The heart of the Rapide S is a cultured quad-cam 6.0-litre V12. Marrying sumptuous accessibility with supreme ultimate performance, it perfectly represents the dual personality of Rapide S. Producing a scintillating 552 bhp (560 PS), and 630 Nm (465 lb ft) the V12 is eminently accessible and capable of soaring performance.


Rapide S has been transformed by the highly advanced eight-speed Touchtronic III automatic gearbox. Like the car, Touchtronic III has a comprehensive skill set – capable of shifting gears in as quick as 130 milliseconds for ultimate response, but simultaneously improving refinement and economy. Eight ratios ensures that the 6.0-litre V12’s innate qualities are fully realised. Shorter lower ratios improve acceleration while the relaxed gait of ratios 7 and 8 reduce revs for near-silent cruising capability.


The Rapide S shares the same advanced bonded aluminium construction and potent powertrain as our latest generation GT and Super GT models. It provides the ideal platform on which to create the most sporting four-seater in our history with a lower centre-of gravity and increased structural rigidity.


It is not just the outright pace of the Rapide S that makes it so impressive, but the way it is deployed. Developed to fully exploit and perfectly complement the tremendous reserves of accessible performance, the Rapide S advanced suspension and braking systems are paragons of control, power and precision.


Positioning the 6.0-litre V12 engine behind the centreline of the front wheels and mounting the eight-speed Touchtronic III transaxle at the rear, concentrates the major masses within the wheelbase of Rapide S and achieves a near-perfect weight distribution. This has the twin benefits of optimising agility and delivering consistent, confidence-inspiring handling on all roads and in all weathers.
