Aston Martin has long been a brand which is synonymous with luxury. It appears that with the February launch of the Aston Martin Rapide S, however, they may just have outdone themselves. With its noticeably larger grill and piano black wood interior finish, Aston Martin have chosen to save something very special to mark their 100th birthday this year.

The Rapide S is an upgrade on the existing Rapide model and Aston Martin claim to have created the world’s most beautiful 4-door sports car. It’s hard to argue with that statement. From the striking new front grill and the sleek aerodynamic shell, to the gorgeous hand worked interior, the Rapide S truly epitomises luxury. And for those with their own idea of luxury in mind, the “Q by Aston Martin” service offers a wealth of bespoke options for every taste. The company’s most personalized customization package yet, the Q service permits owners of the Rapide S to create their own bespoke interior and exterior, allowing them to channel their creativity when it comes to everything from choosing the color, to the materials used to upholster the car’s seats.

With all this focus on the luxuriousness and beauty of the car, you may be forgiven for thinking that Aston Martin may have compromised on performance. Nothing, however, could be further from the truth. Aston Martin has succeeded in upgrading the power output of the original Rapide by some 17%, with the Rapide S’ 6 litre V12 engine producing 555bhp, 80bhp more than the original model. This increase in power output has seen the Rapide S’ 0-62mph time fall by three tenths of a second to a staggering 4.9 seconds, with a top speed of 190mph. Astoundingly, this has all been achieved while making the Rapide S more fuel efficient, up from 19.0mpg to 19.9mpg, as well as cutting CO2 emissions by 23g/km to 332g/km.

Unbounded luxury, improved performance, and increased fuel efficiency coalesce to make the February launch of the Aston Martin Rapide S one of the most anticipated luxury car launches in recent times.
