Rapid by name and nature: the Aston Martin Rapide

This video is 1 minute and 4 seconds of utter bliss, taking a long look at one of the best looking modern cars out there. 

The Aston Martin Rapide features one of the best designs on the planet, and a mean, hungry engine to match, making this every little boys dream car. On the turf this British motor looks superb, while inside the monitors in the headrests, the leather, even the cup holders look impressive and well designed. The heart rate increases when the flat key goes in, and then that roaring engine will send it off the scale. Better seen in the Riviera than this drab urban setting, this is still an amazing looking example of British motoring.
