Description

A ‘one of one’. We are delighted to offer this superb 2018 Aston Martin Rapide S, the only right-hand drive example to have been build in this distinguished colour combination of Arden Green over Sahara Tan hides.

The Rapide S, launched in 2013, was the first major update of the Rapide, which was first delivered in 2009 and recognised as the world’s most beautiful four door sports car, providing space for up to four adults with the engaging driving experience synonymous with all Aston Martins.

The Rapide S utilised the latest Gen 4 VH chassis architecture along with a useful increase in power. Styling updates of the Rapide S included the larger front grille, a front splitter and more pronounced lip on the boot spoiler.

For 2015 model year, the Rapide S received a further upgrade in the form of the 8-speed ZF gearbox and AM29 engine specification. These two modifications provided more power (552 bhp) and torque (465 lb ft) but incredibly less emissions and better fuel economy due to the new Bosch engine management system. Quoted top speed rose to 203 mph and the 0-60 mph acceleration times dropped to just 4.2 seconds.

In total, just 857 Rapide S were built-in right-hand drive, over the 5-year period before production of the Rapide S finally ceased in 2018 and it is one of those very ‘last of the line’ examples we are now delighted to offer, the only one to have been built in this colour combination and configuration.

Initially used a dealer demonstrator for a leading UK main agent, who were not reserved in ticking all of the options boxes, before first being registered in April 2018. Acquired by a discerning long-standing client of our business in October of 2019, who has used the car on limited occasions, keeping the car to virtually as new standards. Annual servicing has been carried out by Aston Martin main agents, including its last service at AM Works in April of this year.

The list of optional extras included in this car is certainly lengthy and available in the build record, on request, but notable items include; Performance Pack, AM premium audio, Black textured Tailpipe finishers, Exterior Shadow Pack, Full length Satin Cuprum Carbon fascia trim, Iridium Interior Trim Pack, Ventilated Seats (front and rear), AM wings headrest embroidery, Diamond style Perforated leather seats inserts, Clear rear lamps, and 20” Directional 10-spoke Graphite diamond turned wheels.

Representing the very end of a highly successful, 1st generation Gaydon, production era, this classically specified example is a compelling opportunity for enthusiasts and collectors of the marque, offering excellent value for money, considering the original RRP of over £165,000 and the performance available.

Supplied with Owner’s Manual, all keys and a custom fit, bespoke car cover.
