Aston Martin Rapide
2006 DETROIT SHOW
Power for the Rapide hails from a revised DB9 V12 engine that pushes out 36 hp more than its two-door sibling. Drive is channeled to the rear wheels via a six-speed ZF automatic gearbox. To offset the four-door’s added weight, Aston gives the Rapide unique gear ratios and a lower final drive that results in performance on par with DB9. That means 0 to 60 mph in about 4.6 seconds, a standing quarter-mile in less than 13 seconds and top speed around 186 mph.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
