. The original Aston Martin DB4 GT Bertone Jet was launched back in 1961; only 1 was built. In 2004 Aston Martin presented a "Jet 2" showcase but this car was never completed. The successor, the "Jet 2+2" was based on the modern Aston Martin Rapide. Though the gen 2 was received so well that Aston Martin considered making a small production run, only one of the gen 2 was built.
“When the car was built, Bertone were going to build 10 cars and then Aston Martin would put it into full production,” says Barry. “Unfortunately Bertone went bust and it never happened. It meant, however, that mine became a unique example of an Aston Martin Jet 2+2, an entirely new production car of one.”
This one-off car is now offered for sale. The car is supported with original design buck and ALL the original tooling to build more cars.
“In the last year we’ve had three offers of £1.8m as a starting price just for the car, but I said I don’t want to sell yet,” says Barry. “It’s hard to know what it might all be worth now, but we’re expecting higher offers. It’s so unique to find a car of this calibre with all its history and pieces. Somebody can either buy it all and build more, or they might want to keep it all as it is in case creating more would devalue what they’ve got. But there’s everything there to put it into production.”

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
