2010 Aston Martin Rapide spotted nearly finished
Posted on December 18th, 2008 by Robert Adams | Posted under: Aston Martin, Spy pictures
Less than a week ago Aston Martin released the first official images of the new four-door Rapide. These computer generated images were nice, but nothing compares to the real thing. Looks like this Porsche Panamera fighter is almost ready, showing us rear door handles for the first time.

As we have reported earlier Rapide will be powered most likely by a 6.0-liter V12 engine producing around 500 horses, 0-60 mph will be achieved under 5 seconds and the top speed will be above 180 mph.


Production model should debut early next spring and the first cars should be delivered to their lucky owners end of 2009.

Gorgeous. Especially in comparison to some of the cars that other manufacturers campaigning as their entries, into the luxury/performance saloon ring. The Panamera is in it's entirety, hideous.

I still can't understand why you would want to take one of the worlds most beautiful coupes and turn it into a sedan. Dimension is everything and unfortunately whilst it looks like a Vantage - it aint
The Mazza at least is purpose built for what it is - and dimensions ensure it looks the part as well.
My 2 cents
