Okay, so what’s the Aston Martin? After owners of Ford unveiled the Rapide concept two years ago in Detroit, the project was shelved. Now that the new owners have moved to the headquarters of Gaydon, Quick was gassed, then left for a cruise winter not even a week later.
We feel blessed to know that Aston Martin is serious about re-familiarize the public with the Fast. With a platform of the DB9 and V12 engine – set at 480 horses – Fast should make a huge dent in the sales of the Audi A7, Maserati Quattroporte, Mercedes CLS, Mercedes S, and Porsche Panamera.
Swan four-door, four-seat, five meters long, 5.2 seconds at 100 kmh means this car will turn your head as it blows by you. The Aston Martin Rapide should see production for the 2009 model year 2010.
