The Aston Martin Rapide S is a four-door ultra-luxury sedan that borrows styling elements and mechanical components from the brand's elegant sports cars. Though many of its rivals serve up more space for the rear passengers, the Rapide S does offer enough room for four adults to go along with its exotic looks and impressive performance. Recent Changes For the latest model year, the Rapide S gains an eight-speed automatic transmission and a new infotainment system. Overview With sinewy flanks, perfect proportions and a gracefully sloping roofline, the Rapide S is a dead ringer for Aston Martin's DB9 coupe – except, of course, for its extra set of rear doors. One element that sets the Rapide S apart is its massive, one-piece front grille, which came as part of the recent update and stands in start contrast to the two-tiered grille configuration of the rest of Aston's lineup. Power comes from Aston's hand-built 5.9-liter V12 engine that produces 550 horsepower and 465 lb-ft. of torque. A specifically tuned eight-speed automatic transmission allows the driver to change gears automatically or manually via the steering column-mounted magnesium paddles. The Rapide S is capable of rocketing to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 203 mph. Gas mileage checks in at 14 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. An adaptive damping system offers three different suspension settings – “Normal,” “Sport” and “Track” – to allow the driver to prioritize handling or ride comfort as desired. They system also takes sensor readings from the car's systems, including throttle position, brake position, steering wheel rotation and vehicle speed, to determine driving conditions and configure the damping accordingly. Life Aboard Inside, the cabin is marked exquisite leather upholstery, aluminum and piano black trim (a variety of woods are also available) and alcantara. The well-bolstered seats are more than up to the task of keeping occupants in place during spirited backroad romps while also providing long-distance comfort. While overall design and execution of front of the interior is superb, there are a couple of ergonomic quirks to note. First, the instrument panel gauges are arranged in a counter-clockwise setup, which is slightly odd but ultimately something most drivers will likely get used to. Second, and of more serious concern, the navigation system feels about a decade behind what's available in, say, a modern Kia, and the location of its small pop-up screen at the top of the center stack makes it feel like an afterthought. At the rear, the interior features two bucket seats separated by a tall center console. While comfortable enough, they don't feature as much leg or headroom as can be found in more conventional sedans of the Rapide S' size. Similar Cars Aston Martin Rapide S Continuing the successful brand partnership between Bang & Olufsen and Aston Martin, the Rapide S is fitted standard with the 1000 watt BeoSound Rapide – a bespoke sound system tailored specifically to the Rapide. It includes 15 speakers that have been optimally located throughout the cabin to deliver the audiophile-level sound quality. Optional Extras Options include cooled front and rear seats, a DVD entertainment system complete with a 6-disc player and two LCD screens, along with a plethora of interior finishes, such as: Eye Maple, Olive Ash Burl, Double Apex Alloy and matching wood door trim. Various other interior and exterior components can be customized as well, ranging from wheels, to brake caliper finish to Magnum silver rear lamp infills. An available Piano Black interior pack adds a deep, mirror-like shine to the center console, transmission tunnel center plate and door handles along with a dark surround in the instrument binnacle and steering wheel. Blend headlinings in either tan or grey round out the package. Like other Aston models, the Rapide S offers a Carbon Exterior pack that includes a carbon fiber front splitter, rear diffuser, mirror caps and rear lamp infills. Occupant Safety The Rapide S comes standard with dual front, front side and full-length side curtain airbags in addition to traction and stability control systems, electronic brakeforce distribution and a tire pressure monitoring system. Key Competitors Those in the market for a highly luxurious sedan with a bit of sporting flair can consider alternative to the Rapide S such as the Porsche Panamera Turbo S, which features stupefying acceleration along with controversial styling, the Bentley Continental Flying Spur, which offers up a spacious and pampering interior, and the value-priced (in comparison) Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT S.

The 2014 Rapide S, which we drove early in 2013, boosted output from the 5.9-liter V-12 engine to 550 hp, making it Aston Martin’s most powerful four-door ever. The result was a reduction in 0–60 mph time to 4.7 seconds and an increased top speed of 190 mph. Visually, the Rapide S was differentiated with a large grille that dropped the horizontal cross-bar for a more open-mouthed look; aerodynamic enhancements to the front splitter and integrated rear deck-lid spoiler; and other subtle details. Inside, the Rapide S’s optional Duotone perforated red-and-black leather was a first for Aston Martin; other elements were largely untouched from the original Rapide.

Introduced in late 2009 with first deliveries in 2010, the Aston Martin Rapide was initially produced under contract by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria, but as of 2012, production moved to the brand’s home base in Gaydon, England. Regardless of where it’s built, however, the Rapide exudes a style only Aston Martin offers, along with performance rarely found in an ultra-luxury sedan.

While other four-doors are sober and serene, the sexy Rapide S is flat-out berserk. Shaped like a fighter-jet canopy, built from aluminum panels so pretty they shouldn’t be painted, and powered by a thumping 5.9-liter V-12 that sends 550 hp to an eight-speed automatic, this stunner will tear to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. It’s big, but the low roof limits headroom in back. So it’s not a limousine—take something else to the Oscars. It doesn’t matter; every trip in the Rapide is a red-carpet event.

While the Rapide has been well-liked, it may not get renewed after this single first generation. Aston has plans to offer a crossover vehicle as well as a new Lagonda super-sedan, and the two models could indirectly replace the Rapide in the process. It’s likely that the Rapide will feature an electrified or heavily modified powertrain in the coming years.

Now Even Less Subtle Reengineered for the 2014 model year, the Aston Martin Rapide S churns out some 80 hp more than the car it replaces: the Rapide. Under the hood lies a revised 5.9-liter V12 engine good for 550 hp and 457 pound-feet of torque. Changes are vast. There’s a new block, new dual variable-valve timing heads with new cams and machined combustion chambers. Bigger throttle bodies and a more efficient intake manifold combine with a higher-volume fuel pump to increase the combustibles on tap. Altogether, the engine shed 22 pounds.

The Rapide S does a better imitation of a four-door coupe than others though, but it comes at a price. Unlike the Panamera, which eschews aesthetics for a massive rear seat, the Rapide S remains svelte and sleek, but at the expense of rear passenger space, especially upon entry through the narrow doors. With a taller driver or passenger up front, the rear seat is best reserved for children. In other words: think of the Rapide S as less of a sedan and more of a 2+2 with a second set of doors.
