Our Rapide S arrived after a year with a lovely red Italian, but the years were catching up with us and it made our backs hurt, so the search was on for an iconic sports car with seating for four, luggage space, comfort and performance - Why didn't I think of the Rapide S before I ask ? We acquired ours in 2015 with 1000 miles on the clock from the Aston dealer in Amersham (since closed - nothing to do with me). These past years the Rapide S has taken us to France, Spain, Portugal and around the UK including Scotland in the utmost comfort. Our Grandchildren easily sorted out the back seat DVD entertainment with screens inbuilt into the backs of the front seats and the Bose Infrared headsets. The backs of the rear seats fold flat providing extra luggage capacity needed for a drive to Southampton and a four week voyage on Queen Mary 2.
Furthermore, push the right buttons and the Rapide S is one of the fastest Astons out there! Apologies for a V8 plate, but I've had that for 20 years!!
