The Aston Martin Rapide Bertone was commissioned by an avid Aston Martin collector, who even personally supervised the whole development process of the vehicle from the design study, to the manufacturing process, up until the bespoke paintjob and upholstery.

Although its powertrain remains unchanged, the redesigned body now offers more headroom for the rear seats, which can also be folded down flat and covered with a sliding compartment cover to accommodate more luggage.

The Aston Martin Rapide Bertone not only marks the company's sixty years of cooperation with Aston Martin, but will also be the brand's way of commemorating Aston Martin's 100th year anniversary.
