The 0-60 mph time for the 2015 Rapide S drops from 4.7 seconds to just 4.2 seconds.

The British high-end marque has revealed the 2015 Rapide S will arrive with enhanced performance and improved fuel economy and emissions.

With the debut of the new Touchtronic III eight-speed automatic gearbox in the 2015 Rapide S, Aston Martin is improving every major area of the car's performance and fuel economy.

The 0-60 mph time for the 2015 Rapide S drops from 4.7 seconds to just 4.2 seconds.

Changes to gear and final drive ratios allow the car to be not only quicker but also more frugal, with reduced emissions too. The CO2 figure drops down to 300 g/km for Rapide S while economy is boosted to 14 mpg in the city and 22 mph on the highway.

The 2015 Aston Martin Rapide S also receives the latest Bosch Engine Management System which delivers more precise engine control and seamlessly communicates with the new gearbox.

For 2015, the Rapide S comes with uprated larger front brakes. It also benefits from a retuned brake booster and amended rear suspension bushes that are now 20% stiffer than before.

Outside, the car can now be painted in Diavalo Red, previously limited to the breath-taking V12 Zagato.

Inside, Rapide S gains the exciting option of a new Duotone leather seat finish in Sahara Tan and Vibrant Red, as well as a range of new headlining options that mix quilting with the finest leathers or Alcantara.

Director of Design Marek Reichman explained: "More bold and dynamic interior and exterior treatments are the perfect offering for customers of the latest models. It is, of course, possible to add more color to our cars while maintaining Aston Martin's reputation for elegance and beauty, and I'm very happy to see this enhanced and extended color palette offered to our loyal customers around the world."
