Today Friday 11th May Aston Martin launched a new addition to the DB11 family. The DB11 AMR was showcased at the opening of their new Nürburgring-based AMR Performance Centre. Built on the reputation of the outgoing V12-engined DB11 the new DB11 V12 AMR (Aston Martin Racing) promises to deliver improvement in every aspect of the outgoing car.
AMR is essentially a tuner with the goal of making your car as individual as you like. As the second car that has been given the AMR treatment, it is giving some serious improvements. Using the standard 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 in the DB11 AMR have managed to increase the total output to 630 bhp. This, in turn, gives a 0-62 time of 3.7 and an incredible top speed of 208mph while retaining the GT style of the car.
The AMR DB11 comes with a noisier sound from the already impressive V12 thanks to the tweaked exhaust system. Other areas that have been giving the AMR treatment are the eight-speed ZF automatic gearbox which sees a more responsive gear change while, according to AMR, the suspension has also been modified by chief Engineer Matt Becker and his team which should give a “greater sense of connection without harming the supple ride.”
Aston Martin have made sure its DBS AMR customers stand out by giving the car a bespoke paint job and loads of carbon fibre bits around the car.
The interior of the car comes with vast Amounts of leather and Alcantara, embossed AMR logos plus contrasting lime stripes and stitching.
The posher AMR Signature Edition (above and below) has ‘Dark Knight’ leather patches, ‘Satin Dark Chrome’ switchgear and yet more carbon fibre both inside and out.
The Signature car is limited to just 100 units priced at £201,995, while the standard AMR Pro will set you back £174,995.
