  • Aston Martin DB11 AMR

It takes the DB11 AMR to accelerate from 0-100km/h 3.7 seconds which is two tenths faster than the normal auto.

Long rumored, the 2019 Aston Martin DB11 Grand Tourer is making its official debut today - not entirely a surprise after some initial details accidentally leaked out over the last few days. It produces 630 horsepower of the United Kingdom variety (639 metric HP) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque.

The dark theme continues inside, with monotone leather and alcantara upholstery and a bold contrasting central lime stripe, while DB11 AMR is treated to a leather sports steering wheel as standard. 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.

The AMR is powered by the same 5.2-litre V12 petrol engine as before, but it now produces 630bhp - 30bhp more than the outgoing model. It was revealed at a brand spanking new Aston Martin Racing (AMR) Performance Center at the Nürburgring.

Aston Martin has added a new dimension of race-inspired dynamism and performance to the DB11 family, with the introduction of the new DB11 AMR.
