Aston Martin Rapide
The Rapide is possibly the best looking four-door you can buy. It comes with a potent 6-litre V12 powerplant placed in the front, sending power to the rear wheels through a six-speed transmission. Unlike some family cruisers which try to hide what's lurking under the engine bay, the Rapide flaunts its V12 engine by way of its scintillating exhaust note. You know something special is headed your way when you can hear it from a mile away! The Rapide bears a strong resemblance to the rest of the Aston Martin line-up, so much so that you can't tell one model from the other unless you look at the badge at the back. That's not a bad thing, because this car is definitely lust-worthy.
There's only room for four inside the cabin, so you might have to choose favourites among your kids, but for the people that you do take, the sports seats are very comfortable, even over long distances. For the driver, the Rapide offers performance that rivals most supercars. So, you have something that looks like a supercar, handles like one and sounds absolutely amazing! If you fancy this in your garage, the Rapide is yours for Rs 2.2 crore, ex-showroom, Mumbai.
