Aston Martin has announced the introduction of a new top of the line variant of the DB11 in the Aston Martin DB11 AMR. It offers an extra 30bhp and a top speed of 333km/h and 0-100km/h of 3.7 seconds.
The new variant was launched to mark the opening of Aston Martin’s AMR Performance centre at the Nurburgring.
At the heart of the DB11 AMR is Aston Martin’s twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12. Now developing 630bhp, this gives the DB11 AMR an additional 30bhp compared with the outgoing DB11 V12, and 127bhp more than the V8-engined DB11. Torque remains unchanged at 700Nm.
Aston Martin President & Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer, said of the DB11 AMR: “Since its initial launch back in 2016 the DB11 range has matured rapidly and intelligently, selling close to 4,200 V12 examples in that period. With the exceptional V8 Coupe and Volante we felt the V12 could reveal more of its sporting potential, while remaining the consummate GT. By applying a suite of carefully considered performance and styling enhancements the DB11 AMR is both faster – 333km/h! – and more precise. 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”.
The new car is visually distinct with its use of carbon-fibre and dark surrounds, including a gloss black roof and muted leather treatment. The car is also available in three designer specifications plus one Signature spec which uses green and lime livery.
