Aston Martin DB11 AMR 2018 pricing and specs confirmed

Aston Martin DBS Superleggera Volante pops up for the first time

Aston says the DB11 AMR will cost from $428,000 before on-road costs locally, with deliveries beginning very soon - during Q2 2018.

With the added grunt, the new performance coupe can run the 0-100km/h dash in a claimed 3.7 seconds, 0.2 seconds faster than before.

Aston Martin boss Andy Palmer suggested the new DB11 is more sports focused than its predecessor.

Aston Martin also gives the range-topping DB11 sharper handling and a more aggressive sound.

. Torque remains unchanged at 700Nm as does the eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive layout. The DB11 AMR replaces the standard V12 version of the Grand Tourer. 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. Does this mean the next DBS Volante will be a bridge between those two models, or is Aston Martin holding the rear styling of the new DBS Volante close to its chest until the DBS hard-top is revealed in full? 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. Beside getting a bump in power, the boosted V12 also benefits from a new stainless steel exhaust that gives the DB11 a louder performance.

Sporting credentials such as a flat-bottomed steering wheel, contrast colour brake callipers, dual exhausts and racing seats all feature in the auto.

Buyers looking to dress up the body should check out the limited-edition AMR Signature Edition (above). This variant gets a Stirling Green paint scheme with Lime pinstripes running across the bonnet along with exposed carbon fibre trim. There's also a carbon fibre and Satin Dark Chrome setting available for the GT's cabin.

The dark theme continues inside, with monotone leather and alcantara upholstery and a contrasting central lime stripe. Only 100 examples of the Signature Edition will be built by the company.
