  • Ive been really considering an M3 or C63 AMG S for my upcoming 20th birthday, but thats a V12. Those do not have V12s. I like that V12. This is the same price. Im getting the V12.

  • My local Aston Martin dealer has a new unsold 2017 Rapide S sitting on their lot for $170,000. It's a hell of a deal, just need $170,000…

  • I know it’s not perfect but the competition just can’t bring the sheer beauty and sex appeal of this beast. I don’t care about Mercedes fancy touch screen displays, I don’t care about Panamera’s practicality and performance….when you cruise down a busy high street in a V12 Aston, YOU are the man, all eyes on you! Love it…..getting one!

  • this is the perfect car for a car enthusiast, it has it all a sexy sounding v12, luxury and 4 doors. this is perfect for getting girls, going on the track and have ur friends getting lit in the back seat. Porsche and cls 63 is cool but the only thing that will compete with the Rapide s is if the mad a 4 door Aventador.

  • I work from home but travel a lot. I want this slice of sexy not for going to the grocery store or running errands but instead to increase the fun factor of being in the car for long road trips.

  • I don't work so I don't commute but I love cars! Yes you can go faster in some other cars (not many as this Aston will crack 200mph!) and you can look more of a douche (gold plated Lamborghini), or you could go for soulless German efficiency (Mercedes, Porsche…) but Aston gives you everything; speed, soundtrack, heritage, race pedigree, craftsmanship, beauty and relative rarity. If you really want to feel special and stand out from the crowd, THIS is the weapon of choice!

  • from home to work an errands for work throughout the day. i would just buy one of the amg sclass sedans. its the right tool for the job. dealer network for repairs an maintenance makes it easy to own.if forced to pick a car more like the aston… panamera for all the same reasons.

  • When he mentioned the competition he forgot the Ferrari FF (now the gtc4 lusso) which is the rapides only rival as far as price and spec. I'm sure he excluded it because its a two door four seater and the others have four doors.

  • I have a 2 and a half hour commute through the Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts during the warm months and typically travel on business in the colder months that said I live alone and would definitely get the Rapide s love the way it looks could definitely use the get up and go I like the four doors even though I don't need them I appreciate the availability in fact I'm heading to the Waltham dealership to get one so excited

  • I live in Santa Clarita, and I have facilities 20 minutes away, and San Diego (2.5 hours away)… Ideally, I'd commute in an M5 – possibly just a decked-out 7 series. No longer interested in the Aston – my 2 year-old would have more space in a 3-series than this thing.

  • We drove the Rapide S on the Goodwood race circuit and around the public roads nearby, absolutely awesome car with a gorgeous exhaust note, despite some age to the design it still delivered on handling and it's a comfortable car to cruise or hit the sport mode and go track driving with. Aston will bring updates through the range soon, as the DB11 shows they have great ideas for the interior, engine development and exterior styling, so don't buy that S63 Merc just yet as Aston Martin has lots more to offer

  • What do you drive or prefer for a daily commute MotoMan?

    Zayn Manning May 31, 2020 10:34 pm Reply
  • The car needs an update for 2017 or 2018 at least. In the update they need to update the infotainment system, add rear seat leg and head space also give the exterior a refresh.

  • The rear seats look somewhat uncomfortable

  • Whilst fascinating the car itself reminds me of the horrible oiks that drive them here in the UK particularly London,where they delight in splashing us mere plebeians as we await our buses,oiks indeed!
    With that sort of money for my daily commute from darkest Chelsea to Mayfair I would choose a host of Ferragamos and hoof to work in gorgeous shoes with foot care thrown in.Just a thought.

  • This is tricky one, I would probably go with the G65 AMG, tho this might be my Armenian side coming out but i really like the car, you sit real high, it's powerful, it's loud, it's fairly comfortable, and it's practical, although the engine is a little outdated and the price is a little too high, i think it that's what i would put my money at! My commute consists of two back and forth journeys from Burbank to woodland hills, so a total of about 60-80 miles a day.

    (Just thinking about owning that car makes me smile, btw nice reviews, you just got a new subscriber)
