  • 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR

On sale now, the standard DB11 AMR is priced from £174,995, a jump of £17,095 over the outgoing DB11 V12.

Power from the DB11's 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 is up by 30hp to 640hp while torque remains unchanged at 516lb ft. But, if you're not down with AMR, a quick backgrounder for you: Early a year ago, 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.

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.

With more power, the Aston Martin DB11 gets a new flagship model from the AMR division which is faster and quicker than the standard V12.

The model was revealed at the opening of the AMR Performance Center at the Nurburgring track.

Aston has also wrought sufficient cosmetic tweaks to make the current V12 DB11 look like yesterday's auto, with all the shiny bits on the outside replaced with carbon fibre or gloss black, smoky lights and tail pipes. The front grille is dark-finish, too, along with the tailpipes; the roof is gloss black, as is the roof strake, side sills, and splitter, contrasting with exposed carbon fiber hood blades and side strakes. 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.

Amazon , which operates an online marketplace in India, was reportedly in talks with Flipkart as well - but Walmart won it. He said Walmart buys more than 90 percent of goods locally in every country where it runs stores and e-commerce business.

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. "With the exceptional V8 Coupe and Volante we felt the V12 could reveal more of its sporting potential, while remaining the consummate GT". These include a carbon-fibre engine cover, exhaust tips and a deployable spoiler that add further detail to the model's exterior, while a new carbon-fibre sports steering wheel and paddeshifts bring that same AMR ethos within the cabin.

The automaker will offer three Designer Specifications, along with a limited edition model finished in AMR's signature Stirling Green and lime. This more aggressive theme continues inside, where there's more monochrome trim and Alcantara upholstery, along with a lime central stripe on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. Buyers can also specify a matching tailored luggage set. We like how they went with a black dash and a mix between carbon and Satin Dark Chrome trim.
