Aston Martin Rapide S: Most Improved Supercar

After a point, power doesn’t really matter. It’s a big thing to get 75bhp when you are used to 50. Massive is what you’d say when your 100bhp car makes 160. However, after 400, you are barely using the car’s prowess on a public road. Even on a short track, you can just extract a few tenths of a second with a 450bhp engine over a 400bhp.

The Rapide was never short of power, with 470 horses under its long, V12-enhanced 6.0-litre worth of a hood. With the Rapide S update, power is now up to 550bhp. In the real world, that’s no big deal. There’s nothing you can do with 550bhp that you couldn’t with 470.
