How to improve the design of the world’s most beautiful four-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.
Agile, balanced, controlled. A near perfect 48:52 front / rear weight distribution means 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 we also lowered the engine by nearly 20mm. Rapide S is a four-door car with world-class dynamics. A four-door car that’s every inch a sports car.
The 2015 Rapide S now includes the new generation AM29 V12 engine. The most technologically advanced, most powerful Rapide engine we’ve ever built. Incredible figures tell the story; a sprint time of only 4.2 secs, 630 Nm of torque and potent power of 552 bhp – an increase of more than 18% over the first generation Rapide. Rapide S delivers phenomenal performance, all of the time.
