Benefits of Driving a 2012 Aston Martin Rapide Sedan

The Rapide is a versatile car: the powerful engine and 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 a largely hand-built car from a legendary English auto company, which means a starting price tag near $200,000.

What's new for 2012?

Aston Martin has released a new trim level for the Rapide in 2012. Dubbed the Rapide Luxe, the new trim does just as its name implies and adds a variety of swanky luxury features to the already luxurious 4-door Aston.

Model Strengths

  • Aston Martin performance and handling
  • exceedingly luxurious interior

Model Review

While design and luxury are important parts of every Aston Martin, it really starts with the engine. The Rapide has a front-mounted 6.0L V12 capable of 477 hp and 443 pound-feet of torque, mated to a Touchtronic 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.
