    AM Rapide - 1st official picture

    Re: AM Rapide - 1st official picture

    Maybe it will look better in a darker colour, as I just don't feel it.  When I went to the launch of the DBS, I didn't like it either (in silver).  But recently I was shown one in Casino Royale (the colour, not the movie) and thought it looked rather stunning.


    Re: AM Rapide - 1st official picture

    Looks like an Aston Martin version of a Panamera... both elongated designs are compromises to accommodate 4 doors and 4 passengers...

    I am considering my option for a 4 door car in the next 2 years, but I don't think either the Panamera nor Rapide will cut the mustard.  Too low, not roomy enough.  RR4?


    Re: AM Rapide - 1st official picture

    Look at that rear pillar... must be a nightmare in busy traffic due to the limited rear view.

    CLS or Tesla S, even if gas powered the tesla is hot, gotta wait for the fisker too.

    I don't think the Tesla will be sold here yet.  I love the fact that it can fit 5 people in comfort.  But I love the shape of the Rolls Royce!  (eventhough it is technically a concept right now)

    Aston Martin are not marketing the car as a proper 4 passenger car. According to their statements the pair of rear seats are for ‘children or two adults on shorter journeys.’ Don’t go expecting the Rapide to be a proper alternative to full four-seaters such as the Panamera or the CLS then.

    They will sell a few cars to the "vanity conscious" but I don't expect it to make a great impact on the automobile world or on A-M's poor finances

    And the above is a major mistake from AM.

    Tesla S sitting in the local Tesla showroom in Menlo Park ( near Palo Alto )  if anyone wants to check it out.

    four doors and not full rear seats ?? how silly is that.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Re: AM Rapide - 1st official picture

    Look where the front seatback is in the picture. It's half way into the rear door window!

    I bet you an old Lambo Espada will have more rear seat room...

    call Porsche designers lazy, these guys didn't even bother with changing the lights. Both the DB9 and this thing have ruined each other. Let's make EVERY Aston look EXACTLY the same

    It's a four door 2+2.

    Something like the Mazda RX8 but little longer.

    Re: AM Rapide - 1st official picture

     Nice - but 3 years too late IMHO. 

    The DB9 styling is starting to look dated.
