ASTON Martin during the May 11 opening of its AMR Performance Center in Nurburgring, Germany, introduced the new DB11 AMR, which replaced the V12 engine-powered DB11 as the flagship variant.

The car maker said the DB11 AMR “boasts greater power, increased performance, enhanced driving dynamics and a more soulful exhaust note.” The new variant also comes with a suite of exterior and interior enhancements.

Powering the DB11 AMR is a twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 engine that makes 630 hp, which is 30 hp more than the unit in the DB11 V12 and 127 hp more than the DB11 V8’s engine. Meanwhile, torque remains unchanged at 700 Nm.

Aston Martin said the DB11 AMR is 0.2 seconds quicker from a standstill to 100 kph than the DB11 V12, or a time of 3.7 seconds for the former versus 3.7 seconds for the latter. The DB11 AMR’s 335 kph top speed makes it one of the world’s swiftest GT cars, as well as the fastest model in Aston Martin’s current range.

The DB11 AMR is distinguished by a exposed carbon fiber and gloss black detailing. The dark theme that continues inside (monotone leather and Alcantara upholstery) is contrasted by a bright lime stripe. An AMR Signature Edition features a Stirling Green and lime livery.
