The New Aston Martin Rapide S

By Chris Boyle

AstonThe world’s most beautiful four-door sports car.

An assertive new look. Intensified performance. Enhanced luxury and an even greater scope for personalisation.

The new Aston Martin Rapide S is a compelling and comprehensively improved evolution of Aston Martin’s ground-breaking, four-door sports car.

Following a unique recipe using the finest ingredients in the automotive industry, the Rapide S is a car like no other. Its elegant and perfectly proportioned lines have been enhanced with anassertive new full-face aluminium grille and re-profiled front bumper, giving it terrific presence.

At the rear, a new tailgate features a more aggressively upswept “flip,” to create a more dynamic profile and increase aerodynamic stability at high speed.

Outside, as inside, the sporting character of the Rapide S can be accentuated with a choice of bold new options. Exterior and Interior Carbon-Fibre packs use exposed Carbon-Fibre detailing to bold effect, while new 10-spoke forged alloy wheels inject just the right amount of visual attitude.

The Rapide S backs its more aggressive appearance with truly breathtaking performance. Thanks to an all-new, 6.0-liter, 558 PS V12 engine, it is the most powerful and exciting Rapide ever. In addition, significant gains in torque below 4000 rpm ensure its performance is also more accessible than ever before.

Other technical highlights include a sophisticated new 3-stage Adaptive Damping System (ADS), which enables the Rapide S to exploit its increased potency, yet retain the unrivalled ability to cosset four adult occupants in complete luxury.
