Apart from the increased engine power, the performance of the Aston Martin Rapide AMR has greatly improved thanks to the newly refined suspension with three bouncing modes that lower the gravity center 10mm less than the standard version. In addition, the car is equipped with ceramic-carbon brakes to improve the vehicle's deceleration performance.
Specifically, the car uses the 400mm disc at the front with 6-piston calipers and 360mm disc brakes at the rear, coupled with 4-piston brake clamps. The rim of the car is a 21-inch cast ring, slightly larger than the original version, which increases the cooling effect of the brakes.
