No, that’s not the new Ford Fusion. Look closely and you’ll spot the Aston-Martin badge placed carefully on the front end of this vehicle. That means this is the latest four-door Aston, the Rapide S, which has gone through a bit of a face lift to make it faster and more recognizable.
Aston Martin is reportedly working on a Rapide S, which will be much faster than the current Rapide, via a heart transplant involving the DBS’s 510-hp engine. The current Rapide is by no means a slow car. Powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine producing 470-hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, the Rapide is capable of 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds with a top speed of 188mph.
However the time has come to intoduce a much faster, sportier model. The Rapide S will also feature carbon-ceramic brake discs as standard and firmer suspension settings. The Rapide S will arrive later this year and will definetly feature a nice price bump.
Stay tuned for more info!
