Car Style - The Aston Martin Rapide

John Marine | 3/29/2010 08:43:00 PM | |
Aston Martin's Rapide is a four-door luxury-type sports car. Most Aston Martins since the DB7 have been nothing short of beautiful. There are a lot of people who hate the idea of a four-door sports car. Maybe since sports cars were NOT designed for putting multiple people inside. As much as I like a car that's sexy and fast, there's no need to hate on it just because you can't put extra people inside. Even I'd prefer something like an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish over something like a four-door Bentley, but there's no reason to hate on this car, if you do.

This blog entry concerns how I feel about the style of the Aston Martin Rapide. Don't expect a review on performance or anything. Welcome to another Car Style blog entry of mine!

--- Car Style: The Aston Martin Rapide ---
Here is the car:

For what it's worth, the Aston Martin Rapide has as much of the bold sex appeal of recent Aston Martins as any other. The front of the car boasts the same lovely grill designs of most recent Aston Martins. Long, yet bold headlights light up the darkness. The hood of the car is beautifully aggressive. While an Aston Martin coupe is sexy as it is, this sedan offers exceptional and exquisite style. Its side profile literally exudes executive level charm. It has a four-door appearance while also looking more like a stretched coupe. Evidence of this can be found in how the side pillars are designed in relation to the rest of the car. A lovely set of nine double spoke wheels accentuate the tires. The four-door design is pretty lovely, even if it isn't a Maserati or Mercedes-Benz (though I'm not really a Maserati fan). It has the same kind of gas cap design and placement as an Aston Martin V12 Vanquish. While the Rapide may not have the bold fenders of the V12 Vanquish or any of the Aston Martin coupes, this car does not lack character. The rear of the car features lovely rear lights, a subtle rear spoiler, and a pair of nice mufflers.

From within, this car has a beautiful instrument panel and lovely center console. Beautiful and comfortable seating compliments the front row and 2nd row.

Really, this car can be thought of as a four-door V12 Vanquish, though not exactly with the bulging fenders and appeal of a sports coupe. It's a beautiful car whether you fancy this sporty sedan or not. Great car! Thank you for reading!
