Is the new Aston Martin Rapide S any more flexible to drive?

Torque is up slightly, to 457 lb.-ft. at 5,000 rpm. More importantly, there’s 29 lb.-ft. more pulling power straight from idle and 36 lb.-ft. more torque at 2,500 rpm. This will make the luxury four-door much easier to drive, further aided by the touch-button Touchtronic 2 six-speed auto.
