New Aston Martin DB11 AMR revealed with 630bhp

The Aston Martin DB11 AMR is the first model from the brand's performance arm, and it replaces the standard V12 in the line-up

Aston Martin has revealed the DB11 AMR - the new flagship to the brand’s GT range. On sale now, priced from £174,995, the AMR replaces in the standard V12 DB11 in the line-up and gains subtle mechanical and styling improvements.

The 5.2-litre twin-turbo has been tweaked to produce 630bhp, a rise of 30bhp, however peak torque remains the same at 700Nm. The extra power - in addition to an improved shift calibration for the 8-speed automatic transmission - has knocked 0.2 seconds from the 0-62 time, which now takes 3.7 seconds, while the top speed has risen to 208mph (up 8mph). Fine tuning to the exhaust says Aston Martin, makes the AMR sound ‘slightly more vocal.’

A revised suspension setup and a set of lightweight forged 20-inch wheels are claimed to give a sharper driving experience without harming ride comfort.

Those alloys are the most obvious of a range of subtle tweaks to the AMR’s styling. The roof and buttresses are finished in black, the tail lights are smoked, and there’s a mix of gloss black and exposed carbon fibre trim for the headlight surrounds, front grille and tailpipes. Racier options include an engine cover, exhaust tips, and a deployable spoiler also finished in carbon fibre.

Inside, the AMR features a lime-coloured stripe that runs through the centre of each of the seats and the roof lining. A carbon fibre steering wheel and paddle shifters have also been added.

Aston has also launched 100 limited editions versions of the AMR. Called the Signature Edition each features a green and lime exterior finish and carbon fibre detailing inside and out. The limited run model costs from £201,995.
