The interior of the Shadow Edition continues Aston Martin’s tradition of luxurious appointment. The cabin is lavished in swathes of supple leather, available in Dark Knight and Sahara Tan finishes, echoing the penumbra exterior.
Natural woods and other hand-crafted materials envelop substantial functionality. A quartet of swan-wing doors open to reveal four impressively adjustable seats, meaning that Shadow Edition can carry four adults in complete comfort.
Slip into the driving seat and you will instantly notice that every aspect of the interior has been crafted around the driving experience. From the tactile materials to the intuitive controls encapsulated in the stunning waterfall sweep of the centre stack, drivers are immersed in an unparalleled driving experience.
The Rapide S Shadow Edition continues the assertive design language of Rapide S. New Ultramarine Black and Solent Green finishes accentuate the supremely confident poise of Rapide S, from the bold front arcs to the elongated side gills.
This new reimagining retains the archetypal front grille of Rapide S, but combined with Shadow Edition’s dusky new exterior and low stature, creates an inimitable and imposing presence.
To the rear, the broad upwards sweep of the tailgate shapes a dynamic silhouette, while improving airflow to stabilise the uprated power of the V12 engine.
Beneath the Shadow Edition’s stunning exterior sits an aerodynamic diffuser integrated into the rear valance, providing added stability while realising the sporting vision of the Rapide range.
At the heart of the Rapide S Shadow Edition is a new AMi III infotainment system, designed into a stunning new fascia. This entertainment control centre seamlessly integrates audio, hands-free telephony and status displays, placing everything at fingertip control through a high resolution 6.5-inch touchscreen.
Controlling everything from the satellite navigation system and Bluetooth® connectivity to displaying real time power and torque info, the AMi III interface pairs with both Android and iOS smartphones, giving you access to hands-free functions like reading out your incoming text messages as you drive.
Elegant and easy to operate, the AMi III’s cutting edge technology enhances the environment and experience of the Rapide S Shadow Edition.
