Aston Martin has introduced the new DB11 AMR. Replacing the outgoing V12-engined DB11 as the new flagship of the DB11 range, the DB11 AMR boasts greater power, increased performance and enhanced driving dynamics, together with a suite of exterior and interior enhancements.
At the heart of the DB11 AMR is Aston Martin’s twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12. Now developing 630bhp, this gives the DB11 AMR an additional 30bhp compared with the outgoing DB11 V12, and 127bhp more than the V8-engined DB11. Torque remains unchanged at 700Nm. A 0-62mph time of 3.7sec is an improvement of 0.2sec over the outgoing model while a top speed of 208mph makes the DB11 AMR one of the world’s swiftest GT cars and the fastest model in Aston Martin’s current series production range.
Visually the DB11 AMR is distinguished by a co-ordinated palette of exposed carbon fibre and gloss black detailing. On the outside all brightwork has been given a monochrome treatment: dark headlight surrounds and smoked tail lamps complimented by dark front grille and tailpipes; gloss black roof, roof strake plus side sills and splitter, and exposed weave carbon fibre hood blades and side strakes. The dark theme continues inside, with monotone leather and alcantara upholstery and a contrasting central lime stripe, while DB11 AMR is treated to a leather sports steering wheel as standard.
The DB11 AMR is available in three Designer Specifications, plus an exclusive AMR Signature Edition, which carries a striking Stirling Green and lime livery. Limited to 100 units worldwide, the AMR Signature Edition is priced at £201,995 ($AU362,350).
Further race-inspired styling is available. These include a carbon-fibre engine cover, exhaust tips and a deployable spoiler, a new carbon-fibre sports steering wheel and paddle-shifts.
The Aston Martin DB11 AMR is available from £174,995 ($AU313,915) in the UK, $241,000 in the US and €218,595 in Germany, with first customer deliveries in Q2 2018.
