All set for its formal reveal at the Geneva Auto Show in March, here's a sneak peek at the gorgeous new 2014 Aston Martin Rapide S. Automobile fans are of course aware that the existing Rapide was, as its name suggests, one of the zippiest four-door sportscars around, but the 2014 S version ups the ante by eking out 550 hp - that's 80 more that its predecessor.

The 2014 Aston Martin Rapide S will go from zero to sixty in a hair-whipping 4.7 seconds, maxing out at a top speed of 190mph. Powered by the same 6.0L V12 engine, design tweaks are subtle, with the car sitting 19mm lower and a marginally larger single grille and decklid rounding off the changes. The interior boasts all of the plush trappings expected of its pedigree, with contrast maroon stitching on the finest calf.
