The only available four doors four seater car in the entire Aston Martin range is the Aston Martin Rapide. Unlike what you would think a lot of mechanics operate manually including the steering wheel that is manually adjusted. The car comes with some excellently leather finished interiors. The car is oozing with leather wrapped seats, steering wheel, dashboard and everything else is leather wrapped with the center console having some haptic feedback buttons to control options. Take the key and put it inside the center console and you are ready to fire up the engine which makes you feel like you’re in a movie action sequence.
Power comes from a monstrous 6.0L V12 engine that breaths out angrily 550hp and 630Nm of torque available and put through the rear wheels by an 8-speed Touch-Tronic gearbox. It hits 0-100kmph in 4.2 seconds making it rapid, a testament to its name. The exhaust note sounds like a muffled tornado that approaches you at speed. It rushes your adrenaline while still keeping you enjoying its soundtrack. Mind you, this is a family car and hence it can comfortably seat 4 people and fly by whatever that comes in front of it.
The car’s engine is in the front and the power goes to the rear wheels somehow perfectly aiding weight distribution that helps in the handling characteristics of the car. While the engine sound is enough to keep you thrilled, you do get Bang & Olufsen Beosound Audio with 15 speakers and 1000W to listen to the minute instruments that you missed to hear otherwise on your favorite track. The Aston Martin Rapide is an excellent family car that is rapidly fast.
