Aston Martin Rapide is a high-performance, 4-door, sports saloon which was first arrived in the world market in early 2010. It was the first 4-door saloon by Aston Martin after their discontinued Lagonda, from which Rapide derived its name. The new saloon was based on Aston Martin DB9 and also shares the same VH platform.
