Aston Martin DB11 AMR

Aston Martin has pulled the wraps off the DB11 AMR at the opening of the AMR Performance Center at the Nürburgring. 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. DB11 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, and top speed is increased to 208 MPH.

Unspecified suspension and chassis changes are claimed to deliver “a greater sense of connection without harming the supple ride,” Aston claims, and we’ve no reason to doubt it. A new transmission calibration rounds out the dynamic changes.

On the styling front, the DB11’s chrome brightwork has been replaced by gloss black accents and exposed carbon fiber components.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. There’s much more exposed carbon fiber and a smattering of gloss black detailing, smoked tail lamps, and dark, monotone leather/Alcantara draped throughout the interior.

The U.S. MSRP will be $241,000, and the cars will be delivered to owners in summer 2018.
