Video: Vintage Aston Martin Serves as First Ride for Royal Newlyweds-New Rapide Offers Practicality

For the millions glued to television sets around the world for the royal wedding, even non-gearheads noticed the vintage Aston Martin that shuttled the royal newlyweds from Westminster Abbey.  The brand is now offering a bit more practicality in its luxury car lineup, with the new Aston Martin Rapide (Video at bottom of post).

Shortly after exchanging vows, Prince William whisked Kate Middleton off in his dad’s vintage Aston Martin.  The Aston Martin brand has lengthy English roots, and became quite famous with the introduction of James Bond movies.  You can experience the first from the company with our Aston Martin Rapide rental!

The classic 2-door coupe layout of the Aston is being expanded upon with a 4-door luxury sedan style Rapide.  It is the first Aston to feature four doors, an attempt to perhaps cater to other market segments while still retaining the British tradition of exclusivity, power and luxury.

The Aston Martin Rapide is being touted as an ‘everyday driver’, which may sound batshit crazy, yet the 4-door Porsche Panamera has experienced some success in that arena.  With the pedal pressed toward the future, Aston accelerates toward a day when their luxury cars are used for far more than a weekend pleasure drive.

While I cannot quite imagine the backseat of an Aston Martin luxury car laden with groceries, it could have the potential to transport little heirs to the throne someday!  I’m looking at you, Will & Kate…let’s just not become Will & Kate plus 8…no one has recovered from being subjected to that trash!
