Aston Martin event draws 90
Charles Hurst in the North has experienced great interest in the Rapide already with at least three orders from the South, and expects to sell around 10 models by the end of the summer. A Rapide event held by Charles Hurst attracted 90 very interested parties. The Aston Martin manager there is John West, who estimates that the price will be around the €260,000 mark for the 470bhp car which will do 303kmh and accelerate to 100kmh in 5.3 seconds. You won't get much more than 18 miles to the gallon, or 15 litres will take you 100km. The emissions are a shattering 355g/km making the road tax a very solid €2,100.
