Call it global warming, call it climate change, call it never knowing what to wear anymore because the weather's gone insane -- the result is we have both crazy-hot summers and things called polar vortexes, which doesn't seem fair. But it does lead to wishing we had cooled seats more often than we used to. Many cars, including the Aston Martin Rapide S, have optional seats that blow cold air up through perforated seat cushions to de-sweat-ify your bum. Much like the first time you tried heated seats, you'll feel a little weird about this too. But later, you'll wonder how you were ever able to live without a fan blowing air up your keister.
