The new Aston Martin Rapide S may not appear to have changed a great deal, but in keeping with Aston’s incremental approach to updating its line-up, the new grille is the most obvious change outside. Under the bonnet, its 6.0-litre V12 now gets 80bhp more power and it’s mounted 19mm lower for improved handling and better pedestrian impact protection. Is it enough to compete with the Porsche Panamera, Mercedes S-Class and BMW Gran Coupe?
