If you'd previously considered an Aston Martin Rapide but were put off by the paltry level of specification, then it could be time to have another look as the brand has added a Luxe trim to the range.

It brings as standard a host of features that normally appear as options, including a six piece luggage set to complete the Aston Martin lifestyle experience. For that extra touch, the material is matched to the Rapide's leather seats.


It adds around £13,000 to the cost of a standard Rapide, and for that you also get a rear seat entertainment system, a special key that is made of glass and polished stainless steel and a couple of top-level colours - Concours Blue and Quantum Silver.

The engine remains the same 6.0-litre V12 as the 'normal' car, but the price goes up from £144,950 to £157,445. The Luxe trim is on sale now
