Rapide S - Design Designed to be an Aston Martin, but designed to be different - Rapide S features all-new, assertive design cues unique to our four-door sports car. Rapide S - Design Rapide S Design Technical Multimedia Test Drive HEAVENLY BODY, DEVILISH DETAILS While remaining faithful to its predecessor’s elegant and perfectly proportioned lines, the Rapide S has been given a stronger and more confident look, thanks to an assertively styled, full-face aluminum grille. Set within a re-profiled front bumper, the Rapide S has a newfound confidence and tremendous presence, yet remains instantly recognizable as an Aston Martin. A PERFECT MARRIAGE OF FORM AND FUNCTION At the rear, the tailgate features an aggressively upswept ‘flip’ to create a more dynamic profile and increase aerodynamic stability at high speed. Below, an aerodynamic diffuser has been integrated into the rear valance to better manage the airflow exiting beneath the rear of the car, and to mirror the boldness of the overtly sporty frontal treatment. SINGULAR VISION, SHARED PLEASURE Fashioned from the same fine materials with the same obsessive attention to quality and detail, the rear passengers’ compartment of the Rapide S is just as enticing as the front. Individually sculpted rear seats provide ample support, yet are yielding enough to be comfortable over extended distances. The raised sweep of the central console serves as a built-in armrest as well as a place to stow drinks. Zoned air conditioning ensures rear seat passengers can enjoy their own climate independent from the climate in the front. SUPERB CRAFTSMANSHIP, SUPREME COMFORT To travel in the Rapide S is to be immersed in a uniquely spacious and indulgent environment. It’s one that stimulates your senses, yet isolates you from unwanted stress and strain. With a wider choice of interior colors, trim and detailing options – including quilted leather patterns, Alcantara options and a selection of duotone perforated leathers– you can further emphasize the sporting nature of the Rapide S, while retaining the richness, luxury and craftsmanship that makes it such an extraordinary and enticing place to be.
