The Aston Martin DB11 AMR is arguably one of the finest V12 coupes available in the market right now, built for both daily duty as well as spirited drives on your favorite back road or even a track.
Aston Martin uses the AMR nameplate to signify that this DB11 is the flagship of the range, featuring the company’s own twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine sitting under the clamshell bonnet producing 630 HP and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque, the latter from just 1,500 rpm.
With the help of its mighty V12, the Aston Martin DB11 AMR is capable of a 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds (0-100 km/h in 3.7) and can reach a top speed of 208 mph (334 km/h).
The chassis has been further refined to deliver a sharper response without disrupting Aston’s characteristic supple ride, with the use of reworked dampers, a thicker anti-roll bar and updated bushings. The eight-speed automatic transmission has also received a new shift calibration while the exhaust is slightly fruitier than before, when Sport mode is engaged.
The AMR variant of the Aston Martin DB11 is visually distinguished by a range of exposed-carbon elements, dark brightwork that includes the headlight surrounds, the front grille, the taillpipes and the smoked taillights, as well as gloss black details like the roof, side sills and splitter.
Overall, the Aston Martin DB11 AMR is a very civilized super tourer that can growl on demand and fill its driver with confidence when pushing hard, which is what you want from your 200mph-plus sports car. Add to that the seductive styling both inside and out, and it’s now wonder why Jay Leno fell in love with it in his latest video.
