Celebrating 100 years, Aston Martin proves its still got new tricks up its elegant sleeves. First, a new logo was unveiled. Then, the world was gifted a centenary edition of the beautiful Vanquish. And, finally, a Vanquish was dropped via helicopter into Dubai. No small feat. 

In more grounded—if that is possible with James Bond's favorite car company—news, Aston has announced the comprehensive refresh for the four-door Rapide. Now known as the Rapide S, the luxury sedan has received a healthy power upgrade that brings total horsepower up to 550. Although the exterior styling has little change, keen observers will notice a new front grille and rear spoiler.

Think of it as the perfect car for 007 to settle down with.
