Your first love. She was everything you thought you wanted. A gorgeous frame with curves worthy of the streets of San Tropez and a fiery attitude that made you go the extra mile to keep her happy, no matter the cost. Blinded by limerence, the two of you went into the sunset thinking it was forever. Then as the years went on, you realize she has no room for you, a thought reciprocated soon after from yourself. The compromises of what was once a fun ride has worn you down into a complacent drone incapable of providing a genuine smile when people ask you how she is doing. No room for friends. No room for your possessions. No time in each other’s lives. But what if she gave you more? What if you could have her every single day?
Enter the 2012 Aston Martin Rapide. This is your ex, but without the compromises. Her sleek lines forming into a flowing orchestra of lust, but 4 doors reminding you that she will be there for you when others enter your life. Cold fall mornings are warmed by sinking into a bolsterous heated and cooled hug that caress you lovingly through any corner that you might find yourself in. Bring your friends along, and she treats them with the same luxuries as the man she loves, pampering them with smooth saddle leather and ample leg room. But she never lets you forget that she is all yours. She knows those days where you really want to be taken for a ride. All it takes is the push of the sport button and a pull of the shifter paddle, and a 470 Horsepower 6 liter V12 connected to the rear mounted trans axle via a carbon fiber driveshaft is at your lascivious dominance.
But the wail of the V12 when the baffles in the exhaust open is only part of why this car is the last love you will ever nurture. With two-mode, adjustable Bilstein shocks, comfort and sport modes are only a button press away. No longer will you argue about which bags to bring or the fact that in the DB9 your rear passengers have to be contortionists by profession. The Rapide takes everything we loved about the DB9, and packages it neatly into a compromise-free object of aching beauty. Only a love that amazes you every single day is genuinely worth holding on to. Hold on you will, because the Rapide is built to be something that truly is for life.
