Aston Martin Rapide facelift spied without camouflage image

The Aston Martin Rapide facelift has been recently caught on camera while it was being tested on the road, with no camouflage on its body.

After being in production for two years now, the British based automaker Aston Martin has thought that the Rapide needs an update so the revised version of the sedan has just entered our news. The images posted below this article have been provided by teamspeed.com and they reveal the facelifted version of the Aston Martin Rapide which, besides the redesigned front and rear bumper and other minor tweaks, also seems to have been inspired by the One-77. Our source says that the Rapide facelift should hit the market this year or in early 2013.

As a quick reminder, the Aston Martin Rapide is a four-door high-performance luxury sedan, which was officially presented to the public as a concept car back in 2006, during the NAIAS in Detroit. The production version of the model was revealed in 2010 and the model is based on the DB9. The Aston Martin Rapide is currently assembled in Graz, Austria, and it gets a 6.0 liter V12 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The model is 5,019 mm long, 1,928 mm wide and 1,359 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,990 mm.
