This leaked image shows the clearest view yet of the interior of the Aston Rapide four-door.
The picture, which is likely to have come from a promotional brochure, gives a glimpse of the four individual bucket seats and leg room in the rear.
The front seats house screens for the entertainment system and there are controls in the back.
There is also a foldable bulkhead in the boot to improve practicality, and it allows a set of skis to be carried in the car. Load capacity is reasonable; the Rapide should be slightly larger than the DB9.
This picture shows a two-tone leather interior to match the paintwork.
Based on a long-wheelbase DB9 chassis and powered by a 480bhp 6.0-litre V12, the £140k Aston Martin Rapide should slot between the DB9 and DBS in the company’s range. It will have a six-speed ZF auto with Aston’s Touchtronic control.
Aston’s engineers have stretched the DB9’s wheelbase by 255mm, making the car five metres long, the benchmark for luxury saloons like the Mercedes S-class.
