Combining power and elegance, the DB11 AMR features an upgraded twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine that produces 630 hp (470 kW / 639 PS) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a recalibrated eight-speed automatic transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds before hitting a top speed of 208 mph (334 km/h).
The performance improvements extend beyond the engine as Aston Martin says the chassis has been refined to offer a “greater sense of connection without harming the supple ride.” The company was coy on specifics but the model features a limited-slip differential and adaptive dampers.
On the styling front, the DB11’s chrome brightwork has been replaced by gloss black accents and exposed carbon fiber components. As a result, the AMR features a dark front grille, a carbon fiber splitter and black headlight surrounds. Moving further back, we can see a gloss black roof, carbon fiber mirror caps and 20-inch forged alloy wheels with a dark finish. Other highlights include tinted taillights and carbon fiber accents on the front fender vents.
The interior largely carries over but drivers will find a sport steering wheel and leather seats with a contrasting central lime stripe. The car also has Alcantara upholstery as well as AMR badging on the headrests and door sill plates.
Customers looking for something more unique will be able to order the model in three Designer Specifications as well as a limited edition variant. The latter features a Stirling Green exterior with lime accents as well as “extensive carbon fiber detailing.” Production will be limited to 100 units and each will have a Dark Knight leather interior with Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fiber trim.
Speaking of options, customers will be able to order a carbon fiber engine cover and carbon fiber exhaust tips. The AMR can also be outfitted with a carbon fiber sport steering wheel and a custom luggage set that is designed to match the car.
Pricing starts at £174,995 in the United Kingdom and $241,000 in the United States. The first deliveries are slated to occur in the second quarter of 2018.
