Photos of a silver Aston Martin Rapide prototype in winter testing provide new details as to how the production version will look in the metal.

Images of the Aston Martin Rapide continue to surface, and if you just can't get enough, here are a few more. We've got front and rear shots of a barely-disguised silver Rapide in the snow. The light color provides a clear look at the shape of the glass roof, especially from the rear, and for our purposes the snow crusted on the fenders highlights contours that weren't previously obvious, showing just how aggressive the Rapide's wheel placement is.

Latest reports say the Rapide is still set for a Geneva debut in March, with sales starting later in 2009. Though the worldwide car market is down, luxury sedans haven't been as strongly affected, and the fact that both Jaguar and Rolls-Royce actually did well in 2008 bodes well for the equally British Aston Martin Rapide.
