However you look at it, the Rapide S is a uniquely compelling machine with enduring appeal. Mating the thrill of a responsive and powerful V12 engine with the refinement of an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission, the Rapide S offers a very special blend of performance, one that combines searing pace and a 203 mph top speed with agile handling, supple ride and a luxurious, hand-crafted cockpit tailored for four adults. Elegance and exclusivity are also key ingredients in the singular and inimitable Rapide S recipe. Crisp, clean lines and a purity of proportion, combined with imposing scale and a sleek stance ensure tremendous presence. Generous haunches and flawless surfacing allow light to flow along its flanks, with iconic design signatures such as the side strakes and a bold grille.
