In most cases, the line between luxury and sport vehicles is lightyears away, swaying towards one or the other. Aston Martin went against the grain when creating the Aston Martin Rapide, by making it the best of both worlds. This futuristic looking family sedan boasts 470 Horsepower while comfortably seating a family of four. Comparable to the infamous Ferrari FF, the sport sedan packs a 6.0L 12 cylinder engine at a fraction of the cost with twice the leg room.
Although the sleek space ship style body lines draw attention to the car, the interior is the true winner for the Aston Martin Rapide. The beautiful Black and Tan color combination gives great contrast between the interior and exterior on this vehicle. The sound of the engine is out weighed in the cabin by the upgraded Bang and Olufsen sound system. A major upgrade on this particular vehicle is the rear entertainment package. The TV head rests along with the rear center console exemplifies luxury at the highest degree. No need to worry about the upcoming summer months, as this car has all four seats upgraded with vented seating at the touch of a button.
The engineers at Aston Martin did not hold back when deciding what power plant best fits the Rapide. The hand build 6.0L 12 cylinder engine makes an astonishing 443 pound feet of torque from factory to compliment it's even more impressive 470 Horsepower. It is matted to a 6 speed transmission, that of course, comes with paddle shifters on the steering wheel allowing the drive to simulate the true race car feeling that it deserves.
