Aston Martin DB11 Gets an AMR Treatment

Aston Martin just updated its lineup by bringing the AMR treatment to its DB11. The 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR may not necessarily be the perfect car on the race track, but it suits consumers who want a larger and more focused version of the DB11.

The AMR version of the DB11 has been revealed at the Aston Martin’s Nurburgring test center. It replaces the standard V-12 DB11 in Aston Martin’s lineup and brings a new 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 that can deliver a whopping 630 horsepower.

This new output now has the capacity to go 62 mph from a complete standstill in just 3.7 seconds. It also has a top speed of 208 mph. The original DB11 with an output of 600 horsepower can do that in 3.9 seconds, and has a top speed of just 200 mph.

The straight-line speed is not just where the DB11 has been upgraded. The team over at Aston Martin also made sure that it will have an improved feedback without harming the car’s supple ride. They also added a more aggressive shift calibration for the 8-speed automatic transmission. And for those of you who love the feel and the sound of a more powerful engine, the DB11 AMR has a more vocal exhaust note.

Distinguishing the DB11 AMR visually are the number of darkened elements and exposed carbon fiber. This dark theme will continue inside—from the dark leather and Alcantara upholstery accented with a contrasting central stripe in AMR’s signature lime color. It also has a leather-wrapped sports steering wheel.

If you want your DB11 AMR to have a more race-car-inspired style, you can choose to have the engine cover, exhaust outlet, rear spoiler, steering wheel, and paddle shifters all in carbon fiber.

The Aston Martin DB11 AMR will go on sale this summer with a starting price of $241,000. There’s also a special AMR Signature Edition of the car. There will only be 100 units of the DB11 AMR that features a Stirling Green exterior with lime accents.

Top 4 Features of the Aston Martin DB11 Q

The Aston Martin DB11 Q will be showcased at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. The car is the tailored version of the DB11 that was released in 2016. It should be noted that the DB11 is the successor of the DB9.

Check out the 4 key features of the car below according on a source:

1. Exterior

The Aston Martin DB11 Q comes in Zaffre Blue. The paint job features an exclusive finish which gives an illusion that it changes its colors based on the lighting present in its environment. The wheel is also finished in blue to match the car’s body color. Then the front splitter, sills at the side, rear diffuser, bonnet lines, mirror caps, badges, and hubcaps are all made from carbon fiber materials.

2. Interior

The interior surfaces of the DB11 Q is covered in Obsidian Black semi-aniline leather. The same Zaffre Blue theme is used to give more details to the linings of the seats, side panels and to the stitching found in the car’s dashboard. Of course, there are a couple of “Q” badges inside to highlight the special identity of the auto.

3. Engine

The DB11 Q is powered by a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine. The unit can produce up to 600 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The numbers allow the auto to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. Its top speed is electronically-limited at 200 mph.

4. Pricing

Aston Martin didn’t release specific information about the cost of the DB11 Q. That’s because the pricing of the car depends on the specifications set by the customer to it. But as a reference, the base model of the vehicle is around $211,995, so buyers should expect to pay more than that.

Aston Martin To Overhaul Lineup With Seven-Model Range

Aston Martin said it’s not overhauling its lineup, but it sure looks like it since it announced that it is looking to build a seven-model lineup. It will mark a new era for the British luxury car brand.

Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer told Car & Driver that the new model range will begin with replacing the already existing V8 Vantage. It will still be called the same and is expected to be launched next year.

It will use the AMG-sourced 4.0-liter twin turbo V-8 engine, marking the first time the brand is using this specific powertrain. Drivers can choose between a manual and automatic transmission. There’s a rumored V-12 version of the Vantage, but Aston Martin hasn’t announced plans yet for that. It hasn’t even confirmed if it is even building one.

As soon as the replacement Vantage comes out in the market, Aston Martin said it will start working on a new Vanquish, which is scheduled to come out in 2018. There are no details yet about the supercar, although Palmer said the Vanquish will likely have the technologies that is coming out in the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing partnership.

Apparently, the new Vanquish might come with structural carbon fiber and KERS technology.

Aside from the two initial models, Aston Martin is also preparing the DB11, which was first seen during the Geneva Auto Show. A replacement for the DB9, the DB11 will come with the newly developed 5.2-liter turbocharged V-12 engine. It will arrive around the same time as the Vantage. There would also be a V-8 version, but there are no specific plans yet for that.

To round up the models are two others we already heard about—the Lagonda SUV and the DBX electric crossover. There are also other possibilities such as the RapidE Concept, the V-12 version of the Vantage or the V-8 version of the DB11.

2017 Aston Martin DB11 Launched at Geneva Motor Show

Aston Martin may have already decided to stop using the glorious-sounding V-12 engine, but it is giving us something more to aspire for—the DB11 with a new 5.2-litre V-12 that shares bore centers with the old 5.9-litre engine.

But that is the only similarity between the old V-12 engine and the new power unit of the Aston Martin DB11. Everything else is new. It has an engine capable of 600 horsepower—60hp more than the DB9 GT—which would most likely help potential buyers to move on from the V-12.

The DB11 unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 can produce 516 lb-ft of torque, available from 1500 rpm to 5000 rpm. Compare this to the DB9’s max of only 457 lb-ft arrived at a lofty 5500 rpm, and you’ve got true power on your hands.

Aston Martin promises that the DB11’s engine can deliver lag-free response with one turbocharger and intercooler per bank. This can lead to cylinder deactivation as the engine shuts down a whole bank to become a 2.6-liter inline-six. It uses an eight-speed ZF automatic like on the Vanquish, with the power sent to the rear wheels through a torque-vectoring differential.

Dimensions of the DB11 are very similar to the Aston Martin DB9. The only difference is that the DB11 is 1.2 inches longer, 2.7 inches wider, and 0.3 inches higher. It also sits on a wheelbase that is 2.5 inches longer. The weight is also nearly identical at 3902 pounds, with the DB11 only being slightly 33 pounds lighter.

This is quite a conundrum since Aston Martin already said the new engine will be heavier, so the body’s shell mass is drastically reduced with the use of carbon fiber. In terms of interior, the DB11 has more space since it has almost usable rear seats compared to the DB9.

The Aston Martin DB11 will be priced at $214,820 in the United States. The first deliveries will start in the fourth quarter of this year.
