[VIDEO] Aston Martin Rapide S – technical details explained

Aston Martin has released a new video with the Rapide S, where the vehicle’s technical details are being explained by the director of Product Development, Ian Minards.

After it was officially unveiled a few months ago, and then brought to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the Aston Martin Rapide S is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker releasing a new video with the model. The footage posted below is showing the British based automaker’s director of Product Development, Ian Minards, explaining the technical details on the powerful four-door coupe.

As a quick reminder, the brand new Aston Martin Rapide S is being powered by a 5.9 liter V12 engine which is producing a total output of 558 HP (410 kW), and it has a peak torque of 620 Nm (457 lb-ft), 81 HP (59 kW) and 20 Nm of torque more than the standard version. The Rapide S can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.9 seconds, 0.3 seconds faster than the standard variant, before reaching a top speed of 305.7 km/h (190 mph). Fuel consumption stands at 14.1 L / 100 km (19.9 mpg UK / 16.5 mpg US) and the model is emitting 332 g/km of CO2.
