Aston Martin Rapide S

Post by Swerve on Thu Jan 24, 2013 5:56 am

I know the current car styling trend is over-the-top. Even Kia's look in your face. But Aston probably should try to incorporate this theme without losing the typical classiness. The new Rapide is clearly a 4 door take on the Vantage Zagato rather than an evolution of the outgoing car.

I like it as an alternative for show offs. But it lacks class.

Then again, I just remembered my big problem with the old car was that it looked exactly like the rest of the range with a couple of extra doors. So maybe this is karma for all the people like me who complained about every AM model essentially having the world's best styling.

The grille is definitely too much. It's got a 2nd-gen Chrysler LHS look, which is not good.

It's like there's a competition among car companies on who can have the biggest, ugliest grill. I think Ford trucks are winning.

Yeah, I'm not too big on it myself. it needs to be just a little bit smaller. It's rather ironic though, that they can roll cars that get more and more beautiful: original Rapide, V12 Vantage, V12 Zagato, Virage/new DB9, Vanquish...and then this.
Bad Aston Martin! Bad! No!
