Khodrocar - Aston Martin combines high-speed capability with luxurious surroundings for the new DB11 AMR that sits at the top of the range of the already capable grand tourer. It packs an impressive 630 horsepower from Aston's biturbo 5.2-liter V12 – a 30-hp boost over the standard DB11 V12 that the AMR replaces. Torque remains at 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters).
The additional horsepower lets the grand tourer hit 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 3.7 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds quicker than before. Top speed grows to 208 mph (335 kph) – 8 mph (13 kph) faster than the regular DB11 V12. Owners can hear the extra performance because the AMR also features a slightly louder exhaust.
Aston Martin claims that the DB11 AMR is more engaging to drive, too. Among the tweaks, the development team revises the shift calibration for the eight-speed automatic and tweaks the suspension setup for sharper handling.
The DB11 AMR features some minor aesthetic upgrades that give the exterior a slightly more aggressive appearance. Rather than chrome, Aston now uses a dark monochrome finish for the parts. The firm also adds dark trim around the headlights and smoked taillights. There's also a gloss black roof and exposed carbon fiber bits on the hood and side strakes.
Buyers looking to dress up the body should check out the limited-edition AMR Signature Edition (above). It'll come in Stirling Green with Lime pinstripes and exposed carbon fiber trim. The cabin features Dark Knight black leather with Lime details, and there's a mix of carbon fiber and Satin Dark Chrome trim. Aston only intends to build 100 of these special models.
The DB11 AMR launches this summer for a base price of $241,000 in the United States. Aston only offers U.K. pricing for the AMR Signature Edition, but it goes for 201,995 pounds ($274,295 at current exchange rates).
