On Friday of last week we managed to get our hands on images that had been floating around the web alleged to be leaked images of the official production version of the Aston Martin Rapide. While we’re not exactly willing to bet all the marbles that the rumors were true, Aston Martin has been subjecting us to an agonizingly long wait for the Rapide and at this point, we’ll take any sort of news release we can get our hands on. So although we had viable reason to doubt the legitimacy of the “leaked” pictures, spy photos snapped by the ever-watchful eyes of the KGP photographers (on behalf of AutoBlog) have captured a semi-nude Aston Martin Rapide that bears a striking resemblance to the Rapide we saw on Friday.

Expected to make its official debut in early 2009 as a 2010 model (a full three years after its initial unveiling – hence our impatience), this most recent round of spy shots coupled with last week’s production photos have us cautiously hopeful that we’re now getting an eyeful of the nearly production-ready 2010 Aston Martin Rapide. The best part? It looks nothing like the Porsche Panamera.
