Aston Martin will showcase the durability of its four-door sportscar, the Rapide, by embarking on a tour of the northernmost state of the USA today.
American motoring scribe, Patrick Paternie, will bring the Rapide from Anchorage to Prudhoe Bay, right into the Arctic Circle, in a 1980km round trip.
Using the Dalton Highway, the Rapide will be subject to freezing temperatures and will test not only the robustness of its 6.0-litre V12 and six-speed ZF automatic, but also its stability control systems and its weatherproofing.
The trip will take three days and will showcase the versatility of the British marque – with Rapides being sent to as diverse climates as cold Alaska and boiling Dubai.
Julian Jenkins, Vice President and General Manager Aston Martin – The Americas – said, “Since its launch, the Rapide has been popular with customers looking for an exclusive sports car with a combination of exhilarating performance, handcrafted style, and added four-door practicality. The Rapide is the ideal car to make Aston Martin’s first exciting drive through Alaska in comfort, style and ease.”
