Video: Aston Martin design chief on new Rapide

Published: 03 December 2009

CAR recently caught up with Aston Martin design chief Marek Reichman – on board one of the first Aston Rapides to be built. You can watch our video interview in the player below, as CAR contributor Guy Bird interviews Reichman.

He talks about the new Rapide, and why it shouldn't be seen as a rival for a Merc S-class or even a Porsche Panamera, the crazy new Cygnet – a Toyota iQ by Aston Martin – and the new million-pound One-77 hypercar.

We apologise for the sound quality on this video, but it's a good opportunity to hear Aston Martin's design chief in full swing.
