British luxury car maker Aston Martin will turn up at the 2013 New York Auto Show with a lineup of awesome cars including the new Rapide S, the Vanquish, and the latest DB9 Coupe and Volante. The highlight of their stand, however, is the Rapide S that makes its American debut at the show.
They will also show the V12 Vantage GT3 and V8 Vantage GT4 race cars, which are going to be very interesting for the motorsport fans, and to those who just appreciate a good-looking car in a cool racing livery.
The S version of the Rapide sports sedan is a steroid-infused version of the old normal model boasting a 550 horsepower version of the same old V12 engine. The torque is also up from 443lb.ft (600Nm) to 457lb.ft (620Nm), which means the 0 to 60mph drops from the 5.1 seconds of the current car to just 4.7 seconds. The top speed is 190 mph.
And as for the price, the new-look Rapide, with its wide grille and new bootlid spoiler, starts from $199,950 USD (CAD $210,500).
