Rapide S will feature a 6.0 liter V12 dialed up to the 517 PS (380 kW / 510 bhp) and carbon-ceramic brakes and a tighter suspension tuning to handle the extra power.
According to British car magazine Autoexpress, Aston Martin has been testing a prototype of a Rapide S model.
The Rapide S will feature an up-tuned version of the 6.0 liter V12 dialed up to the 517 PS (380 kW / 510 bhp) mark, same as on the Aston Martin DBS model. The standard Rapide comes with 470 bhp (350 kW, 477 PS) and 600 Nm (443 ft-lb) of torque.
Autoexpress says its sources have confirmed that the prototype spied testing recently with a larger rear spoiler was a Rapide S.
A Rapide S will also get carbon-ceramic brakes and a tighter suspension tuning.
The expected price is around £200,000 ( €230,851), and the model will likely debut later in the year.
