Vlog: Test Driving the new Aston Martin Rapide S in and around London town

It’s not everyday you get the chance to drive a sports car around London town – especially when said sports car is a sophisticated four door machine. Aston Martin loaned us the Rapide S for one weekend and let’s just say we had a little too much fun seeing exactly what a four door sports car is capable of. While it was a massive beast, it, and to quote a Pretty Woman line, “cornered like it was on rails.” This is a car worthy of so much more than a few simple pictures. The car itself was statuesque and commanded attention from every person we passed, but the true beauty in this vehicle lay in what is was capable of doing on the road itself. And, let’s just say the Aston Martin Rapide S seems to be happiest when it’s being tested. We took it from city streets to open road outside of London and the car seemed to display a bit of a split personality. It was elegant and luxurious in London, purring for pedestrians. But, when let loose on the freeway, it took on a rather devilish persona. The Aston Martin Rapide S wanted to speed. It wanted to rule the roads and who were we to let such a beauty down? Don’t worry – we were mostly good. However, it must be said that the ride, in both the city and the country, was a thing of sheer beauty. There is comfort found in this elegant hunk that not many would hope to find in such a speed demon. Here I am doing all the writing when I swore I’d just give a simple and refined introduction to the video of the whole experience. I could sit here and wax lyrical all day, but let’s let the video do that talking…
