Our good pal Darren from TeamSpeed spotted this Hardly Green 4-door Aston Martin Rapide cruising East 61st Street one sunny afternoon last weekend. Yes, you read that correctly…a 4-door Aston Martin. I know what you’re thinking…since when does Aston Martin concern themselves with backseat passengers? It’s akin to a watering hole offering day care for patrons or a strip club with 401K plans for their employees. But, truth be told, Aston has actually built their fair share of sporting saloons over the years. The one you see here is actually a pre-production model, or prototype to sound more exciting, likely being used for VIP test drives and high end dealer salon shows. How do we know? Because the Rapide isn’t out yet. This probably explains the pissed off expression seen on the passenger’s face. But hey, you can’t drive around in something this sexy and not expect to be photographed. Look for the 470 HP Rapide to hit dealerships next month for about $200K.
Awesome find Darren!
