During this years 24 hour race at the Nürburgring Aston Martin opened their AMR Performance Center directly next to the famous Nordschleife. Here they offer special services for the supercars like the One-77, the Vulcan or the forthcoming Valkyrie as well as showing their AMR model range. The latter was expanded by introducing the new DB11 AMR as top of the model line and successor to the DB11 V12, which was sold about 4,200 times since its introduction to the market in 2016.
Compared to the known DB11 V12, the AMR gets more power, more driving dynamics, a bettered exhaust sound as well as small modifications to bodywork and interior. Under its huge bonnet sits the V12 biturbo engine which has been presented together with the DB11. Now it delivers 630 PS, 30 more than before, but stays with the known 700 newtonmeters of torque. Combined with the standard eight-speed automatic the Coupé reaches 62 mph after 3.7 seconds, two tenth faster than before. Top speed now is 208 mph.
Led by chief engineer Matt Becker the chassis got a more sporty tuning for more driving dynamics without compromising the comfort. Next to that the DB11 AMR gets a faster shift calibration and a more vocal exhaust note in sport mode.
Next to the DB11 V12 the new DB11 AMR shows bare carbon and gloss black all around the bodywork. All bright work gets a dark finish, the rear lights show smoke grey glasses, while roof, roof strakes, sills and splitter are painted black. Hood blades and side strakes show bare carbon. Interior wears monotone leather and alcantara combined with lime stripes.
Next to the standard colors Aston Martin offers three Designer Specifications and the exclusive AMR Signature Edition. It is painted in ‘Stirling Green’ with stripes in AMR color ‘Lime’ as well as more carbon details. Inside the car gets leather upholstery in ‘Dark Knight’ with lime accents and dark chrome switchgear. This AMR Signature Edition is limited to 100 cars worldwide and is offered for 201,995 GBP. The normal DB11 AMR starts at 174,995 GBP. First deliveries will take place within the running second quarter of 2018.
