2014 Aston Martin Rapide S Introducing the new Aston Martin Rapide S, a welcomed upgrade to one of the finest four-door sports cars on the market. The Rapide S gets subtle enhancements in design as well as a range of performance upgrades starting with the introduction of the all-new Rapide Gen 4 AM11 engine, the most technologically advanced, most powerful Rapide engine the British coach maker has ever built. It’s all in the numbers — a sprint time of only 4.9 secs, 457 lb-ft of torque and potent power of 550 horses – an increase of more than 17% over our previous model. The Rapide S also accomplishes a near perfect 48:52 front / rear weight distribution without any compromise in design or features. The latest iteration of the Rapide features a new rear deck profile which enhances aerodynamics as well as a new full-face aluminium grille honed as a single piece by hand which creates a striking front profile. The 2014 Aston Martin Rapide S is set to hit showrooms this summer with a price set around the $200,000 mark.
