In May 2010, Aston Martin opened a new chapter in the history of the company with its Aston Martin Rapide. The car's life began with introduction of the concept car at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show. After the project was approved by the new shareholders of Aston Martin in mid-2007, the skillful designers and engineers made their best to put the project into life. Two years later, in 2009, the production version debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Rapide is equipped with Touchtronic 2 six-speed transmission with electronic shift-by-wire control system. Being a sports car, the Rapide is engineered with the minimal body weight. The light curb weight (4,319 lb) is achieved due to the Aston Martin’s V/H platform made of bonded aluminum. The aerodynamic body is covered with nine coats of paint to ensure durable finish. The four-door sports car is employed with single bi-xenon headlamps with integrated LED side lights, LED rear lamps, direction indicators, and side repeaters. 20” Bridgestone Potenza wheels are included into the standard package of the Aston Martin Rapide accessories. It is the first Aston Martin vehicle to feature dual cast floating brake discs that combine aluminum and iron parts, providing maximum durability and rigidity as well as light weight. Braking efficiency is increased by mono-block design applied to front and rear brake calipers.
