The Aston Martin DB11 AMR is your grand touring supercar

The Aston Martin DB11 AMR is your grand touring supercar

The new DB11 AMR will become the fast model in Aston's current line-up - top speed 208 miles per hour.

The 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR Signature Edition is the marque's latest top dog and starts at $241,000 if you want to take it for a spin.

The DB11 AMR joins the V8-powered base DB11 coupe and convertible in the range, and will split the difference between those cars and the upcoming DBS Superleggera super-GT.

The 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR is available to order now, and will begin rolling out in the second quarter of 2018. According to Aston, the new exhaust is more vocal than the base vehicle and shows more character when you're in sport mode. But, if you're not down with AMR, a quick backgrounder for you: Early past year, Aston launched the Vantage AMR Pro and the Rapide AMR, the first salvos in a full broadside of AMR models that will encompass the entire range.

The AMR can be picked out from lesser DB11s by its numerous styling changes. The V12 now generates 630 horsepower, 30 more than the outgoing DB11 V12, and 127 horsepower more than the V8-powered DB11.

Outside, the DB11 AMR features carbon-fiber and gloss black accents, along with darkened headlights and taillights.

As with the existing V-12, the new AMR relies on a mid-mounted eight-speed automatic gearbox, but its shift points have been recalibrated. There are two AMR subdivisions - AMR is handled by Aston's main design and engineering teams, while the Pros are handled by the Advanced Operations department.

"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". A number of carbon fibre parts can be specified throughout, including a sports steering wheel and engine cover.

The suspension was retuned to give the driver a better sense of connection to the road, says Aston, but without making it too aggressive for a grand tourer.

At the car's launch, Aston is offering a limited-edition version of the AMR with Stirling Green and lime livery that mimic the look of the division's racing models. With the AMR, he added, "we felt the V12 could reveal more of its sporting potential, while remaining the consummate GT". Featuring even more extensive carbon fibre detailing on the exterior, Dark Knight leather with Lime detailing, Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fibre trim, only 100 examples will be sold worldwide, priced at £26,000 more than the standard auto. It is expected to reach buyers just in time for summer.
