LETTER OF THE WEEK
The cover story
last week was informative and entertaining (loved the photography, particularly the cover image) but what struck me was just how impractical the supposedly practical Rapide S is.
You wouldn’t want to put your enemies in those two back seats; there appears to be very little space there indeed. I suppose the kids wouldn’t mind, but adults would. I bet taking the bus rather than squeezing into the back of the Aston would be a more attractive proposition. No doubt, it looks fab and performs amazingly. But why make it a four-door when four adults can’t actually enjoy it?
The Maserati strikes the best balance; lots of power, good looks, a proper back bench and it’s priced to sell. Hope Aston has been taking notes!
