Rapide Review 545x319 at Harry Metcalfe Reviews Aston Martin Rapide

In his latest piece of video diary, Evo’s founder Harry Metcalfe reviews the Aston Martin Rapide. He’s been running this car for a while, along with his Maserati GranTurismo, and has some surprising news for us. The four-door Aston is actually less practical than the two-door Maser. It is a helluva driver’s car though; a fantastic cruiser and just a cool cool object to have. Check out the video after the jump.

Refresher: Aston Martin Rapide features 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 lbft) 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.
