“A new chapter in Aston Martin’s modern era has officially begun; with the first four-door Rapide sports cars leaving the Aston Martin Rapide Plant (AMRP) for delivery to eagerly awaiting customers,” stated the press release.

The Rapide can accommodate four passenger and offers a luggage space of 301 liters, while delivering “an engaging driving experience synonymous with all Aston Martins”. The elegant sedan is powered by a hand-built 6.0 liter V12 engine that produces 477 hp at 6,000 rpm and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) at 5,000 rpm. The powerplant is mated to a six speed Touchtronic 2 automatic transmission that allows the driver to change gear automatically or manually, using the steering column-mounted magnesium paddles.
