Rapide is the name of the new concept of the Aston Martin car being launched most probably in September of this year at Frankfurt Auto Show.
Compared with the concept that was presented at the Detroit Auto Show in 2006, the current model does not differ greatly, the most visible changes is the mirrors, back bar and double-row air vents on front spoiler.

Quick tests done on the Arctic Circle have shown that due to the 500 HP, car will reach 100 km in 4.5 seconds with a maximum speed of 290 km / h. Equipped with a gearbox 6 steps named Touchtronic, gearbox specific for Aston Martin, the car will reach new performance when will be released.
