Rapide S 2013–present
The Rapide S, launched in January 2013, represented a significant evolution of Aston Martin’s four-door sports car. A more aggressive grille and headlight treatment gave it considerably more road presence, while, under the bonnet, variable valve timing and a new management system lifted the power of the V12 from 470 to 550bhp, dropping the 0-60mph time to just 4.8sec. In late 2014, the S was given an extensive refresh, which included the introduction of an eight-speed gearbox and a host of detail refinements.
Specification Engine 5935cc, V12 power 550bhp @ 6750rpm Torque 457lb ft @ 5500rpm 0-60mph 4.8sec Top speed 190mph
