With the eagerly awaited four-door Rapide going through its final stages of engineering and testing before its launch in early 2010, Aston Martin has now confirmed Australian pricing for its newest sports car.
The Rapide will start from A$366,280.00 (plus on-road and dealer delivery costs) in Australia and is now available to order from the Aston Martin dealership network around the world.
Aston Martin expects to hand-build around 2000 Rapides in the first year at its new 17,000 m2 building Rapide Plant in Graz, Austria.
Each Rapide will take approximately 220 man hours to build, shown the same level of attention to detail and quality as those manufactured at the Gaydon plant.
The Rapide is expected to attract a high proportion of new customers to the brand in the first year with ample accommodation for up to four adults and a spacious boot making it a more practical indulgence.
