CCC STATUS REPORT ON ASTON MARTIN RAPIDE
The last four door AM was the Lagonda. The Rapide thankfully is nothing like it. AM is looking at ways to increase the number of derivatives from the VH platform. Since it has no historical links it is hard to determine how buyers respond to such a new car.

When Aston Martin's lifeline with Ford was severed, project Rapide (which was already shown to the public as a concept car at the 2006 Detroit Motor Show) had been consigned to cold storage. Had the project not been set aside, the Rapide could well have been ready to do battle with the Panamera as early as last year.
However Ford, who were at that time its owner, shelved the plans as they were undergoing a massive restructuring themselves to keep afloat. In 2007 after more than a year's delay the new owners of Aston Martin, a Kuwaiti conglomerate and David Richards from Prodrive eagerly gave the final green light to the Rapide project.

While its styling is not as reserved as the Porsche 996 C4S, it certainly is not as flamboyant as the Maserati GranSport. Following the sensuous styling cues of the DB9, the Vantage V8 appears to be an abbreviated version of that large elegant coupe, now closely approximating the dimensions of the Porsche 911. However the decidedly suave styling is a clear win for the seductive Vantage V8, generating a strong visceral response from any angle.
