It has been rumoured for a while now that Aston Martin would move some of their manufacturing away from their Gaydon manufacturing plant and we can now confirm that this is the case. Aston is suffering from the same issue as a number of high-end car manufacturers ? big demand for their product and not enough manufacturing capacity to deal with it.

With their current product proving immensely popular, Aston?s Gaydon plant is running at capacity which means alternative arrangements have needed to be made for the production of their upcoming Rapide four-door.

The answer has been found in a partnership with Austria?s Magna Steyr who will handle production of the Rapide. With Rapide production due to get underway in late 2009, Magna Steyr will set-up a new manufacturing plant to handle Rapide production at its current facility in Graz Austria. It is estimated that Rapide production will be somewhere near 2,000 units per year.
