Purple V8 Vantage & Black Rapide

Hey everyone,

I've been on this forum for a while now but haven't introduced myself, I own a 2010 V8 Vantage (bought new) on Nov 2009, i have 9000 km on it and it's my garage queen. I love everything about the car and i am truly obsessed with ASTON MARTIN and i will always be. I've been looking at a slightly used Rapide model 2011 with only 8000 km on it, it is black with black wheels (painted) and red interior. I fell in love as soon as i saw that car, it was meant to be mine. It was in excellent condition a lot of stuff were not used at all. Long story short i bought the Rapide and gladly still own the V8V too. I can't compare the two cars because they are totally different. The V8 Vantage is a sport fun car but on the other hand the Rapide is also sporty and fun but with elegance and luxury.

My V8V has a special color called "Riffa" with red fox interior, not everyone might like it, but i will welcome all comments.

And these are a few pics of the Rapide i got yesterday! I also added a pic of the interior from the dealership's site because i didn't have the chance to take a lot of pics yet.

Couldn't settle for that interior pic, went to the garage and snapped a quick pic.

Thank you, i appreciate it! I was between a lot of colors but ended up with this.

EDIT:

I forgot to ask, if anyone knew where i could find the round cover for the number plate frame (hitch hole) since i removed my front plate.

Like this?

Love the Rapide. Kudos for having the cojones to riff that "Riffa"; not my idea of an Aston colour, and not to my taste, but attention grabbing at any rate!

Thank you all so much!

No one knows about the tiny circle I could put to cover that hole in my bumper?

V12V will become famous soon enough
Go to your Aston dealer for the cover.
Very nice cars. Nice to see something besides black or silver.

I can get you a new toe hook cover for your Rapide. It is $35 plus $25 for painting it black. Let me know if you are interested.

Nice set of cars. I'm hoping to have one of each in my garage in the near future.
