Aston Martin Rapide Facelift Spied Without Camo

Aston Martin Rapide Facelift Spied Without Camo

AutoGuide’s spies caught a face-lifted Aston Martin Rapide wearing only the slightest bit of camouflage today.

Previously suspected to be a Rapide S, the car is a little clearer now without its extra clothing and looks like a stylistically tweaked version of the current car. A larger grille, different lower air intake and new front bumper all hint that this is a refreshed version of the sport sedan first introduced in 2010.

Apart from front-end changes, the spoiler also gets bigger. Its boisterous 6.0-liter V12 engine is also expected to get a mild power increase above its current 470 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque.

Other minor changes could come before its official debut which is expected late this year or in early 2013.
