A special sports car made its way to Dubai this month: the Aston Martin Rapide S. The iconic brand has dubbed the Rapide S the ‘World’s most beautiful four-door sports car’, which many would agree to be true, partial as that opinion may be. The model also made headlines in Geneva this year. It is a tiny and timid step toward bigger changes in the Aston Martin lineup.
Aston Martin Dubai launches ‘World’s most beautiful four-door sports car’ – the Rapide S
The car was unveiled to the region at the company’s downtown Dubai showroom. The Aston Martin Rapide S was officially introduced by general manager of Aston Martin UAE, Tim Trenker, who shared the following sentiments about the sports car: “We are delighted to announce the launch of the Rapide S in the UAE. With its unique positioning and striking appeal, it certainly stands out as the most stylish four-door sports car in the market today. The UAE stands out as a unique market for luxury car brands with its dynamic customer base. With the amount of personalization on offer, the Rapide S can be tailor made to suit any individual’s needs.”

A red cockpit spells upscale sporty
The new Rapide S will be slowly replacing existing Rapide models in all world markets and is available through specific Aston Martin dealerships. Overall, we love the emphasized grille, aerodynamics and splendid 20-inch wheels the S is perched upon. Will this beauty make it to our fleet of Aston Martin rentals? Perhaps!
