Aston Martin Rapide: £140k

Aston Martin have finally announced prices for the forthcoming Rapide: £139,950 will buy you the more-door with its handmade 6.0-litre V12, 470bhp, dual-cast brakes, adaptive dampers and the whole shooting match. Now, that's nearly twice the price of the Porsche Panamera, but Aston are keen to point out that this isn't designed as a rival to the Porsche (or Maserati's Quattroporte, for that matter), but is in fact a unique niche with its own design ethos. Besides, who the fuck wants a Panamera anyway?
