Aston Martin Rapide Production

The 2011 Aston Martin Rapide production is planned to move to the company's Gaydon headquarters in Warwickshire, UK in the second half of 2012. The constraints from 2008 at Gaydon as well as a six-month feasibility study, made Aston Martin decide that Magna Steyr was the partner of production at its facilities in Austria. The working relationship between Aston Martin and Magna Steyr proved to be a highly positive one and the production of Rapide stands as a living proof. Dr Ulrich Bez, Aston Martin Chief Executive, stated that the 2008 facility restrictions at Gaydon indicated that production of Rapide at Gaydon was likely to compromise the production of their other cars and they had not been prepared for that. But after three years, Gaydon appears to be more established and work on readying Aston Martin's Gaydon headquarters for Rapide will begin immediately with a view to production starting in the second half of 2012. The Chief Executive expressed his gratitude towards Magna Steyr and their team of efficient employees who had become part of the Aston Martin family as they had met all their requirements and expectations.
