Serving North Olmsted, Strongsville, and Cleveland, OH

Ultra-luxury sports cars are coveted by discriminating drivers who have the means to afford the best. The Aston Martin line of super coupes and sedans are world famous for their premium luxury, performance and style. The Rapid S is a stunning four-door, four-passenger saloon that offers blistering speed, adaptive suspension and unsurpassed elegance. The only difference between the 2016 and 2017 models is the infotainment system.

Infotainment Technology

All new for 2017 is the Ami III Infotainment System, which is the control center for the Rapide S. The center-console system integrates status, control and audio technologies into a seamless system that is immediately intuitive. You get fingertip control of the latest satellite navigation system coupled to Bluetooth connectivity. Receive immediate information regarding power and torque distribution on a high-res 6.5-inch screen. The system also incorporates Apple iPhone capability.

Power and Performance

The 2016 and 2017 models share the same powerplant – a 6.0-liter V-12 that delivers 552 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque routed through a silky smooth ZF eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Zero to 60 mph takes a scant 4.2 seconds. The three-stage Active Damping System allows drivers to select the amount of performance or comfort they desire.

Cargo and Interior

The rear seats in the Rapide S are amazingly comfortable for two passengers. But when the back seats are unoccupied, you can press a button to engage the power-folding feature and reveal a generous cargo area. By the way, the seats boast quilted-leather upholstery and provide near-race-car bolstering for support and comfort.
