Aston Martin is quickly becoming the latest favourite of Bollywood celebrities. After Ranveer Singh, Hrithik Roshan has also picked up an Aston Martin Rapide S in India. He was recently seen with the new car with his kids. Only the Rapide S is officially available in the Indian market and it is priced at Rs. 3.9 crores, ex-showroom, Delhi.
Hrithik has gone for a silver coloured Rapide with dark interiors. The exotic 4-door British sports car is known for its spacious interiors and practicality. The Rapide is the best-selling Aston Martin in India and is quite popular among enthusiasts. The car is powered by a 6.0-litre AM29 V12 petrol engine that churns a maximum power of 552 Bhp and 620 Nm. The engine gets paired with a ZF-sourced 8-speed automatic transmission. The current generation Rapide S is the most powerful Rapide ever built. The saloon can do 0-100 kph in just 4.2 seconds and can reach a top speed of scintillating 327 kph.
This is the first time Hrithik has been spotted with the new car. Aston Martin offers a range of customisation options for the Rapide S that includes everything from the shade of the leather to the type of stitching pattern. The optional extras also include a rear seat entertainment system with a 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system.
The Rapide S gets a smooth ride quality with suspension duties handled by independent double wishbones at the front and rear. There is an Active Damping System too. Braking is taken care of by dual cast disc brakes on all four wheels. Features like 3-stage Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), ABS, Brake Assist, Torque Control, EBD and airbags are a few of the things that are offered as standard with the four-door sports car.
