Aston Martin flaunts its latest model that boasts a top speed of 208 mph. The DB11 AMR will reportedly replace the outgoing DB11 V12.
All About The Upgrades
The newest grand tourer teases a tuned twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 powerhouse capable of up to 630 horsepower. Details show that it can generate a maximum of 516 lb-ft of torque. Everything is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which is recalibrated to allow the car to go from zero to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds.
Alongside the reworked engine and transmission, the manufacturer claims that that new model offers better handling, a significant boost in power, improved aerodynamics, and a luxurious interior exclusive to the AMR version.
Beyond its engine, the company claims that its chassis likewise received some form of refinement. Nothing was specified but sources believe its adaptive dampers and limited-slip differential deliver a "greater sense of connection without harming the supple ride."
Less Chrome More Black
Onlookers could immediately notice that the Aston Martin DB11 AMR forgoes its predecessor's chrome accents in favor of glossy black replacements. The vehicle sports a darker color scheme thanks to its carbon fiber splitter, a front grille with darker colors, and headlight surrounds in black. The carbon fiber mirror caps, 20-inch forged alloy wheels in a black finish, as well as a black roof complete its dark ensemble.
To contrast the exterior shade, its interior is mostly populated by Alcantara upholstery and brown leather on the seats and everywhere else. Noticeable lime stripes were presumably added to break the monotony of blacks and brown that dot the inside of the AMR.
For those who want their ride to stand out from the rest can order a limited edition variant of the automobile called the AMR Signature Edition. Instead of the regular black and dark accents, it touts a Stirling Green paint scheme with lime accents, mixed together with "extensive carbon fiber detailing."
It also switches up the interior and uses a Dark Knight leather and carbon fiber trims. According to the manufacturer, only 100 units will be available.
It seems that the AMR relies extensively on carbon fiber for most of its design. Therefore, it is not really a surprise that customers can order the engine cover, exhaust tips, and steering wheel to be made from the same material.
Availability And Price
Interested buyers can purchase the Aston Martin DB11 AMR for $241,000. The first batch of deliveries will be available sometime in the second quarter of 2018.
