Design

Aston Martins are known to have the looks that impress, and this is no different. The Rapide S comes with an aggressive new look. It receives a new face with a bold full-face aluminum front grille that adds lot of character to the car. The rear also gets a new treatment that improves the overall aerodynamics and aesthetics. The design team managed to achieve nearly perfect weight distribution of 48:52 (front/rear), which makes the car more balanced and controlled.

The car weights just 1990Kgs, thanks to the design changes, which makes the car extremely agile and nimble. The improved vehicle dynamics takes the car performance to a new level altogether.
