For those who feel that the current Aston Martin Rapide just is not luxurious enough for them, there is an alternative that may suite their needs called the Rapide Luxe Special Edition. Aston Martin has revealed a new version of their sexy sedan, the Rapide, adding on more luxurious appointments to please the most peculiar buyer.
The Rapide Luxe features new exclusive body colors, newly bright finished grill, 20-inch alloy wheels and a cabin laced with elegant tweaks that you would only expect in some of the most expensive luxury vehicles around. Some of these interior items include heated and cooled custom leather upholstery, Walnut wood trim, an exclusive rear entertainment system feed through a 1000 watt Bang & Olufsen audio system and a six-piece luggage set to match the seats.
The Rapide Luxe is powered by the same 6.0-liter V12 engine with 470 horsepower and 443 foot-pounds of torque as found in the regular Rapide model. Power is directed through a 6-speed Touchtronic 2 transmission allowing an acceleration time to 60mph from a standstill in 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 188mph.
Pricing for the Rapide Luxe Special Edition has not been announced yet.
