These are the latest images showing the interior of the Aston Martin Rapide four-door coupe. The photos, which appear to come from a promotional brochure, show the four individual bucket seats and legroom in the rear.
The entertainment system is housed in the front seats and the controls are seen in the back. Features include a foldable bulkhead in the boot to improve practicality, allowing a set of skis to be carried in the car.
Load capacity is reasonable; the Rapide should be slightly larger than the DB9. The car has a two-tone leather interior to match the paintwork.
Based on a long-wheelbase DB9 chassis and powered by a 480bhp 6.0-litre V12, the £140k Aston Martin Rapide should position between the DB9 and DBS in the company's range.
It will have a six-speed ZF auto with Aston's Touchtronic control. DB9's wheelbase is stretched by 255mm, making the car five meters long, the benchmark for luxury saloons like the Mercedes S-class.
Despite the swooping roofline, the Aston Rapide is 63mm higher than a DB9, an increase that ensures the styling retains its balance, yet also offers practical rear head room.
The Rapide will be heavier than a DB9, tipping the scales at around 1940kg, a 130kg increase in kerb weight. The extra power should compensate for this, giving it a 0-60mph time of around 4.5sec and top speed of more than 180mph.
