Aston Martin DB11 AMR unleashed

2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR

It was revealed at a brand spanking new Aston Martin Racing (AMR) Performance Center at the Nürburgring. Deliveries in the United States start this summer.

The 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR will be offered in a variety of configurations, including an AMR Signature Edition in Stirling Green and lime.

Replacing the two-year-old DB11 V12, which accounts for 40% of annual DB11 sales, the DB11 AMR gets an uprated twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre powerplant that develops 630bhp at 6500rpm and 516lb ft at 1500rpm.

Utilizing the same 5.2-liter V12 as the standard DB11, the AMR variant adds 30 more horsepower bringing the total output up to 630 hp while torque remains strong at almost 500 lb-ft.

"A slightly more vocal exhaust note ensures the DB11 AMR expresses its character more explicitly when Sport mode is engaged", the automaker said. But, if you're not down with AMR, a quick backgrounder for you: Early a year ago, Aston launched the Vantage AMR Pro and the Rapide AMR, the first salvos in a full broadside of AMR models that will encompass the entire range.

Visual changes include the addition of a smattering of carbon fibre and gloss black details to the DB11's interior and exterior. A similarly fettled Rapide is on the way, but today the series has taken its first step into Aston's Second Century, with the announcement of the DB11 AMR. With the AMR on sale now at a starting price of £174,955 - almost £20,000 more than the outgoing V12, and £30,000 more than a V8 - that gap has certainly been achieved.

As with the existing V-12, the new AMR relies on a mid-mounted eight-speed automatic gearbox, but its shift points have been recalibrated. These AMR edition cars will sport monochromatic black accents, with smoked taillamps, darkened headlight surrounds, and a dark front grille and exhaust pipes.

The DB11 AMR Signature Edition is also available in three Designer Specifications. For the AMR, the transmission is retuned, the exhaust has more bark - this vehicle feels much more like the V12 we hoped to discover when driving the standard version. Production will be limited to 100 units and each with have a Dark Knight leather interior with Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fiber trim.

Chassis and suspension dynamics have also been revised to deliver crisper and more precise handling, for what Aston bills as a "greater connection" with the road. The base price for the US market is $241,000 plus delivery fees and the first cars are expected to reach American showrooms this coming summer.
