Kahn Aston Martin Rapide Released

Deciding to tune a vehicle like the Aston Martin Rapide, which has been named “the most elegant four-door sports car in the world” is no easy task, but this didn’t stop British aftermarket developer Kahn from taking on the challenge to refine the Rapide.

The starting point was a Rapide finished in Onyx Black, a color that imposes respect. Kahn redefined the car’s connection to the road: it all started with a lowering suspension, with the Rapide also receiving a set of Kahn RSX-F wheels, which come in a 21-inch size, use a platinum silver finish and fit the original center caps. The wheels allow us to see the new black finish of the brake calipers.

As for the exterior details, Kahn choose a subtle approach, gifting the Rapide with a front mesh grille that uses a matte black finish, bonnet vents in billet, side vents grilles finished in matte black, as well as tinted windows.

The final touch is brought by a sports exhaust system that allows the V12 powerplant hidden under the long bonnet to express its feelings. You’ve probably noticed that the Kahn Aston Martin Rapide uses a Bond-inspired vanity plate and we have to tell you that this is sold separately. As for the girls in the Bond movies, you’ll have to bring them in yourself.
