Aston Martin Rapide Spotted


Aston Martin Rapide in Bangalore
Thursday morning, I found myself waiting on the road (a few kilometers from my place) for my friend who was 20 minutes way too late! I am not the kind to wait (Thanks Param) and so I paced up and down with frustration filling my head. I’m guessing the clock struck upon a holy hour because a miracle appeared before my eyes! It was an angel – yes an angel with a beautiful body that flew past me! It wasn’t Gabriel – it was the Aston Martin Rapide! Shocker of my life – the good kind of course!

Why? For starters, Aston Martin is a brand that has always lured me with its power, beauty and soul. It’s a British manufacturer of luxury sports cars and has been building the finest sports cars in the world for more than a century. Ulrich Bez, CEO of Aston Martin, says the Aston Martin Rapide is the only true four-door sports car in the world.

The Aston Martin Rapide is a four-door, high-performance sporty saloon which was launched in 2010. The production version of the Rapide was flaunted at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Rapide is a marvel just like its siblings! It is very hard to believe that it’s not a two-door coupe from some angles.

The marvel is powered by the famous hand-built Aston Martin 6.0-litre V12 engine which can churn 470bhp at 443 lbf·ft of torque. This superhero also exhilarates from 0-100 km/h in less than 5 seconds to hit a top speed of 303 km/h. It goes without saying the car will compete with vehicles like the Porsche Panamera which showcases 500bhp. However, power isn’t the only attribute under the microscope, let’s examine other fiery facts! The Rapide is one of the most expensive and exclusive luxury sports sedans on the market, with standard features that include a Bang & Olufsen Beosound audio system, heated memory seats and Aston Martin's Adaptive Damping System.

So we’ve examined its external beauty – let’s take a look at its inner beauty (prepare to be amazed!). Park yourself into any of the comfy four full-grain leather seats and take a look around. Your eyes will widen at the tasteful Walnut dash trim along with Iridium Silver and Graphite metallic accents! You will also find a specifically tuned six-speed Touchtronic 2 automatic transmission that allows the driver to change gears automatically or manually via the steering column-mounted magnesium paddles. The four-door miracle even comes with the optional Piano Black fascia trim, red stitching on the seats and a rear seat entertainment system with a 6-Disc DVD player and wireless headphones. You can seat four of your friend (but trust me there is no room for complaints in this classy cockpit!)

Miracles are priceless, considering that this one can be purchased for 2-3 Crores to accommodate you and your family – makes it worth every penny!
