Aston Martin DB11 AMR announced as new flagship

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.

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. It produces 630 horsepower of the United Kingdom variety (639 metric HP) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. Inside, the dark leatherr and alcantara is broken by a bold central lime stripe. According to Aston, the new exhaust is more vocal than the base auto and shows more character when you're in sport mode.

The 5.2-liter V12 gets a 30-hp bump in the AMR over the standard issue DB11. First, they teased us with an image of a new DBS Superleggera which will be their flagship model of the brand, to their new Vantage hitting the racetracks, a last hurrah to the old Vantage V12 with the V600, the announcement of a Luxury SUV from Lagonda and even plans for an Aston Martin-badged submarine. But, if you're not down with AMR, a quick backgrounder for you: Early a year ago, Aston launched the Vantage AMR Pro and the Rapide AMR, the first salvos in a full broadside of AMR models that will encompass the entire range.




With more power, the Aston Martin DB11 gets a new flagship model from the AMR division which is faster and quicker than the standard V12.

Aston Martin's engineers also refined the DB11 AMR's chassis to give it a greater sense of connection without harming the ride. These include a carbon-fibre engine cover, exhaust tips and a deployable spoiler that add further detail to the model's exterior, while a new carbon-fibre sports steering wheel and paddeshifts bring that same AMR ethos within the cabin.

Pricing for the 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR starts at $241,000. "By applying a suite of carefully considered performance and styling enhancements, the DB11 AMR is both faster and more precise". Also offered is a limited-edition model sporting AMR's signature Sterling Green and lime livery. For those heading off for weekend, expertly tailored luggage sets are available to match the car's specification. Featuring even more extensive carbon fibre detailing on the exterior, Dark Knight leather with Lime detailing, Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fibre trim, only 100 examples will be sold worldwide, priced at £26,000 more than the standard auto. Just 100 are due to be made.
