Aston Martin Rapide to be built in Italy?

"Aston Martin’s boss has exclusively revealed why the firm is considering building its new four-door Rapide model abroad.
Chief Executive, Dr Ulrich Bez, confirmed to Autocar that making the Rapide in Italy is one of the options being considered, and that sports car specialist Pininfarina is one of the potential third party production experts being considered.
“Many manufacturers already build models at specialist manufacturers like Karmann, Magna Steyr and Pininfarina, where they have top quality facilities and all the capabilities needed,” said Bez."

“The Rapide will not be a four-seat limo; that is not its role,” he said. “It will, however, be far more elegant and stylish than any other luxury four-seat model.”

Surely one of the unique selling points about all Astons is that they are made in Britain
