Is the wife forcing you to sell your two seater sportscar to make room for the family? Now, you won’t have to go out and get yourself a Land Cruiser. The Aston Martin Rapide has just been launched in India to end all your family haulage woes. The four seater rocket from Britain is powered by a 5935cc, V12 motor that makes 560PS and 630Nm. Need to get your family across the planet at 327kmph? The Rapide is your answer. Now all you need to do is find the Rs 3.29 crore (ex-Thane) to get one for yourself.
