Aston Martin DB11 AMR – new 639 PS V12 flagship

Aston Martin has introduced the new DB11 AMR, which replaces the outgoing V12-engined DB11 as the new flagship of the DB11 range. According to Gaydon, the DB11 AMR boasts greater power, increased performance, enhanced driving dynamics and a more characterful exhaust note, together with a suite of exterior and interior enhancements.
At the heart of the DB11 AMR is the firm’s twin-turbocharged 5.2 litre V12 engine. Now developing 630 bhp (639 PS), that’s 30 bhp more than the outgoing DB11 V12, and 127 bhp more than the AMG V8-engined DB11. Torque remains unchanged at 700 Nm. A 0-100 km/h time of 3.7 seconds is two tenths faster than before and top speed is 335 km/h, making it the fastest model in Aston Martin’s current series production range.
Elsewhere, the the handling of DB11 AMR has been refined for “a greater sense of connection without harming the supple ride”. A new shift calibration for the transmission and a slightly more vocal exhaust note ensures the DB11 AMR expresses its character more explicitly when Sport mode is engaged.

Visually, the DB11 AMR is distinguished by a co-ordinated palette of exposed carbon fibre and gloss black detailing. On the outside, all brightwork has been given a monochrome treatment: dark headlight surrounds and smoked tail lamps complimented by dark front grille and tailpipes; gloss black roof, roof strake plus side sills and splitter offering a subtle contrast with the exposed weave of the CF hood blades and side strakes.
The dark theme continues inside, with monotone leather and alcantara upholstery and a contrasting central lime stripe.
In addition to the wide choice of standard colour and trim options, the DB11 AMR is available in three Designer Specifications, plus an exclusive AMR Signature Edition, which carries a striking Stirling Green and lime livery.

With lots of carbon fibre detailing on the exterior, the inside is equally striking, with Dark Knight leather and lime detailing, plus Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fibre trim. Limited to 100 units worldwide, the AMR Signature Edition is priced at £201,995 (RM1,093,097).
Race-inspired accessories include a carbon fibre engine cover, exhaust tips and a deployable spoiler, while a new carbon fibre sports steering wheel and paddle shifters bring some Aston Martin Racing to the cabin. Luggage sets are available to match the car’s specification.
“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. With the exceptional V8 Coupe and Volante we felt the V12 could reveal more of its sporting potential, while remaining the consummate GT,” said Aston Martin president and CEO Dr Andy Palmer.
“It’s a combination that engages and cossets in equal measure to create a dynamic and seductive new flagship for the DB11 range, while consolidating the existing V12-powered DB11s as future collectibles,” he added.
The Aston Martin DB11 AMR is available from £174,995 (RM946,868) in the UK, with first customer deliveries in this quarter. The regular DB11 with the 510 PS/675 Nm V8 engine was launched in Malaysia last month with a base price of around RM1.8 million.
