2011 Aston Martin Rapide

The 2011 Aston Martin Rapide is the most significant car launched by the storied British automaker since Dr. Ulrich Bez took over the reins in July 2000.

The Rapide looks like Aston Martin’s DB9 because that’s largely what it’s based on. The cars share numerous components including a 6.0-liter V-12 engine, good for 470 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque; a rear-mounted “Touchtronic 2” six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters; and various body panels and suspension components.

In the interior of the Astor Rapide is the leather-skinned interior which one would normally expect from Aston, with appropriate wood and brushed metal trim.Because of the plenty of room available in the front side, there shall be quite easy entry and exit to the front seats.

With a base price of $199,950 and only roughly 500 cars expected annually for US delivery, the 2011 Aston Martin Rapide is obviously not for everyone.But it is significant for Aston Martin because it is the best-looking and all-around best-driving car it offers.
