The Rapide is a versatile car: the powerful engine and performance handling make it a sports car; the four seats and flexible cargo space make it a practical car; and the refined interior and advanced technology make it a luxury car. It's also an exclusive, largely hand-built car from a storied English auto company, which means a starting price tag near $200,000. That price buys one of the best-performing, most stylish touring cars available.
The Rapide is the first production four-door sports car from the British automaker. All four doors use Aston's 'swan wing' configuration, meaning they slightly open up and out to make entry and exit easy for all occupants. The trunk is large enough to accommodate the belongings of all those passengers -- including skis. Aston Martin didn't sacrifice its sporting heritage in building a sedan. The Rapide has the same hand-built V12 engine found in the Vantage and DB9, capable of 447 hp. The Rapide is capable of reaching 60 mph in about 5 seconds -- not bad for a 4-door.
While design and luxury are important parts of every Aston Martin, it really starts with the engine. The Rapide has a front-mounted 6-liter V12 with 477 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque mated to a Touchtronic 2 6-speed shift-by-wire automatic with paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. It's capable of a top speed of 188 mph, and a 0-60 mph time of 5.0 seconds -- and when driven at speed, the side windows move up into the window seal for a quieter ride.
