The Aston Martin Rapide is a new breed of 4 door sports sedan. Rapide haven’t gone away to the coupe look yet it is a 4 door sedan and God…it is just profound beauty in metal sheets! Porsche also created this type of sedan with the Panamera but just can’t compete with what Aston Martin has achieved. The Rapide can be compared to a Vantage, it shares the same front door creases, it has the same handling, it can spawn almost the same power… the Rapide is just bigger and when driving this car you actually forget that there are rear seats.
Aston Martin placed under the hood of the Rapide a 6.0 liter V12 engine that can chunk out 470 bhp with a generous 443 lb ft of torque. This is the engine similarly used with the DBS, DB9 and with the Vantage. The Rapide can rocket launch from 0-60 in just 5.1 seconds which can actually be called in the supercar territory. You can try the Rapide on a city drive and it just handles perfectly, it can be like being driven on a limo, comfortable and relaxing. For those people who love beauty and speed take a look at the Aston Martin Rapide…it will leave your mouths gaping wide open.
