    Just came back from seeing the Rapide at Galpin Aston Martin.
    Great design. Beautiful!!
    The interior is a lot like the Vantage(same dash). The back seats have an amazing amount of room.
    I wish them succes.

    Seems like the only thing setting these new cars apart is some of the signature brand touches that are throw backs from one of their earlier models. This thing reminds me of the M Gran Turismo with AM touches.

    They fold down along with the trunk separator and create a large luggage area. Getting out of the back seat was difficult. The rear door is a swan, kinda like a scissor door, but it only goes up maybe 20 degrees.

    I like the rear seats. The interior was white and looked great, but I don't have kids or a dog, so the practicality of rear white buckets is no big deal to me.


    Pics anyone?
