    Re: Undisguised AM Rapide caught

    The should have gone with newer rear lights design and a zagato like front, IMO!

    And hey look "Audi"(!) beat them to it they copied the 3rd side window for their Sportback that made AM unique! hahaah

    It looks good... just 2yrs to late, IMO... Shown first as a concept, last to the finish.

    Re: Undisguised AM Rapide caught

    It is two years too late, now it will have to compete with the sportier CGT, the Panamera and the 612 FL most likely...

    They missed a nice window of opportunity.


    Re: Undisguised AM Rapide caught

    much better than initially thought. however, it's gonna be double panamera turbo money i guess.

    Absolutely. I guess that's the problem of a small manufacturer like AM. Smiley

    I fear that the price of the Rapide will indeed be sky-high. I guess potential Panamera Turbo customers would consider the AM if the price will be something like 30% above the Porsche, but not twice as much. Smiley

    Re: Undisguised AM Rapide caught

    and panamera turbo is most likely going to be the better car....

    Re: Undisguised AM Rapide caught

    Indeed - this pictures look beautiful. Great looking sport-4-door.


    Re: Undisguised AM Rapide caught

    Looks very nice - except, from the front, the roofline looks 'tall' (but they obviously needed to do this for rear headroom) and the design of the rear door shape could be better IMO. Still, it looks very good IMHO

     I don't think the Rapide will be twice the Panamera, that would put it above $300k, not going to happen...

    if the car looks in the metal anywhere close to the concept car shown a couple of years a go in Geneva, it will be amazing...


    Re: Undisguised AM Rapide caught

    I am not a huge fan of this rapide, but it has no competition from the panamera. The rapide is nice looking if not superb whereas the panamera is just UGLY.

    Only a few senna-wannabes give a shit what a sedan does on the NBR. Nobody is going to drift their rapide thru roundabouts. Get real.

    Mercedes still owns the sedan market.
