Inspired by Aston Martin Racing’s motorsport endurance racing programme the DB11 AMR performance derivative features a Mercedes AMG, twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12.

A 0-62mph time of 3.7sec is an improvement of 0.2sec over the outgoing model while a top speed of 208mph makes the DB11 AMR the fastest model in Aston Martin’s current series production range.
Visually the DB11 AMR is distinguished by a co-ordinated palette of exposed carbon fibre and gloss black detailing that unites the exterior and interior treatment.
