The new 2011 Aston Martin Rapide is without a doubt one of the sexiest four-doors ever created. From a visual standpoint the car is simply stunning and holds true to the muscular elegance that Aston Martin is known for. With such beauty however comes some inherent problems as Matt Farah and the guys from The Smoking Tire have come to find out. Matt and the boys decided to take the Rapide out for a day of golf, but in the process found that space wise, the Rapide really wasn’t up to snuff. While the front seats are fine for regular sized adults, the rears are nothing more than kiddy pads at most. Sure they are well sculpted and beautifully done, but as for real comfort and usage they simply can’t get the job done. The new Rapide is powered by a 475 hp V12 that propels the car along nicely. Sure you can get more power from other big sedans, but nothing will transport you with the same amount of style as the Rapide. The Rapide is not the fastest, the best handling or the most exotic and coming in at $200k, it’s certainly not the cheapest. What it is though is a beautiful grand touring four-door for those looking for the beauty and styling that Aston Martin is known for.
