the power of luxury the art of aston martin 4 5

take the best and make it better the rapide s was created to a simple but exacting brief take the best and make it better beauty elegance and proportion are all essential qualities that every aston martin has to possess the original rapide was a triumph because it took the aesthetic blueprint from our rakish two-seater coupes and created an indulgent four-seat four door sports car that was every bit as cohesive and every inch an aston martin since its introduction in 2009 no four door car in the world has come close to replicating the rapide s breath-taking style until now that is with the new rapide s it was of vital importance to us that in giving the rapide s a more assertive look we also preserved its magical purity of line and proportion now whether you view it from the front rear or in profile the rapide s unquestionably has a more forceful presence yet maintains that all-important subtlety and restraint free from embellishment and visual clutter it s this immaculate

so immersive you will forget you are in a four-seater sports car one of the truly unique qualities of the rapide s is that while it pays close attention to the needs of its passengers it never forgets that an aston martin is a car for drivers with perfect alignment of seat steering wheel and pedals and an inspiring view down that long swooping bonnet the driving environment is every bit as special as that of our more focussed sports gt and super gt models clear design tactility and a sense of connection are paramount and from the moment you slip behind the steering wheel you feel in total command of the car intuitive ergonomics fine visibility and the sensory satisfaction of materials such as glass switches are thoughtful and satisfying completing a driving experience so immersive you will forget you are in a four-seater sports car 18 19
