Aston Martin presented a powerful coupe

Share

It should be noted that the AMR has 127 more hp than the V8-powered DB11 GT, good for a new top speed of 208 miles per hour and a 3.7-sec 0-62 time. Inspired by Aston Martin Racing's endurance programme, the new model is tweaked in most areas compared with the regular DB11, to help with driving dynamics, performance, and design.

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 vehicle, which you should look for here in about two weeks.

Unspecified suspension and chassis changes are claimed to deliver "a greater sense of connection without harming the supple ride", Aston claims, and we've no reason to doubt it.

The Aston Martin DB11 AMR has been revealed as Aston's new range-topping DB11, with more power, improved performance and a bigger price - the DB11 AMR starts at £174,995. First, they teased us with an image of a new DBS Superleggera which will be their flagship model of the brand, to their new Vantage hitting the racetracks, a last hurrah to the old Vantage V12 with the V600, the announcement of a Luxury SUV from Lagonda and even plans for an Aston Martin-badged submarine.

Amazon and Sears make tire installation deal
Walmart (WMT), which also installs tires, tumbled 3.6% after announcing a $16 billion deal to buy 77% of India's Flipkart. On Wednesday, the companies announced an extension of their relationship to now include tire delivery and installations.

Aston has also wrought sufficient cosmetic tweaks to make the current V12 DB11 look like yesterday's vehicle, with all the shiny bits on the outside replaced with carbon fibre or gloss black, smoky lights and tail pipes. 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. Gloss black for the roof, grille, sills and splitter are key identifiers, likewise darker finishes for the lighting units.

Aston Martin will offer a special edition DB11 AMR from launch too with three Designer Specifications, plus an exclusive AMR Signature Edition, which carries a striking Stirling Green and lime livery. A number of carbon fibre parts can be specified throughout, including a sports steering wheel and engine cover.

The standard Aston Martin DB11 AMR is scheduled for deliveries very soon with prices starting from £174,995 in the United Kingdom, $241,000 in the USA and €218,595 in Germany.

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. This variant gets more carbonfibre detailing and an interior trimmed with Dark Knight leather and contrasting lime details. Previous AMR models made power bumps with new exhaust systems, and given the DB11 AMR's exhaust revisions, we wouldn't be surprised if some of the power increase came from the exhaust side of things. Buyers can also specify a matching tailored luggage set.
