Aston Martin’s been the go-to British two-door grand touring car company for the past 100 years.

So when they think it’s time to forgot tradition and make something entirely new, it’s probably a sign that it’s gonna be something special.

The Aston Martin Rapide S takes the essence of Aston Martin’s grand touring coupes and adds a slice of practicality to the mix.

The Rapide appears at first glance to be a DB9 that’s been stretched and two extra doors tacked on, that was a very intentional design choice.

The Rapide instantly captivated people who always wanted their own British GT car but also had a family of two to lug around, for a luxurious and sporting experience that most people can only dream of.

It can also haul all the groceries and soccer practice gear that any family of that size could ever need.

Before it was the Rapide S, it was just called the Aston Martin Rapide and the car came with 470bhp but with the introduction of the suffixed S the power was increased to 550bhp.

In the shift from Rapide to Rapide S there was also styling updates from which the impressive bolder front grille and slightly larger rear spoiler were the most visible change.

ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC EXAMPLE

This Rapide S is an absolute amazing example finished in an absolute superb color combination of Tungsten Silver with a beautiful Tan interior. The color combination is very well chosen for the car and suits the car perfectly.

The car has driven only 37.000 kilometers since new and must be 1 of the nicest Rapides. The car is in an as new condition.

If the Aston Martin stays in Holland the luxury tax BPM has to be paid on top of the purchase price.

Maintenance has always been carried out at the official Aston Martin dealer and

CONDITION EXTERIOR

Although the Aston Martin Rapide can easily be used on a daily base it is clearly a collectors car.
Amongst the condition it might be clear that the looks of the Rapide S are superb. Definitely this specific example with the large S grille and the slightly larger rear spoiler.
The optional 20 inch multispike wheels make the Rapide an even nicer appearance.

During the past year the car has been very well taken care of resulting in a beautiful exterior condition. When the Aston Martin was newly delivered the car has undergone a so-called glass coating to protect the paint. This has resulted in the fact that the car is in a beautiful overall exterior condition.
We have not been able to find imperfections on the paint such as scratches or dents.
The front window is as new without any stone chips or scratches.
The right front wheel shows a small (parking)damage but this can be relatively easy repaired when requested.
Overall the exterior condition of the Aston Martin is very nice.

CONDITION INTERIOR

Inside, the Rapide is an oase of soft leather, comfortable heavyweight carpet and piano-black wood.

The interior has been very carefully composed colorwise. The upper instrument panel is colored in Biscuit while the seats are covered in Sahara Tan leather.
The carpets have been ordered slightly more dark.
The stitching of the seats have been ordered in the same color as the headlining color.
Alltogether the Aston Martin looks colorwise extremely nice inside.

Condition wise it is almost unbelievable that the car drove 37.000 kilometers because the condition can be best described as wonderful. Except of 1 door rubber the Rapide is in an as new condition interior wise.

Extra’s which clearly upgrade the interior of the Aston Martin is the optional Bang & Olufsen soundsystem and the rear entertainment system with television screens in the headrests which is combined with a 6 DVD player.

The optional sports seats can be at the front cooled and heated via the ventilated seats option.

DRIVING EXPERIENCE

When you take a seat on the drivers seat and look into the sidemirrors, the view is amazing as you can see the design of the rear of the car very well.

Sitting low in its cockpit you’re surrounded by fine materials lovingly fitted by craftsmen.

In our opinion, everything is correct on the design of a Rapide and nothing stops traffic like an Aston Martin Rapide S.

The trademark nose is lifted from the DB9 coupe, but the Rapide S’s long body means it won’t be mistaken for anything else.

The Rapide S is an extremely fast car but still very easy to handle and very very comfortable to drive.

We thing is it’s one of Aston’s best steering and most comfortable driving cars.

The steering’s weighting is near perfect and clever adaptive dampers neatly balance comfort and control.

The Aston Martin Rapide S takes the essence of Aston Martin’s grand touring coupes and adds a slice of practicality to the mix.

This model is already becoming both collectable and recognized as a serious future classic as well as a fabulous car to drive and enjoy.
