The Rapide was the first 4-door Aston Martin since the Lagonda of the 1980s, and the bonded aluminum chassis is a stretched version of Aston’s VH platform utilized in the DB9, DBS, and V8 Vantage. Per the seller, the front bumper was repainted under previous ownership and displays a few scrapes underneath.

The factory split-spoke 20″ alloy wheels wear newer tires, and the windows are tinted all around. The Rapide is nearly a foot longer than the DB9, and it features adaptive Bilstein shocks and an aluminum rear subframe. The cost new was around $200k.

Factory output was 470 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque when new, enough to propel the car from zero to 60 mph in just under five seconds and on to a reported top speed of 188 mph.
