The Rapide, which we first saw in Frankfurt last year, when it was revealed to the public for the first time, is the first four-door sports car in the world.
Powered by a hand built 6.0-litre V12 engine, the car features a specifically tuned six-speed Touchtronic 2 automatic transmission, Adaptive Suspension and a 1000watt bang & Olufsen audio system as standard fitment to all cars.
It will also seat up to four people and has a luggage capacity of 301-750 litres.
Priced from $366,280.00 (plus dealer delivery & on road costs), the Rapide is now on sale through Aston martin dealers with deliveries commencing from July 2010.
CarAdvice is attending the worldwide press launch in Valencia Spain next week and will file a complete review of the car from behind the wheel.
Our US based correspondent Mark Hacking, has already driven the car, and has confirmed to us that the car is sensational.
