First Production Aston Martin Rapide Rolls Off The Line

Finally! After four years since the four-door Aston Martin Rapide was first shown as a concept in 2006 NAIAS, the first real version comes off the production line at Aston Martin Rapide Plant (AMRP), on its way to its lucky customer. Now four years to turn a concept into reality might not seem that long, but during that time Porsche managed to think about, design, develop, test, produce and sell the four-door Panamera!

The elegant Rapide, functional yet luxurious, provides space for up to four adults combined with an engaging driving experience synonymous with all Aston Martins. A 301 litre luggage compartment affords generous space for belongings for all four passengers, creating an Aston Martin which can be enjoyed on any occasion, anytime, anywhere. At the heart of the Rapide lies an evocative engine providing effortless power and torque: a hand-built 6.0-litre V12 engine producing 470 bhp (477 PS / 350 kW) with peak power being delivered at 6000 rpm and 600 Nm (443 lb.ft) peak torque at 5000 rpm. A specifically tuned six-speed Touchtronic 2 automatic transmission features as standard, allowing the driver to change gear automatically or manually via the steering column-mounted magnesium paddles.
