Sporty yet practical, robust yet aerodynamic, indulgent yet convenient – the Aston Martin Rapide S is a lesson in true balance. As Aston Martin’s only four-door car, it is designed with families in mind and is perfectly tuned for luxurious performance.
Low and wide, it is clear the four-door Rapide S is a sports car at heart. The eye is immediately drawn to the full-face grille. Crafted by hand, it’s an impressive design feature and asks to be admired. The contouring across the body accentuates its stylish curves.
Starting from the front headlights and widening towards the boot, two parallel contours run either side of the car making the width and length even more prominent. Meanwhile, the sculpted lines on the bonnet make a focal point of the grille.
Inside, the fittings are all handmade by craftsmen with the finest attention to detail. Bridge of Weir leather, wood and carbon fibre are just some of the many luxurious materials that are used to clothe this sports car.
A waterfall facia stylishly houses the AMi III infotainment system with its 6.5-inch LCD screen. Positioned centrally, the satellite navigation, phone and music system are within easy reach while driving.
For a superior finish, you can opt to utilise the 'Q by Aston Martin' premium personalisation and customisation service. This personalisation service means you can add special woods, leathers and carbon fibre details to make the interior of your Rapide S as unique as you are.
Proportioned with a near perfect 49:51 front and rear weight ratio, the Rapide S is balanced for an effortless drive. Despite being the only four-door car in the Aston Martin range, it weighs just 1990kg, making it fast and agile. The 6.0-litre AM29 V12 engine will take you to a top speed of 203mph.
Delivering 552bhp and achieving 0-60mph in as little as 4.2 seconds, this is Aston Martin’s most powerful Rapide yet. Thanks to the Adaptive Damping System (ADS), the car automatically adjusts each wheel’s suspension for a smooth ride.
Safety and technology
The three-stage Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Traction Control (TC) and Positive Torque Control (PTC) will keep each of the four wheels firmly on the road when driving around tight bends. The car also comes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) to help you come to a stop quickly, even when travelling at speed.
"Like a British fantasy tale, this is a car girded for the adventure of arriving and the thrill of leaving. It means feeling a shudder when you hear it approaching, gaping as the doors swing up, and getting goose bumps as the engine growls to life." - Car and Driver
