Oops. I couldn't see the person in the light blue shirt, so I thought there was another one right next to it!

Hang on, that's the Infinity basement. I remember because I took delivery there too. Isn't the showroom up and running already? Or are they still using the Infinity facility?

Yes that is the Infinity basement. The Astons are delivered from here for now. The showroom isnt up and running yet. The first two Rapides were also delivered this way.

Saw a Grey Rapide at Bandra today. It looks much better in the flesh. No pics as the car was on the other side.

Saw a Rapide near the HP petrol bunk next to the Juhu Police Station a week ago. It looks fantastic, much better than even the Quattroporte IMO.

saw a grey rapide on the chirstmas night parked right outside sea-princess / triology.

looked great!!
the rear door handles are actually difficult to spot.

though i wonder why was this car registered as MP 09.
premium number maybe.

Saw another black Rapide on Marine Drive, and this is different black one from the pictures which dippy and theragingbull posted. Notice the different wheels. What a looker it is, couldnt help myself from stopping and parking my car just to gawk at the gorgeous peice of metal. Sorry for the crappy pics.

The pics were not attached for some reason, posting again.

Love the way the Honda Accord parked on the extreme right side just blends with the rest of the imports. It doesn't look out of place at all! Good job, Honda!

The Rapide looks fantastic, but a little understated. Perhaps I need to see it in the flesh!
