Aston Martin has unveiled the new DB11 AMR, the new flagship model that brings a new dimension of race-inspired dynamism and performance to the DB11 family.

14 May 2018 | International News : U.K.


Aston Martin has brought a new dimension of race-inspired dynamism and performance to the DB11 family, with the introduction of the new DB11 AMR, launched at the opening of the new Nurburgring-based AMR Performance Centre.

The DB11 AMR replaces the DB11 V12 as the new flagship of the range
Replacing the outgoing V12-engined DB11 as the new flagship of the DB11 range, the 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.

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 0-100km/h time of 3.7 seconds is an improvement of 0.2 seconds over the outgoing model while a top speed of 335km/h makes the DB11 AMR one of the world's swiftest GT cars and the fastest model in Aston Martin's current series production range.

Striking the perfect balance between excitement and refinement, the handling of DB11 AMR has been refined by Aston Martin's skilled dynamics team, led by Chief Engineer Matt Becker. Their work has delivered a greater sense of connection without harming the supple ride. Similarly, 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.

Power from the engine has been bumped up by 30bhp to 630bhp
Visually, the DB11 AMR is distinguished by a co-ordinated palette of exposed carbon fibre and gloss black detailing that unites the exterior and interior treatment.

On the outside, all brightwork has been given a monochrome treatment - dark head light surrounds and smoked tail lamps complimented by dark front grille and tailpipes, while gloss black roof, roof strake plus side sills and splitter offering a subtle contrast with the exposed weave of the carbon fibre hood blades and side strakes.

The dark theme continues inside, with monotone leather and alcantara upholstery and a bold contrasting central lime stripe, while DB11 AMR is treated to a leather sports steering wheel as standard.

In addition to the extensive choice of standard colour and trim options, the DB11 AMR is available in three Designer Specifications, plus an exclusive AMR Signature Edition, which carries a striking Stirling Green and lime livery. With extensive carbon fibre detailing on the exterior, the inside is equally striking, with Dark Knight leather and Lime detailing, plus Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fibre trim. The AMR Singnature Edition is strictly limited to 100 units worldwide. 

Aston Martin's accessories team have also provided a full suite of options for those looking to add further race-inspired styling to their DB11. 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 brings that same AMR ethos within the cabin. For those heading off for weekend, expertly tailored luggage sets are available to match the car's specification.
