There’s little argument that the Rapide, Aston Martin’s first four-door sedan since the 1993 Virage Lagonda, is drop-dead gorgeous. The production car was unveiled earlier this year at the Frankfurt motor show, but Aston just released additional photography that has us drooling.
It’s hard to believe anything with a 470-hp, 6.0-liter V-12 could be a family sedan, but that seems to be exactly what Aston believes it to be. A few photos released by the company show a family packing luggage (and a dog) for what may be a weekend getaway. We doubt most (or any) Rapides will be stuffed to the gills in this manner, but it’s a neat way to illustrate the car’s usability.
Other photos released show the Rapide in its natural habitat, blasting through serene harbors and forests on winding roads. Take a look through the gallery to see the Rapide in all its glory.
