Aston Martin’s New Flagship Supercar: 208-mph DB11 AMR

The British marque amps up the DB11's V12 goodness with its new flagship model.

Aston Martin is introducing a higher-performance flagship edition of its top-of-the-line model: the 208-mph DB11 AMR. The new model has Aston Martin’s twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V12, but it has been upgraded to 630 horsepower, a 30 horsepower bump over the regular DB11 V12 and 127 horsepower more than the DB11’s V8. Torque remains unchanged at 516 lb.-ft, reports Maxim. The small boost in power translates into a 0-62 mph acceleration time of 3.7 seconds—an improvement of 0.2 seconds from the regular DB11—and its top speed rises to 208mph. The automatic transmission now has a sportier shift calibration for gear changes and the exhaust system provides a better soundtrack for the V12 when the DB11 is on sport mode, writes Maxim. 

The outside of the AMR gets a monochrome treatment, with exposed carbon fiber and gloss black detailing. Buyers can personalize their DB11 AMRs with exterior details like a carbon-fiber engine cover and exhaust tips, plus a deployable spoiler as well as a new carbon-fiber sports steering wheel and paddle shifters in the cabin.

The Aston Martin flagship DB11 AMR will go on sale starting at $241,000.
