Aston Martin Rapide E – All-electric 604HP Supercar

I’m in love with this car … so WANT!

No more teasing — Aston Martin has finally revealed its first all-electric car. The Rapide E swaps out a V12 engine for an 800V, 65 kWh battery system and twin rear motors with 604 hp and 700 pound-feet of torque. There will only be 155 units produced, “with prices available on application” and along with Williams, the carmaker has packed an aging frame with plenty of reasons to try this one out.

The battery pack is sitting directly in place of the usual fuel engine, and can charge at a rate of up to 300 range-miles per hour when connected to an outlet that can deliver 100kW or higher. According to Aston Martin, this performance vehicle is built to deliver in a “repeatable” way and not just under narrow windows of battery charge or climate conditions.

Besides the shot at Tesla’s Ludicrous Mode, it comes with a 155 MPH top speed and 0 – 60 time that’s under four seconds (0 – 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds). Its electric powertrain can deliver three driving modes: GT, Sport and Sport+, with driving feel and limited-slip differential tuned to match the handling characteristics of a petrol-powered Rapide AMR.
