One of Britain's long-lauded luxury brands revealed the Concept in 2006 as the first sedan the marque had produced in years. By the time the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show arrived, a production-ready version of the concept rolled out for the 2010 model year. As a luxury four-door, the car carries the aesthetic language of other of the time, based on a longer version of the luxury coupes’ chassis. Powered by a 5.9-liter V12, the first production series delivered 470 hp to the rear wheels through the six-speed touchtronic automatic gearbox. In spite of its additional length and luxurious heft, the car was capable of reaching 60 mph from a standstill in five seconds flat, and a top speed of 188.5 mph.
Inside the cabin, the was appointed with premium grade walnut, aluminum, and leather, delivering its occupants in roomy and tailored style. A sixteen speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system is hidden beneath the interior panels and dashboard, a fitting touch of crystal clear quality accounted for in the price.
In 2013, the received a facelift and emerged an upgrade option as the S, largely involving an enlarged grille and fascia, and a power increase to 550 hp. With this power increase, a new top speed of 190 mph was achieved in addition to a 4.9 second 0-60 mph time. Shortly following, for 2014, the S received a slight power increase to 552 hp, boosting the top speed up to 203 mph and shortening the 0-60 mph time to 4.4 seconds. Overall, the price stands above the standard car as a result of its superior performance.
The companies first four-door automobile of the millennium carries the marque’s tradition of bold style and performance. We applaud its ability to combine ultimate comfort with performance. Within the DB9-inspired body lies the handcrafted 5.9-liter V12 capable of churning 550 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. Mated to an eight-speed semi-automatic gearbox, it accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds, shearing 0.8 seconds off the base model time. The result is a blistering 203 mph top speed. Exquisite wood, aluminum, and leather surround its passengers inside. Reinforcing the interior’s quality is the 1000-watt BeoSound Rapide sound system.
The modern day Aston Martin has a physical presence unmatched in the industry, and the Rapide sits as the pinnacle of their aesthetic achievement. It’s the way the S looks fast. I love the muscular haunches and the integrated race-inspired aerodynamic aids, such as the front splitter and rear diffuser. They are not just for show either, as this is a seriously fast machine, hitting 190 mph. The well established 6.0-liter V-12 now sits lower and further back in the front and gets more power with 550 horsepower and 457 foot-pounds of torque. By lowering the center of gravity in the car, the handling is more responsive. I definitely could feel that the S is a more nimble version of itself, although the inclusion of the latest Adaptive Damping System is of great help in making the car perform at its best. Now this is the important thing to remember: the Rapide S is a four-door car. The visceral thrill of turning on that big V-12 can be shared with friends, and while you won’t be doing any burnouts, there is a pure energy to the driving experience that is uniquely British.
