Aston Martin has introduced the new DB11 AMR, at the opening of the new Nürburgring-based AMR Performance Centre. Replacing the outgoing V12-engined DB11 as the new flagship of the DB11 range, the DB11 AMR gets greater power, increased performance, enhanced driving dynamics, a more characterful exhaust note, and suite of exterior and interior enhancements.
Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 2017, the AMR performance derivative has already delivered the previous-generation Vantage AMR and AMR Pro, with the forthcoming Rapide AMR. Aston Martin President & CEO, Dr Andy Palmer, said of the DB11 AMR: “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.”
The Aston Martin DB11 AMR is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12 engine developing 630bhp, an additional 30bhp compared with the outgoing DB11 V12, and 127bhp more than the V8-engined DB11. Torque remains unchanged at 700Nm.
The AMR has a 0-100 kmph time of 3.7sec, which 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 fastest GT cars and the fastest model in Aston Martin’s current series production range.

Visually the DB11 AMR gets a co-ordinated palette of exposed carbon fibre and gloss black detailing inside out. On the outside a monochrome treatment has been given with dark headlight surrounds and smoked tail lamps complimented by dark front grille and tailpipes; gloss black roof, roof strake plus side sills and splitter.
The dark theme continues inside, with monotone leather and alcantara upholstery and a contrasting central lime stripe, while DB11 AMR is treated to a leather sports steering wheel as standard. In addition, the DB11 AMR is available in three Designer Specifications, plus an exclusive AMR Signature Edition, which carries a Stirling Green and lime livery.
The inside is equally striking, with Dark Knight leather and Lime detailing, plus Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fibre trim.
Strictly limited to 100 units worldwide, the AMR Signature Edition is priced at £201,995. The Aston Martin DB11 AMR is available from $241,000 in the US with first customer deliveries in Summer 2018.
