Ranveer Singh buys Aston Martin Rapide worth INR 4 crore – Takes Deepika Padukone out for a spin

The new Aston Martin Rapide is capable of acceleration from rest to ton in under 5 seconds.

The new Aston Martin Rapide four-door supercar was launched in India at INR 3.29 crores (ex-showroom, Thane) about a year ago. The exclusive British automobile is sold by Performance Cars (a unit of Infinity Cars), the official importer of Aston Martins in India.

Bollywood actor, Ranveer Singh is the latest buyer of this exclusive car in India. He has purchased this car recently, as a birthday gift to himself. Last night he got the delivery of his car, and the first thing he did was take bollywood actor and his girlfriend Deepika Padukone out for a spin.

Aston Martin Rapide is the company’s best selling model in India with 50% of its sales volume coming from it. The updated car is expected to retain the popularity. The new Rapide receives a revised front fascia with a larger grille and tweaked headlamps. Other changes include new exterior color options and interior trim options. The Rapide’s stunning design, well executed interiors, four-door practicality and good ground clearance makes it the most popular Aston in India. The updated version offers AM III infotainment system (audio, navigation, telephony and car controls).

The supercar is powered by a 6.0-litre AM29 V12 petrol engine which belts out a massive 510 bhp. The Rapide can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in a scant 4.6 seconds before hitting a top speed of 306 kmph. An 8-speed transmission with paddle shifters sends all that power to the rear wheels. The range-topping Rapide S puts out an outrageous 560 PS.
