Day one – Valencia, Spain.
Five years ago Aston Martin boss Ulrich Bez, told the six-foot plus Aston Martin Director of Design Marek Reichmann, that he wanted him to build the most beautiful four-door sports car in the world.
That’s easier said than done, but if you know Ulrich Bez, you also know that he means what he says.
From what I have seen tonight in Valencia albeit briefly, that job is done.
While no one can deny that the accompanying shots of the Aston Martin’s Rapide clearly show the car to be stunningly beautiful, its only when you see it in the metal for the first time, do you realise that the competition may as well pack up their tools and go home.
