Aston Martin Announces Pricing for Rapide

Aston Martin Rapide

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 contact your Aston Martin dealer now to put in your order.

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
