Aston Martin DB11 AMR debuts with 630 horsepower

2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR

The DB11 AMR starts at $241,000 in the United States, though the AMR Signature Edition goes for 201,995 pounds, ($274,000). Replacing the existing DB11 V12 - despite that only being launched in 2016 - and throwing 30 more horsepower into the mix, it gives the range a new, more potent flagship.

The DB11 AMR is distinguished by exposed carbon fiber and gloss black detailing. Torque remains the same at 516 lb-ft. The roof is gloss black and around back gets smoked tail lamps and tailpipes. As a result, the AMR features a dark front grille, a carbon fiber splitter and black headlight surrounds.

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

AMR, of course, is shorthand for Aston Martin Racing, and first debuted at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show on the outgoing Vantage. With the AMR on sale now at a starting price of £174,955 - almost £20,000 more than the outgoing V12, and £30,000 more than a V8 - that gap has certainly been achieved. That extra power, plus some aero tweaks, brings the car's top speed up to a very generous 208 miles-per-hour and drops its 0-to-60 mph time to just 3.5 seconds.

Weekend forecast: A little rain, a little sunshine
This cold front will once again overspread the area with showers and may spark up a few gustier thunderstorms. Today was a gorgeous end to the work week under plentiful sunshine and highs in the 60s region-wide.

Compared to the V-8-engined variants, the DB11 AMR Signature Edition boasts a 136 hp advantage. Meanwhile, the already aggressive DB11 exhaust note has been amped up a few notches. The AMR's Sport driving mode features recalibrated gearshifts for the eight-speed automatic gearbox and a slightly louder exhaust note, while Aston claims that the vehicle strikes "the ideal balance between excitement and refinement" thanks to its reworked suspension.

The AMR sub-brand is all about drawing from Aston's racing efforts, which explains the performance upgrades; it also means the DB11 AMR will get a retuned chassis and performance specs that look like zero-to-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds versus the old V12's 3.9. 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. With the AMR, he added, "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-[208 mph]-and more precise", stated Aston Martin CEO and President, Dr. Andy Palmer, in the DB11 AMR's press release.
