Aston Martin Rapide Crash

The Aston Martin Rapide is probably one of the sexiest 4-door coupes to come out in quite some time. Its 6.0-liter V-12 churns out 470 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque and will grant its driver a top speed of 184 mph if they stay in the throttle long enough. Now while this is all well and good, it doesn’t change the fact that you still need to know a thing or two about driving before you pilot one of these $200,000 hot rods. This is Roberto Ricci, designer of all things surfboard and windsurfing related. He’s definitely got talent when it comes to riding the waves, but driving? That’s another story all together. Recently Roberto found himself in somewhat of an embarrassing situation when he ran out of talent while taking a reporter on a little spin. You see poor Roberto decided to press the traction control button while mid-corner which in turn sent the car sliding into the guard rail. Thankfully the only casualty was Ricci’s pride and his new Rapide. Who knows, maybe next time he’ll read the owners manual before he hits the start button.

    Must be nice to have so much money that trashing an Aston Martin is no biggie.

      I wouldn’t say no biggie. He had a look half way between “oh shit” and “whoops” right after the crash. I’m pretty sure his brain was rather upset at him. I think he was trying very hard to play it cool for the camera.
