If you’ve been reading this blog for any time, you know we’re not huge fans of the four-door Aston Martin Rapide. Nevertheless, it does have its customers, so we need to cover it like any other car.
Due out early Q2 2010, the Rapide sedan will start at $199,950 in the States and feature a 6.0-liter V12 engine producing 470 hp, just like the DB9. A six-speed Touchtronic gearbox will be standard; not sure if a manual will even be available. The V12 engine will propel the Rapide from zero to 60 mph in a respectable 5.1 seconds.
Somewhere around 2,000 Rapides will be built in the first year – you can your Aston Martin dealer now to put in your order.
