Aston Martin DB11 AMR: Turning the V-12 up to 11

Utilizing the same 5.2-liter V12 as the standard DB11, the AMR variant adds 30 more horsepower bringing the total output up to 630 hp while torque remains strong at almost 500 lb-ft. Replacing the existing DB11 V12 - despite that only being launched in 2016 - and throwing 30 more horsepower into the mix, it gives the range a new, more potent flagship.

All of the standard DB11 brightwork now gets a monochrome treatment, including the dark headlight surrounds, smoked tail lamps and darkened front grille and tailpipes.

The DB11 AMR is distinguished by exposed carbon fiber and gloss black detailing. This is the third product under the AMR (Aston Martin Racing) banner, after the previous-generation Vantage AMR and the very limited edition V12 Vantage AMR Pro.

Aesthetic changes for the DB11 AMR are subtle but worthwhile.

Inside you'll find the monotone theme continuing with dark leather and alcantara upholstery offset by a lime central stripe and a sports steering wheel - a carbon fibre wheel and paddle set can also be optioned. The jump in horsepower translates to immediate performance gains as the dash from 0 to 62 miles per hour is over in just 3.7 seconds - an improvement of two tenths. That's still an eight-speed automatic with electronic shift-by-wire, paired with a limited-slip differential and featuring launch control.

Aston Martin is dropping its flagship DB11 V12 in favour of a more powerful race-inspired version of the vehicle, the new DB11 AMR grand tourer. The AMR's Sport driving mode features recalibrated gearshifts for the eight-speed automatic gearbox and a slightly louder exhaust note, while Aston claims that the vehicle strikes "the ideal balance between excitement and refinement" thanks to its reworked suspension.

The chassis development team, led by chief engineer Matt Becker, has provided the AMR variant with the more agile suspension and geometry set-up of the younger V8 model. A Rapide AMR is up next we are told.

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 limited-edition model is further enhanced with Dark Knight and lime accents, Satin Dark Chrome switchgear, and Satin Carbon-Fiber trim.

In the U.S., the 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR will be priced from $241,000, and deliveries are expected to begin in Q2 2018. The base price for the USA market is $241,000 plus delivery fees and the first cars are expected to reach American showrooms this coming summer.
