Aston Martin DB11 AMR revealed

Aston Martin DB11 AMR revealed

Pricing for the 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR starts at $241,000.

Of the DB11 AMR Aston Martin CEO, Andy Palmer said: "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".

Replacing the two-year-old DB11 V12, which accounts for 40% of annual DB11 sales, the DB11 AMR gets an uprated twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre powerplant that develops 630bhp at 6500rpm and 516lb ft at 1500rpm.

Not only does that ensure the hottest DB11 now has 127bhp of breathing space compared with the entry-level AMG V8-powered auto, it also provides the DB11 AMR with muscle to worry its archrivals, including the 626bhp Bentley Continental GT W12 and 621bhp V12 Mercedes-AMG S65. A new shift calibration for the transmission and a slightly more vocal exhaust note ensures the DB11 AMR expresses its character more explicitly when Sport mode is engaged.

All of the standard DB11 brightwork now gets a monochrome treatment, including the dark headlight surrounds, smoked tail lamps and darkened front grille and tailpipes.

The AMR can be picked out from lesser DB11s by its numerous styling changes. The upgrade comes as Aston attempts to accentuate the difference between the V12 model and the recently introduced V8 DB11.

Mourinho insisted he will not field a young team against Watford, even though United are assured of second place behind champions Manchester City.

Inside, it gets plenty of carbon fiber and gloss black detailing to match the sporty exterior.

Inside, the black-and-carbon-fibre theme is carried on, with monotone leather and Alcantara upholstery offset by other weave details and the central lime stripe on the seats.

The chassis development team, led by chief engineer Matt Becker, has provided the AMR variant with the more agile suspension and geometry set-up of the younger V8 model.

Alongside the regular trim options for the AMR, which now includes a new carbonfibre steering wheel, there are three so-called Designer Specifications available.

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 auto, which you should look for here in about two weeks. The Signature Edition is limited to just 100 examples and comes in a striking green-on-green livery with extra carbon fibre bodywork. Inside, the limited edition will have Dark Knight leather and Lime detailing, Satin Dark Chrome switchgear, and Satin Carbon Fiber trim. It is expected to reach buyers just in time for summer.
