Aston Martin boss Andy Palmer suggested the new DB11 is more sports focused than its predecessor.

Contrary to previous assumptions that Aston Martin will name its next flagship sporting GT the Vanquish, the British marque has since confirmed that it will carry the DBS Superleggera nomenclature instead, harking back to the DB4 and DB5 Superleggera that donned the name of their Italian coachbuilder, Carrozzeria Superleggera. The grand tourer's 0-100km/h sprint time has also been reduced to 3.7 seconds from 3.9 seconds.

Aston Martin's DB11 has gone over to the dark side with a new performance flagship derivative, breaking cover at the official opening last week of the new Nurburgring-based AMR Performance Centre.

Aston Martin has dialled-up James Bond's preffered ride. The DB11 V12 AMR Edition is limited to 100 units and will set you back approximately $270,000 United States dollars. A new shift calibration for the transmission and a slightly more vocal exhaust note ensures the DB11 AMR expresses its character more explicitly when Sport mode is engaged. Owners can hear the extra performance because the AMR also features a slightly louder exhaust. All the chrome seen on the standard auto has been replaced with monochrome trims along with smoked headlights and tail lights to make the DB11 look more sinister. More aggressive design theme continues inside, where there's a monochrome trim and Alcantara upholstery.

10 children taken from Fairfield home, dad charged with torture
Meanwhile, the children's mother, Ina Rogers, a 30-year-old Fairfield resident, has been booked on child neglect charges. All 10 children were initially taken into protective custody by Solano County Child Welfare Services.

Sporting credentials such as a flat-bottomed steering wheel, contrast colour brake callipers, dual exhausts and racing seats all feature in the vehicle. It'll come in Stirling Green with Lime pinstripes and exposed carbon fiber trim.

Buyers looking to dress up the body should check out the limited-edition AMR Signature Edition (above). The cabin will be done in Dark Knight leather with the same lime colour finishes.

Dark headlight surrounds and smoked tail-light lenses are complemented by a dark grille and tailpipes, a gloss black roof, side sills and splitter, in subtle contrast to the clear-lacquered carbon-fibre bonnet blades and side strakes. Aston only intends to build 100 of these special models.
