If James Bond ever settles down to have a family, he’ll almost certainly opt for an Aston Martin Rapide S. The Rapide S combines the brand’s various sport coupe design elements with the practicality of a sedan, making it the most versatile of all Aston Martin vehicles so far. With rear seats that make you feel as though you’re travelling in a private jet, this unconventional sedan relies on a V12 that generates 552 horsepower and 465 lb·ft of torque.
