    Very nice ....this gives a target for Porsche to shoot at with the Panamera.

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    Not bad at all!!! One for me please!!!


    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    Looking good! (just like all recent Astons... )

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    British cars cant be beat for poise....Looks super.

    Have that with a chauffer
    The DB9 Volante for the good weather
    The Vanquish S to park outside your favourite night spot
    and the AMV8 as the loaner car for your girlfriends

    hah that would be something

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    Cool Ron,

    I'll have to ask my dealer about it when I'm in Florida later this month. You probably aren't surprised I'm asking this, BUT: Any rumour of a supercharged version-the Rapide S?

    Haven't heard anything on that yet Al. I know there was a recent rumor of RS version but not the S.

    Very nice indeed!

    Looks great

    AsTon Rapide? Does this Aston mean that Bond happens across Angelina Jolie and her kids in the next 007 Film?

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    Here's the previous AM Rapide from the early '60's.

    Nice pictures Ray, thanks .

    Is your V8 almost here yet?

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    Wow
    That is the coolest car I have seen in a long time, I love that the longer wheelbase makes it look even lower and sleeker, I hope they build it! And if they do, and coincidentally launch it say a year before the Panamera, the Porsche could face some stiff competition. Because the Rapide will be infinitely cooler than any Porsche could ever hope to be, even though the Panamera will probably be a better drive.
    (Thanks Ron )

    Now this is one sexy picture (from Top Gear) :

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    Ron,

    My V8 is scheduled for production in February with delivery to Dallas in April (fingers crossed). The cars seem to be making their way out of the factory slower than expected (as is par for the course for Aston) so I don't really know when it will arrive. I will definitely post some pics and hopefully positive initial review as soon as I can.

    I am not generally a fan of four door cars but I think Aston has done a great job with the Rapide concept / DB9L. I would have bet I wouldn't like it until I saw the pics. I think most people were expecting the V8 Vantage Volante to be the next big product intro from Aston Martin so this was an unexpected pleasant suprise. Can't wait to see the new Vanquish...

    WOW!!!!...um, maserati who? hahahaha, that is GREAT... one could buy that car and not try to be a playboy and take it to work EVERYDAY without showing off.

    Well, a 4-door-AM should be twice the price of a Quattroporte...

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    I'll pay it. The thing looks understated but 20x's better looking (on the outside) than the maserati.... the interior of the maserati on the other hand....really is a thing of beauty.

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    It definitely has overtones of the new Citroen C6:

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    I actually think it looks awkward from certain angles, where the massive length tends to overpower the DB9 nose and rear. In essence, it looks like a stretched DB9. Would have liked to see a bit more differentiation, but it looks nice.

    At first glance, I had the same thought, but then I realized my brain was comparing it to the DB9. And the longer I stared, the more the classic Fisker-penned lines integrated into a 4-door sedan visually pleased me. But I'm not ready to trade in my Audi S4 yet. Plus I need AWD for winter-who knows, maybe a Rapide S Quattro?

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    Thanks for the pics!!

    Amazing, the Aston design department does it again.... I have never seem a "four door" look sooo good!

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    absolutely stunning!!


    Aston's use of LED for both rearlight AND headlights is precedent setting as well here~~~


    i wonder what Maser Q-porte owners think???

    Re: 4 door Aston Martin

    This car IS the 4-door coupe the Mercedes CLS NEVER WAS!
    Never had I imagined a 4-door can look this good!
    And it's a hatchback like the Vantage, not a boot like the DB9. Brilliant. Just brilliant.
