The Aston Martin Rapide Bertone Jet 2+2 is a production car of ONE designed by Barry Weir. It was shown at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. A collector named Barry commissioned the one-off build and helped in its build.[1] This car was to be put into production with Aston Martin and Bertone.

The second generation is based on the Aston Martin Rapide. There were just 20 built of the first generation and only one of the current generation.

Now up to 9 Jet 2+2 could be built in 2018
