Aston Martin Rapide Luxe

rapide luxe at Aston Martin Rapide Luxe

Aston Martin released a new edition of the Rapide called simply Rapide Luxe, and that gives a clue about what this model is all about. The Luxe is a very exclusive derivative of the luxury four-door coupe which offers more functional features, greater choice of paint and leather finishes, and bespoke accessories. In other words, it is a fully loaded version of the Rapide. Aston has not revealed yet how much extra you have to pay for the Luxe. For that you should contact your dealer because that depends on how you spec up the car.

Complete list of features after the pictures…
