Aston Martin's Rapide four-door sports car will be launched early next year, with prices starting from 139,950.
A 470bhp version of Aston Martin's 6.0-litre V12 engine should allow it to blend supercar performance with its limousine credentials.
Standard equipment includes a Bang & Olufsen Beosound stereo, heated seats and adaptive shock absorbers.
Sporty gets added practicality
As Aston Martin's first production four-door sports car, the Rapide has been designed to blend extra practicality with the company's trademark sports-car dynamics.
The cars are being built at Aston Martin's Rapide factory in Graz, Austria. Each will take around 220 hours to create.
Aston Martin is hoping the Rapide will attract new customers to the brand, and plans to build around 2000 models in the first year.
Orders are being taken now, for deliveries from April.
