Aston Martin Rapide to be made in the UK

Aston Martin will provide a boost to the Midlands with the news that it will move production of its four-door Rapide to the UK in 2012.

Since it was launched in 2008 the Rapide has been built in Magna Steyr in Austria, but the production line will shift to the firm's plant in Gaydon by the middle half of next year.
