Aston Martin Rapide Video Series: True Power Should Be Shared (Part 1)

Aston Martin has released the first installment of a series o new films designed to showcase the marque’s four-door Rapide.

The series is shot in Lisbon, Portugal, where it follows a group of agents as they attempt to deliver a precious object, time, to a mystery figure. The ethos of the film is said to be based on one of life’s quandaries: the more success you had, the less time you had to share it with the people who mattered.

Film Director, Donnie Masters from Serious Pictures said; “We wanted to deliver a subtle but clever piece of branded entertainment. Something that mirrors the thrill of the drive. Intelligent, dramatic yet very exciting. It’s an action-packed Aston Martin story in three parts, designed to entertain our audience. We’re not hard selling, we’re showcasing. After all it is the thinking man’s (and woman’s) performance car.”

The Rapide is powered by a 470bhp 6.0-litre V12 engine with 443 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to rear wheels through a six-speed Touchtronic 2 gearbox taking it from 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds. Top speed is 188mph and UK prices start at £139,950.
