First seen at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show in concept form, the production Rapide is nearly identical to the original show car however there are a few subtle differences. The production model loses the tiny side air intakes on the front bumper, while the sides pick up a new shunt line that runs almost the entire length of the body. Up back the car is expected to feature LED tail lights, dual exhaust tips and a boat-tail style rear decklid spoiler.

Under the hood will be a slightly more powerful version of the DB9's 6.0L V12. This will be mated to a six-speed ZF automatic transmission with Aston Martin’s new Touchtronic control. Final output should rest somewhere around the 480hp (358kW) so as not to step on the toes of the 510hp (380kW) DBS flagship, reports Automotive News.

That is how you get a something right.
Cant wait for a real life pic it should look even better. If im not mistaken the above is CGI.

I was expecting something that departed a bit more from the general lines of the DB9. Kinda like the Lagonda of the '80s was different than the Vantage.

Looks pretty darn sexy, though I'm not sure I like that line that runs across the doors.

I didn't want to put it like that :laugh: but that's basically my feeling as well, it's a stretched DB9.

2011 Aston Martin Rapide Luxe
Aston Martin‘s Rapide sedan is already one of the most striking luxury four-doors on the market, with a bent more towards the sporty side of the equation. But Aston’s newest Luxe packing will swing the pendulum the in the opposite direction, emphasising comfort and coddling over outright speed.

The Luxe package will give buyers a choice of exclusive paint hues (including Concours Blue or the James Bond-esque Quantum Silver), a rear seat DVD system, custom luggage outfitted to match your Rapide’s interior, and switchgear made of glass. Sounds delicate.
