The Aston Martin Rapide has had an uncertain life. It was first shown to the world back in 2006 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, since then it was put on hold by Ford (ex-owners of Aston) and then revived by David Richards (the head of the current consortium of owners). Its amazing to see that Aston Martin has truly hit a new level in every respect...

Aston Martin V8 Vantage by Mansory

For the most part, high-end tuning companies have a difficult job when it comes to modifying some of the most perfect sports cars in the world.
