  • Aston Martin DB11 AMR

Deliveries in the United States start this summer.

Aston Martin has officially unveiled the new DB11 AMR at the opening of the AMR Performance Center at the Nürburgring.

The DB11 AMR joins the V8-powered base DB11 coupe and convertible in the range, and will split the difference between those cars and the upcoming DBS Superleggera super-GT.

Not only does that ensure the hottest DB11 now has 127bhp of breathing space compared with the entry-level AMG V8-powered auto, it also provides the DB11 AMR with muscle to worry its archrivals, including the 626bhp Bentley Continental GT W12 and 621bhp V12 Mercedes-AMG S65.

The DB11 AMR Signature Edition joins the Vantage AMR and AMR Pro.

Still rocking a 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12, the AMR benefits from an additional 30 horsepower - new total: 630 - as well as reprogrammed shift mapping for its eight-speed automatic; and a slightly louder exhaust system. The DB11 AMR reaches 62mph in 3.7 seconds, a.02 second improvement over the outgoing model, with a top speed of 208 miles per hour.

Visually, the special edition DB11 sports a monochrome treatment all over with a dark front grille, dark headlight surrounds, and carbon-fiber hood blades.

Woods to play British Open at Carnoustie
The victor receives $1,890,000, which is more than Arnold Palmer made in the 734 tournaments he played in his career. You know, Tiger and Phil are still two of the biggest names in our sport, so they deserve to be talked about.

"By applying a suite of carefully considered performance and styling enhancements the DB11 AMR is both faster-208 mph!-and more precise".

Visually, the AMR and V-12 versions of the DB11 might be hard to tell apart from a distance, but as you get closer you'll notice a number of revisions, starting with "a coordinated palette of exposed carbon fibre and gloss black detailing", both inside and out. A Rapide AMR is up next we are told. Moving further back, we can see a gloss black roof, carbon fiber mirror caps and 20-inch forged alloy wheels with a dark finish.

Priced at £174,995, the AMR will reach customers in Q2 of 2018, with the Stirling Green and Lime livery cars asking a little more at £201,995.

The suspension was retuned to give the driver a better sense of connection to the road, says Aston, but without making it too aggressive for a grand tourer.

Inside, the black-and-carbon-fibre theme is carried on, with monotone leather and Alcantara upholstery offset by other weave details and the central lime stripe on the seats. This variant gets more carbonfibre detailing and an interior trimmed with Dark Knight leather and contrasting lime details.

As you'd expect, the DB11 AMR is more than just an appearance package.
