Aston-Martin Vanquish Jet-2 and DB4GT Jet-1

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
At the 1961 Geneva Auto Show, the Bertone stand exhibited a lovely GT on the Aston-Martin DB 4GT chassis. It was dubbed the Jet. Although the car was truly designed in Betone's studios most of the elements were from the pen Giorgio Giugiaro. Giugiaro went on to establish his own studio, Ital Design.



Forty-three years later, in 2004, Bertone once again selected an Aston-Martin chassis as the foundation for a concept car. The Vanquish was turned into the Jet-2. The Jet-2 is reminiscent of many Shooting Brake designs done for Aston-Martin, Bentley, and Jaguar. It does have some eerie profile similarities to the Reliant Scimitar Shooting Brake as well.

An Aston MArtin HAtch back...? Where's the Ferrari Minivan?

The new one rather reminds me of an over-inflated BMW Z4.

The profile of the old one suggests something of the Glas 3000 to me.

Looks like the Saab 9-X concept that came out a few years ago.

Be careful what you ask for! The years in the descriptions are not model years.

It is no wonder. Rumors still persist that Giugiaro moonlighted for Frua, the official design house of the Glas GT design.
