Photo Fest: Aston Martin Rapide Sports Saloon in 120 High-Res Images

When it comes to specialty cars like the Aston Martin Rapide, the more the photos the merrier. It's not as if most of us will ever have the opportunity to like or dislike the Rapide as an owner, so we might as well enjoy it from a reader's perspective.

And with 120 high-resolution photos of the British sports saloon in four different shades (Hardly Green, Magma Red, Quantum Silver and Silver Blonde) and in all kinds of poses and settings, we reckon that you'll feel pretty 'joyous' after you check out our gallery below.

Priced from of $199,950 in the States and from £139,950 (equal to US$219,500) in the UK, Aston Martin's first ever series-production sports saloon features a hand-built 6.0-litre V12 engine delivering 477-horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 600 Nm or 443 lb-ft of peak torque at 5,000 rpm.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed Touchtronic 2 automatic transmission with Aston announcing a 0-60 mph sprint time of 5.1 seconds (0-100 km/h in 5.3 seconds) and a top speed of 188 mph or 303 km/h.
