Aston Martin Rapide saloon news - Four-blimey - 2007

David
Richards’ sainthood is guaranteed now.

Not
only has the Prodrive boss ensured Aston Martin a safe future by returning it
to British hands, he’s now confirmed that the Rapide saloon will go into
 production.

It
would’ve been a crime against aesthetics to leave the beautiful four door
-  revealed in Detroit last year -
in concept form only.

But
under Ford’s parsimonious watch, the Rapide’s future was uncertain as the auto
giant lumbered through the financial mire.

Aston
chief executive Ulrich Bez has now said the Rapide could be on sale by 2010
with as many as 2000 cars being built every year to swell Aston’s coffers.

Praise
 be.
