“Mechanically, the Taraf retains the Rapide’s naturally aspirated 5.9-liter, 540-hp V12—a sonorous glory, with savage torque at mid-clock—and eight-speed rear transaxle. The presence and aurality of the powertrain has been retrenched beneath the Taraf’s deeper drifts of soundproofing, and you can only dig them out again with a very heavy foot.”
