If James Bond had settled down with Vesper and had kids, the new Aston Martin Rapide would be the car he drove the kids to school in. Visually the car looks like a Vantage with two extra doors and it is very sexy.

Aston Martin says that the car is in the final stages of development and will make its public debut in late 2009. The final release model of the Rapide will be delivered in early 2010. The four-door beauty is a grand tourer designed for long-range driving comfort and performance.

The beast uses the 6-liter V12 Aston is famous for that puts out 470bhp and 600Nm of torque. Aston is mum on the performance specs, but expect them to be impressive. Consider the admittedly smaller and lighter Vantage hits 60mph in 4 seconds and odds are this four-door beast will be but a half second or so off that mark.
