People are talking about a more powerful version of the Aston Martin Rapide ever since the standard model was dropped onto the market in 2010. In the past few months, the new Rapide S has been caught testing a few times, and now it has finally made its world debut.
The new Rapide S replaces the old Rapide in the company’s lineup and has been described as “the most powerful four-door Aston Martin to date.” The model is powered by an improved version of the new AM11 naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V-12 powerplant that adds in some extra ponies.
Along with the engine improvement, the Rapide S will receive a revised front grille and rear lip spoiler. There is also an optional Carbon Exterior Pack that further improves the sporty appearance of the luxury sedan.
The new Aston Martin Rapide S will be put on sale next month.
