Aston Martin Rapide S for Sale

Despite being on sale in Australia for more than two years, there is a good chance that you have never seen an Aston Martin Rapide in the wild. Arguably the most beautiful four door car in the world, the Rapide is a confusing proposition, with four seats, it is no more practical than a vanquish and with a price tag approaching half-a-million dollars it is hardly a family car, so what is it? The Rapide is a beautiful brut, the perfect grand tourer- pack the boot and away you go.

rapide 2 rapide 6The Rapide isn’t all about keeping up appearances, with a 6.0L naturally aspirated V12 up the front sending 411kW/630Nm to the rear wheels, the Rapide S is capable of accelerating to 100km/h in 4.4sec- the same time as the Porsche Panamera GTS. Blistein dampers coupled with a sophisticated adaptive damping system also make the Rapide a comfortable option for negotiating rough Australian roads.

With an asking price of $467,432, the Aston falls squarely into the firing of the Porsche Panamera Turbo S and Bentley Continental GTV8S; we would be hard pressed choosing a winner out of the three.
