Frankfurt 2009: Aston Martin Rapide comes good - finally

The production version of the 4-door Aston Martin Rapide concept unveiled at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show certainly has the looks department locked down. A few concessions have been made in the three-year run to production readiness, including bigger side-view mirrors and a less tapered roofline to offer more interior space – especially for the rear passengers.
