2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR

After the preliminary announcement of the company Aston Martin has officially presented the "charged" coupe DB11 AMR.

The 5.2-liter V12 gets a 30-hp bump in the AMR over the standard issue DB11.

Visually, the AMR and V-12 versions of the DB11 might be hard to tell apart from a distance, but as you get closer you'll notice a number of revisions, starting with "a coordinated palette of exposed carbon fibre and gloss black detailing", both inside and out. Torque remains the same at 516 lb-ft. On the outside all brightwork has been given a monochrome treatment: dark headlight surrounds and smoked tail lamps complimented by dark front grille and tailpipes; gloss black roof, roof strake plus side sills and splitter offering a subtle contrast with the exposed weave of the carbon fibre hood blades and side strakes.

The interior largely carries over but drivers will find a sport steering wheel and leather seats with a contrasting central lime stripe.

The model was revealed at the opening of the AMR Performance Center at the Nurburgring track.

Stateside the DB11 AMR will retail for a base MSRP of US$241,000 when it shows up at your dealership this summer; we'll hopefully have Canadian pricing for you with our test drive of the vehicle, which you should look for here in about two weeks. It should be noted that the AMR has 127 more hp than the V8-powered DB11 GT, good for a new top speed of 208 miles per hour and a 3.7-sec 0-62 time. A 0-62mph time of 3.7sec is an improvement of 0.2sec over the outgoing model while a top speed of 208mph makes the DB11 AMR one of the world's swiftest GT cars and the fastest model in Aston Martin's current series production range. That's still an eight-speed automatic with electronic shift-by-wire, paired with a limited-slip differential and featuring launch control. Meanwhile, the already aggressive DB11 exhaust note has been amped up a few notches.

Besides the retuned engine, the DB11 AMR also has a chassis that was reworked by chief engineer Matt Becker and Aston's dynamics team.

"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 AMR, he added, "we felt the V12 could reveal more of its sporting potential, while remaining the consummate GT".

Aston Martin has ramped up the performance of the DB11 with an uprated V12 engine and race-inspired features, giving the new top variant, the DB11 AMR, enough firepower to fight it out with its most potent rivals.
