After previewing Aston Martin’s monstrous DB11 V12 AMR just last month, its now time to explore the automaker’s latest development, known as the Rapide AMR (Aston Martin Racing). When all is said and done, the luxury vehicle will be one of the most powerful four-doors on the road, capable of hitting a top speed of 205 mph, while flying from 0-60 in just 4.2 seconds from its beefy 6.0L V12 engine.
Other notable features include 21-inch wheels — a first for the high-end car manufacturer, carbon ceramic brakes, a 10mm riding height and an updated cooling system, doing well to distance itself from any other sedan cruising in its class.
The Aston Martin Rapide AMR will hit the scene in a trio of options, including the Standard model, which spotlights bold lime-hued accents, in addition to Silhouette, and Signature options, leaning on tonal motifs utilized by the brand’s in-house racing team. The all-new Aston Martin will make its debut later this year.
