Aston Rapide's SA price

2009-12-10 10:55
Aston Martin's breathtaking take on the super sedan - Rapide - is being primed for an early-2010 launch in SA. We have prices.

Pricing for Rapide will start from R2 809 000 and the price includes registration and dealer delivery costs.

Gaydon's first production four-door sports car will feature a spectacular standard specification list including a bespoke Bang & Olufsen Beosound audio system, adaptive braking system and heated memory seats.

In another break from tradition, this is also the first Aston that will not be built at the company's traditional home. Rather, Rapide will be hand-built by specialist carmaker Magna Steyr at its Graz plant in Austria.

It is expected that around 2 000 Rapide units (each requiring about 220 hours to build) will roll off the Graz line its first year of production.
