Aston Martin DB11 AMR, a new kind of sexy
Aston Martin has just shown a new member of its DB11 family, the new Aston Martin DB11 AMR which was launched at the opening of the new Nürburgring-based AMR Performance Centre.
Replacing the outgoing V12-engined DB11 as the new flagship of the DB11 range, the Aston Martin DB11 AMR boasts greater power, increased performance, enhanced driving dynamics and a more characterful exhaust note, together with a suite of exterior and interior enhancements. Together they create a DB11 that offers a more vivid driving experience, yet preserves the maturity and effortless continent-crushing GT performance for which the original V12-engined DB11 is rightly renowned.
AMR – inspired by Aston Martin Racing’s successful endurance programme – pushes the envelope of performance for each model in Aston Martin’s range. Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 2017, the performance derivative has already delivered the previous-generation Vantage AMR and AMR Pro, with the highly-anticipated Rapide AMR forthcoming.
At the heart of the DB11 AMR is Aston Martin’s twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12. Now developing 630bhp, this gives the DB11 AMR an additional 30bhp compared with the outgoing DB11 V12, and 127bhp more than the V8-engined DB11.
Torque remains unchanged at 700Nm. A 0-62mph time of 3.7sec is an improvement of 0.2sec over the outgoing model while a top speed of 208mph makes the Aston Martin DB11 AMR one of the world’s swiftest GT cars and the fastest model in Aston Martin’s current series production range.
