Despite its supercar status, the Aston Martin Rapide S has many direct and indirect competitors.
The Porsche Panamera is all-new for 2017 and includes the latest in technology and styling.
The Panamera can approach the Rapide S in price, but only for a fully decked model with just about everything.
The Mercedes-Benz CLS class can't touch the growl from the Aston's V-12, but its twin-turbo V-8 in AMG guise is just as loud and fast.
The Audi A7 is an approachable "four-door coupe" for luxury buyers looking to keep the price below six figures, and just as gorgeous, we say.
Maserati's potent powertrain is just as legendary as the Aston V-12, but little else on the Q-Porte stacks up to the Rapide.
BMW M6 Gran Coupe buyers may be tempted by the Rapide's shape, but the M6 is a little more spacious inside—and about $80,000 less expensive.
