- Produces 638hp
- Sprints from 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds
- On sale now
Aston Martin has revealed a new flagship version of its DB11 coupe. Named the AMR – standing for Aston Martin Racing – this new model comes with sportier styling, a flasher interior and more power than the, er, ‘measly’ 608hp standard model.

The AMR’s optional two-tone paint means you won’t have trouble finding the DB11 AMR in a crowded carpark – even one full of other Aston Martin DB11s. It gives the AMR a glossy dark green finish while the bonnet, side skirts and brake callipers are treated to highlights in lurid lime. You also get plenty of exposed carbon fibre, while the 20-inch alloy wheels, grille, exhaust tips and lower halves of the bumpers are painted black.
If that isn’t enough, Aston Martin can also kit your AMR out with a carbon-fibre retractable spoiler, carbon fibre exhaust tips and a carbon fibre engine cover but that lot will cost you (rather a lot) extra.
Thankfully, the changes aren’t reserved for the AMR’s appearance – the DB11’s 5.2-litre V12 engine now produces 638hp – that’s 30hp more than in the standard car. As a result, it’ll blast from 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds instead of the ‘leisurely’ 3.9 seconds taken by the standard DB11. Meanwhile, its top speed sees rises from 200 to 208mph – sure to be handy on the UK’s 70mph motorways.
Unfortunately, an uprated exhaust means Plod will hear you before they see you, but at least the tweaked, faster-shifting gearbox and stiffer suspension means the chances of them catching are basically zero.
Far from a boy racer mobile though, the AMR offers the very epitome of luxury thanks to its of two-tone leather sports seats and a flat-bottomed steering wheel that add a sporty twist to the leather and Alcantara upholstery carried over from the standard DB11.
