Aston Martin Rapide – Official Valencia videoSat, 20 Feb 2010 00:00:00 -0800
We have official video of the Aston Martin Rapide from Valencia
Back at the start of February Aston Martin flew the world’s media to Valencia to party with the new Aston Martin Rapide. Even though Cars UK didn’t get an invite we decided to shove up a review of the Rapide covering what we knew from all the bumph Aston Martin had sent us and the opinions we’d formed from seeing the car.
It wasn’t sour grapes – although it would have been nice to be asked – but looking at the reviews written by those who went on the ‘Jolly’ we were pretty much on the money. Still, we’re looking forward to having the Rapide for a few days before long so we can see what the first Aston Martin saloon in a generation is like to live with. Even if we end up having to twist the arm of a friendly AM dealer to achieve that end.
To add to the review we managed to get hold of some B-Roll footage of the Rapide shot in the hills around Valencia to give you some half-decent VT. But as with all B-Roll footage it’s a bit same-ey. So we were happy to see that Aston Martin kept themselves busy in Valencia by doing a video of their own of the Rapide, which is much more interesting.
