Aston Martin is currently developing a facelifted version of the Aston Martin Rapide for the 2013 model year. Rumoured to be a Rapide S, the car was recently captured by an eagle-eyed photographer in Barcelona where the new Rapide model is believed to have been in the process of being photographed for its official launch.
The most notable difference in the 2013 Aston Martin Rapide S compared to the outgoing car is its new one-piece front grille which is reminiscent of the V12 Zagato’s front grille. Although it’s hard to see in the following photo, the man behind the spy shot claims that the headlights and bumpers have also undergone minor styling tweaks in line with the updated Aston Martin styling language.
It’s currently unclear when the 2013 Aston Martin Rapide S will launch, but a debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March is likely.
