Aston Martin’s 2013 Geneva Motor Show lineup is headlined by this, the new Rapide S super sedan. The most powerful four-door Aston ever, and the most beautiful four-door car in the world – according to the Company – comes with upgraded styling, new features, and a modified V12 engine.

Compared to the standard Rapide, which boasts 477 horsepower and 600Nm of torque, the Rapide S offers you 558 horsepower and 620Nm. As a result it is 0.3 seconds faster to 60mph (4.9 seconds) and can reach 190 mph. Not that it matters, but the new car is also slightly more efficient and cleaner, as Co2 emissions are but from 355 g/km to 332 g/km.

The Rapide S also features a new dynamic stability control (DSC) and a revised version of Aston’s Adaptive Damping System (ADS). They offer three distinct settings: ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’.

Visually, the Rapide S features a new grille, revised headlights, and a new rear deck profile. Joining this car in Geneva are Aston Martin Centenary Edition models celebrating the brand’s 100th anniversary, and the Q by Aston Martin bespoke collection.
