Image Gallery: 2016 Aston Martin Rapide
Is the wife forcing you to sell your two seater sportscar to make room for the family? Now, you won't have to go out and get yourself a Land Cruiser. The Aston Martin Rapide has just been launched in India to end all your family haulage woes. The four seater rocket from Britain is powered by a 5935cc, V12 motor that makes 560PS and 630Nm. Need to get your family across the planet at 327kmph? The Rapide is your answer. Now all you need to do is find the Rs 3.29 crore (ex-Thane) to get one for yourself.
Rapide's signature silhouette still manages to keep the essence of Aston Martin alive despite the extra doors and seats
Aside from the extra doors, it is almost impossible to tell the Rapide apart from its two-doored brethren
Signature Aston Martin interiors do seem a bit dated now. But there's no denying that it coccoons you in luxury
The Rapide features adaptive damping, a selectable sports mode and a very advanced traction control system with a built in track mode
Aston Martin's signature gear selector buttons remind you that the Rapide actually uses an automated manual transmission. But at 130 milliseconds per gear shift, it isn't slow by any means
The new Rapide also gets a new infotainment system with a pop-up screen on the centre console
You can't complain about not having a boot. But is the boot any use? Only if you want to carry just your golf kit along
Whatever said and done, when you see this out on the highway, all you can do is stare
Want to cross continents in style with your kids in tow? The Rapide might just be the quickest way to do that
