Aston Martin DB11 AMR revealed

Aston Martin DB11 AMR revealed

Its 0-100 km/h time of 3.7sec is an improvement of 0.2sec over the outgoing model while a top speed of 208 miles per hour makes the DB11 AMR one of the world's swiftest GT cars and the fastest model in Aston Martin's current series production range.

Aston Martin also gives the range-topping DB11 sharper handling and a more aggressive sound.

"It's a combination that engages and cossets in equal measure to create a dynamic and seductive new flagship for the DB11 range, while consolidating the existing V12-powered DB11s as future collectibles", said Dr. Andy Palmer, Aston Martin president and CEO.

Aston Martin has been tight-lipped about performance specifications but the model is expected to feature a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 that produces around 700 hp (522 kW / 710 PS). The ZF-derived eight-speed automatic transmission has undergone a revised shift calibration. Owners can hear the extra performance because the AMR also features a slightly louder exhaust. Does this mean the next DBS Volante will be a bridge between those two models, or is Aston Martin holding the rear styling of the new DBS Volante close to its chest until the DBS hard-top is revealed in full? All the chrome seen on the standard vehicle has been replaced with monochrome trims along with smoked headlights and tail lights to make the DB11 look more sinister. Rather than chrome, Aston now uses a dark monochrome finish for the parts.

A range of carbon-fibre options will also be available including an engine cover, exhaust tips, a deployable bootlid spoiler and a sport steering wheel with paddle shifters. It'll come in Stirling Green with Lime pinstripes and exposed carbon fiber trim.

The dark theme continues inside, with monotone leather and alcantara upholstery and a contrasting central lime stripe.

Buyers looking to dress up the body should check out the limited-edition AMR Signature Edition (above).

Dark headlight surrounds and smoked tail-light lenses are complemented by a dark grille and tailpipes, a gloss black roof, side sills and splitter, in subtle contrast to the clear-lacquered carbon-fibre bonnet blades and side strakes.
