Aston Martin DBS Superleggera AMR To Add Even More Performance

Aston Martin has acknowledged that an even faster version of the potent DBS Superleggera should see the light of day.

Speaking to Australia’s Motoring during the recent global launch of the Ferrari 812 Superfast rival, an unnamed senior executive from the British marque said such a vehicle is probable.

“We produced an AMR version of the previous Vantage and have an AMR Rapide and DB11, so it’s safe to assume a DBS Superleggera is coming,” they said.

According to this executive, the DBS Superleggera was designed from the outset to leave space for a punchier variant.

Thought the DBS Superleggera was insane enough? Just wait…

If the modifications made to the Aston Martin DB11 AMR are anything to go by, the DBS Superleggera AMR will receive revised spring rates and modified adaptive dampers better suited to track work. Additionally, Aston Martin is tipped to launch the model with a bespoke rear limited-slip differential to further its performance.

According to Aston Martin, the twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine of the DBS Superleggera has been engineered to reliably handle 750 hp so with some minor tweaks, this figure is likely for the AMR and a respectable jump over the 715 hp of the existing model.

They’ll also be the usual recipe of weight saving measures as you’d expect from a go-fast model of any modern day supercar. Consequently, carbon fiber should be used comprehensively in the DBS Superleggera AMR’s construction, including many of its interior and exterior parts.

With these alterations, the car’s acceleration and top speed will both improve.

No official word as been given as to when we can expect to see the vehicle in the flesh but a launch late next year seems probable.

      The new Vanquish will be a mid engined competitor to the McLaren 720, Ferrari 488, it’s not going to be a version of the DB11.

  • SAD THAT ASTON MARTIN HAS JOINED THE RANKS OF CARS WITH OBNOXIOUS GRILLES.

  • Would love to see the stripped out extreme version rather than just slightly faster version of the regular model.

    In spite of the cleft palate grille, this thing looks really good.

    It’s great to see Aston Martin make competitive supercars once more. I hope this AMR trim delivers much more than just some power and a little weight-saving, and I still wish they made a hardcore version out of this DBS. They should have just called it the DBS and save the “Superleggera” for the stripped out, track-loving version.

    I had a feeling an AMR version would come.
