While the Panamera is surely not the best looking car in the world, it sure is powerful. The guys over at Autocar did a small comparison test between the Aston Martin Rapide and the all new Porsche Panamera. We certainly don’t want to spoil the results for you, so go ahead and check out the video. There is one thing we do want to say though, his closing statement is a bit questionable.
The Aston martin One-77 isn’t just all about speed, even though it has no problems reaching the 220 mph mark, but it’s also about elegance and luxury. You see, this supercar has it all, power and beauty, along with a lot of luxury, which makes it one of my favorite supercars. Check out the gallery below and see for yourself.

I am sure you remember our previous post about the Aston Martin Rapide and the numerous images that we posted. Well that was nothing compared to the amount of pictures you will see now. As you remember, the Aston Martin Rapide has a 470-hp V-12 and six-speed paddle-shifted automatic; with a 0-60 mph time of 5.3 seconds, and top speed of 188mph.

If you were to ask the Aston Martin CEO if the Porsche Panamera is a threat to their Rapide, then he’d flat-out deny it. According to the CEO, Ulrich Bez, Rapid is .. “the only four-door sports car in the world,” which makes you wonder what he thinks is the Porsche Panamera then. Either way, the Aston Martine Rapide is around $200,000, which is a lot more than the price tag of the Panamera ($125,000 to $175,000), so maybe they are not even targeting the same demographic.
Bez expects to sell around 2000 to 3000 cars a year, which would amount to around one-third of all their car sales. They sure have high hopes for the Rapid, so these statements from the CEO are not really surprising.
In case you didn’t know, the Aston Martin Rapid has a 470-hp V-12 and six-speed paddle-shifted automatic; with a 0-60 mph time of 5.3 seconds, it sure as hell will take you to its 188-mph top speed in no time.
