Review

A brilliant engine isn’t enough to warrant the Aston Martin Rapide’s unsettled ride, so-so handling and cramped interior

get the best price

Trim: RAPIDE S

The Rapide’s big price (rightly) means a long equipment list. Electric, heated, leather seats, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, DAB radio, sat-nav, climate control and xenon headlights are among the luxuries included.

Engine: V12 [552]

A colossal engine that is not short of performance or aural drama. Expect huge bills for servicing and even the lightest of right feet will struggle to manage more than 20mpg in the real world. Buyers will expect this, though, and Aston’s V12 remains one of the most exciting engines on sale.
