RapideS - The World's Most Beautiful 4-Door Sports Car


Timeless as Ever

Designing a more luxurious and more refined Rapide would have been a phenomenal achievement. Engineering a more powerful Rapide would have seen us take our industry leading technology to new heights. But we didn't settle on one, we did something incredible, we did both!

The best Rapide yet.


Elegant in Design

The Rapide S design echoes of the classic 'DB' model line but updated with contemporary elegance and a purity of form. Our designers pushed to produce a car that was as close to a sporting coupe as any four-door previously released, and the engineers delivered. We believe our designers designed the most elegant four-door ever.

An Assertive New Look

How to improve the design of the world's most beautiful 4-door sports car? Our world-leading design team created unique new styling. Two examples; a new rear deck profile enhances aerodynamics, a new full-face aluminium grille honed as a single piece by hand creates a striking front profile.

Exquisite Details

The 'Golden Ratio' defines the form and luxury defines the details. A new exterior pack adds carbon fiber to six surfaces, including the center section of the new front splitter, all formed and fitted by hand. A jewel-like side strake, machined from aluminium, sculpts the side of the car, whilst each bonnet louvre is cast individually from high density zinc. Rapide S takes exquisite exterior detailing to new heights of finesse.

Every Inch a Sports Car

Agile, balanced, controlled. A near 48:52 front/rear weight distribution means that Rapide S is unique, a true sports car with four-doors.

We took our renowned VH architecture and made Rapide S even more agile than our previous model. Weighing just 1990kg Rapide S is a four-door car with world-class dynamics. A four-door that's every inch a sports car.

Honed for Performance

Designed for grace and poise, Rapide S is also designed for dynamic performance. With a new bonnet structure and seven new body panels the all new Gen 4 AM11 engine sits 20mm lower in the chassis than the previous model. An aerodynamic profile, enhanced by the new rear 'flip', smoothes exterior airflow to improve efficiency and performance. Comfortable as a luxurious GT or nimble as a sports car, you instantly realize that Rapide S is designed to be driven.

The Power Behind the Luxury

Rapide S introduces the all-new Rapide Gen 4 AM11 engine. The most technologically advanced, most powerful Rapide engine we've ever built. Incredible figures tell the story; a sprint time of only 4.9 secs, 457 lb ft of torque and potent power of 550hp - an increase of more than 17% over our previous model.

Rapide S delivers phenomenal performance, all of the time.

Supremely Refined & Sumptuously Clothed

Driven by one but enjoyed by four. Rapide S has space for four adults to be transported in a luxurious environment with the highest levels of refinement. New exterior styling is matched by interior materials worked by hand to achieve a finish never seen before on a four-door sports car. Specifically designed materials and the largest range of colors, trims and options we've ever offered. Rapide S is exquisitely finished and exquisitely personal.

Sensory Indulgence

Rapide S uses more leather than any other Aston Martin in history. Thousands of unique color combinations and a wide range of finishes make each Rapide S bespoke to its owner. Our world-leading design team created a new interior finish unique to Rapide S. This distinctive new perforated duotone black and read leather features a pure black top surface and a subtle red undertone. Every inch of DB9's form is designed for elegance and balance. The simple beauty of nature guides the design of DB9, with the 'golden ratio' setting all proportions. The result is a profile where every line, dimension and proportion works in harmony. Combine this with the near perfect weight distribution, provided by a lower engine placement, and you have a DB9 balanced on sight and in experience.
