2010 Aston Martin Rapide Review

Gorgeous, luxurious, exotic sedan with the soul of a sports car

Reviewed by Automotive on

In a Nutshell
The 2010 Aston Martin Rapide is a luxury sedan that is pretty much like the DB9 except it has four doors instead of two. Sporting a V-12 engine coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission, the Aston Martin Rapide carries four passengers, albeit in close quarters.

With a long center console that flows from the vehicle's front to the vehicle's rear for a seamless integration, the Aston Martin Rapide's blacked-out B-pillar exterior hides under the side glass creating the illusion of a single piece.

New for 2010

The 2010 Aston Martin Rapide is an all-new four-door sedan that is back after a long absence, going back to the Lagonda in the early 1960s.
