Aston Martin has introduced the new 2016 Aston Martin Rapide in India, in collaboration with Performance Cars (a division of Infinity Cars Pvt. Ltd), one of India’s eminent luxury car dealerships.
The key features of the car include a new generation 6.0 litre AM29 V12 engine, which propels the Rapide from 0-100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds. It can reach the top speed of 306 km/h. Another important addition is the Aston Martin AMI III Infotainment system that helps the driver with audio, navigation, telephony and vehicle information. It is a super powerful, hand crafted, V-12 four door luxury sports car. Aston Martin Rapide is priced at Rs 3.29 crores (ex showroom Thane).
Speaking about the launch, Lalit Choudary, Managing Director, Infinity Cars, said, “The 2016 Rapide is the ultimate four-door luxury sports car for India with its revolutionary new engine, luxuriously redesigned interiors and fantastic ground clearance for hassle-free driving. The earlier Aston Martin Rapide has already garnered exceptional appreciation and following amongst Indian enthusiasts, making it the highest selling four door sports car in the country accounting for over 50% of the Aston Martin cars sold in India.”
“This model offers unprecedented power and comfort at an extremely attractive price. India has been a market of strategic importance for Aston Martin and we are very delighted to launch the new Rapide in the country. Aston Martin has been very responsive to the demands of the Indian consumers and have therefore launched the new Rapide especially for India,” commented Neil Slade, General Manager, AMMENA for Aston Martin.
A British car brand that’s revered for its auto innovations, Aston Martin is all set to offer speed, luxury and thrill to its Indian patrons.
