New Pictures : Aston Martin Rapide
Aston Martin revealed official pictures of the production Rapide. Looking at the pictures, it looks nearly identical to the original concept we saw in 2006. It still looks like a 4-door DB9, which is a good thing. It’s closest competitors are the new Porsche Panamera and Lamborghini Estoque when it enters production. Power will very likely come from a 6.0L V12 engine producing around 500hp, 0-60mph will be achieved in under 5 seconds and the top speed will be above 180 mph. Rumor is that the base price is around €150,000 and it will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March. First deliveries should start end of 2009 or early 2010.
