The Cheapest Aston Martin Rapide on Autotrader Is Just $64,995


In the world of used luxury sedans, most people buy one of the usual suspects: BMW. Mercedes-Benz. Maybe an Audi A8 or a Lexus LS. But here’s something you may not have realized: For about the same price as a used luxury sedan from one of the “normal” brands, you can get a used luxury sedan from … Aston Martin.

The sedan in question is the Aston Martin Rapide, and it came out in the United States for the 2011 model year. This particular example is a 2011 Rapide, and it’s already been driven quite a bit: It’s traveled 47,700 miles, which may not seem like much for a 6-year-old car — but it’s a lot for an Aston Martin, as they’re usually used as second or third cars.

More importantly, this Rapide is just $64,995, which is enormously cheap compared to the original price — which started at $208,900 before options. That means this car has taken a $140,000 fall in just 47,000 miles. Maybe more importantly, that $64,995 price tag buys you a 5.9-liter V12 with 470 horsepower, which is far more than a typical S-Class or 7 Series.

Admittedly, the Rapide does have some drawbacks as a used luxury sedan. Reliability is certainly one of them, as Aston Martin isn’t known for the same level of dependability as Lexus or even Mercedes-Benz — and the V12 under the hood won’t be helping matters. Also, the technology is a bit outdated, and the Rapide only has seating for four, with a big console in the rear center.

But do you really care when it’s this attractive — and this affordable? Find a 2011 Aston Martin Rapide for sale

  1. if only someone would offer me a chance to make 12k a month working on line…that would be sweet, then I could buy all the cars Doug writes about !  Haha 

  2. Honestly one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful sedan.  There’s a guy who drives one in my town who is probably about 35 and looks just like who you would imagine would drive one of these: a Sterling Archer look-alike with lighter hair.  Brilliant.
