Rapide is a brilliant move of Aston Martin and now there is a Race car version of it. It features some saving of weight by moving the interior trim, also a re-tuned suspension system and slick tires for maximum grip.

The British journalists from Autocar have released a video of Aston Martin Rapide Race car called the Nurburgring.

The engine is 6.0 liter V12 with 477PS (350 kW) and 600Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque. It is mated to a 6-speed Touchtronic gearbox, which sends all that power through the rear wheels. The top speed is somewhere over 300 km/h barrier.

The big car has a real sport spirit, so it is great to look as well to drive.
