Aston Martin first introduced the Rapide only two years ago, yet they are now planning to release a facelifted Rapide that is projected to arrive late next year, most likely as a 2013 model. There are very few differences from the current car to the one in development. Some of the slight adjustments include a new lower front bumper and an all around agressive look for the Rapide. Other than that, nothing else has been significantly changed to the original 2010 version.
At the moment, there are no indications that Aston will change the 6.0-liter V12 engine or upgrade the 470hp. It's hard to imagine that the Rapide has only been on the market for less than two years and already Aston is working on a facelifted model. It's to early to know whether pricing will be changed.
