2010 Aston Martin Rapide
The 2010 Aston Martin Rapide is Aston's first-ever four-door sedan, and its purpose is to combine four-door practicality and exotic sports-car style. Notably, a successful combination has previously proven elusive for many automakers.
As such, the Rapide drives very much like a DB9. The 470-horsepower V12 offers effortless thrust and the sort of grandiose noises that can only be topped by Metallica performing with the London Philharmonic in Westminster Abbey. There is an agility that you just won't get in other super sedans, while at the same time there's the same sort of ride comfort that has made Astons such brilliant touring cars. Even the drop-dead gorgeous styling and beyond-reproach interior are practically identical to the DB9's.
