I think few people understand exactly why consumers go out and buy an Aston Martin over, say, a Ferrari/Maserati, Porsche or anything else on the market.
Being that it's a proper British marque — I am looking at you Bentley and Rolls-Royce — there's a bit of fear about reliability and how durable it really it is. And because few people have owned them, there isn't much of a consensus in that department.
What I do know is that these vehicle's cachet is through the roof. They look gorgeous, sound lovely and have the perceived quality as EVO's Harry Metcalfe says "a bank vault." And this is just the gentleman that can speak to vehicle and why you'd want one.
Even better, Metcalfe compares the four-door Rapide to his personal Maserati Gran Turismo. While they don't line up when new cars, according to Metcalfe in the used market they're pretty close in price.
That said, enough of the chit chat, let's get down and dirty with the details...
