At a cost price within touching distance of AED 1M, you’d expect the rear-view parking camera in the 2019 Aston Martin Rapide AMR to be in HD. It is not.
Instead, you get something akin to grainy CCTV footage – complete with parking line assists that are equally difficult to make out. In fact, the whole tech package feels dated right down to the phone icon on the in-car screen that depicts a retro mobile phone with an aerial.
Compared to the bleeding edge tech of, say, the Bentley Continental GT, it’s a huge disappointment. But then, this car isn’t about lounging around and admiring the dials -it’s about going fast. Really fast. And feeling amazing as you do.
What the 2019 Aston Martin Rapide AMR lacks in gizmos, it more than makes up for in pure driving joy.
