Earlier today we caught the first shots of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage RS racing round the Nurburgring and fortunately this wasn't the only car the British manufacturers were testing.

Revealed in these latest spy shots, we can the see the super sexy Aston Martin Rapide is gonna get even sexier with the addition of a panoramic glass roof stretching from the top of the windscreen to the top of the rear window.

Power is likely to come from Aston Martin's 6.0 liter V12 engine producing around 500bhp, 0-60mph will be achieved in under 5 seconds and the top speed lies above 180mph. Sources claim we will see the production ready car hit dealerships sometime in 2009, so we should see the Rapide debut later this year with Paris being a likely destination.
