Introduced in 2010 as a spiritual successor to the Aston Martin Lagonda (1976-1990) and updated in 2013, the Rapide isn’t a sedan I’d consider old, not even by today’s standards. Yes, the VH platform it’s built on is long in the tooth, but, thanks to its exterior design, interior, and powerful engine, it can still hold its own against competition. However, it seems the Rapide won’t be around for much longer, as Aston Martin won’t include it in its future plans. Specifically, the Brits want to retire the nameplate at the end of its life cycle and replace it with not one, but two vehicles. That’s right, Aston’s future includes two four-door products, one of which will grant the company access to a market it has yet to explore.
