An increased top speed of 208mph and an improved 0-62 time of 3.7 seconds - 0.2 seconds quicker than before - is the result. More to the point, the twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 now scoots the DB11 AMR to 60 miles per hour in just 3.5 seconds, and top speed is increased to 208 miles per hour.

The twin-turbo AMR version of DB11's V-12 punches out 30 more hp at 630 and 512 lb-ft trque. Inside, the dark leatherr and alcantara is broken by a bold central lime stripe. Similarly, 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. The DB11 AMR is cementing its place as the flagship in the DB11 lineup as it serves as a replacement for the V12-powered DB11. 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.

Aston Martin is upping the DB11 with the introduction of the 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR.

Chassis and suspension dynamics have also been revised to deliver crisper and more precise handling, for what Aston bills as a "greater connection" with the road. But, if you're not down with AMR, a quick backgrounder for you: Early previous year, Aston launched the Vantage AMR Pro and the Rapide AMR, the first salvos in a full broadside of AMR models that will encompass the entire range. "With the exceptional V8 Coupe and Volante we felt the V12 could reveal more of its sporting potential, while remaining the consummate GT".

In addition to the extensive 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 Stirling Green and lime livery. A number of carbon fibre parts can be specified throughout, including a sports steering wheel and engine cover.

The Aston Martin DB11 AMR is available from £174,995 (INR 1.59 crore) in the United Kingdom, $241,000 (INR 1.62 crore) in the USA and €218,595 (INR 1.76 crore) in Germany, with first customer deliveries in Q2 2018. Buyers can also specify a matching tailored luggage set. The company was coy on specifics but the model features a limited-slip differential and adaptive dampers. Production will be limited to 100 units and each with have a Dark Knight leather interior with Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fiber trim.
