Aston Martin Rapide AMR revealed

Aston Martin Rapide AMR revealed

•    The Rapide AMR is a 595bhp super saloon from Gaydon.
•    It is the swansong for the current-gen Rapide.
•    The Rapide AMR remains true to the concept showcased last year.

Following in the wake of the DB11 AMR, Aston Martin has officially revealed the four-door Rapide AMR. The high-performance saloon from Gaydon gets a power boost, revised suspension and aero updates along with AMR styling.
Under the hood, the naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12 engine now produces 595bhp of raw power. This is an upgrade of over 50bhp from the standard Rapide S. Top speed is now 330kmph. The bump in power is due to enhanced airflow to the engine. This is done by fitting larger inlet manifolds as well as calibrating the engine and gearbox.

The Rapide AMR sits 10mm lower than the standard car. The performance sedan also gets adaptive dampers and retuned suspension for better dynamics. The massive 21-inch wheels are wrapped in special Michelin Super Sport tyres. Braking duties are taken care of by new carbon ceramic brakes measuring 400 at the front with six-piston calipers and 360mm at the rear with four-piston calipers.

Styling wise, the Rapide AMR remains true to the concept showcased last year. There is a massive blacked out meshed grille upfront similar to the Vantage AMR Pro race car. There are circular fog lamps on the bumpers akin to the Zagato models.

Upfront, there are aggressive lip splitters; and large diffusers at the back. The large vents on the bonnets add to the sporty appeal. The quad-exhaust system will ensure sonorous sound of the Rapide AMR. There are three design schemes to choose from - Standard, Silhouette and Signature. The Signature edition gets Stirling Green paint job with lime accents and stripe. On the inside, there is a carbon fibre centre console and Alcantara wrapped upholstery. The AMR logos can be seen all around the car.

The Rapide AMR will have a production run of just 210 units priced at 194,950 Pounds a piece. The AMR edition serves as a swansong for the Rapide. There are rumours of shelving the Rapide in favour of DBX SUV which will arrive in 2020.
