Aston Martin DB11 AMR review: 639hp supercar earns its stripes

  Aston Martin DB11 AMR review: 639hp supercar earns its stripes Faster, more powerful and sharper to drive, this Aston Martin's new flagship DB11 – replacing the V12Enter the DB11 AMR: a reworked V12 that replaces the standard car outright. With more power, a sharper chassis and cosmetic tweaks, it’s the latest offering from Aston’s sportier sub-brand – following in the tyre tracks of the Vantage AMR and Rapide AMR. Headline stats are 639hp (a 31hp gain), 0-62mph in 3.7sec (0.2 sec quicker) and a ‘continent-crushing’ 208mph top speed. No wonder it has a go-faster stripe.

What is it?

Aston Martin, responding to an increase in rival offerings has taken its DB11, boosted the output of that car’s V12 engine and produced this – the DB11 AMR. Power has been increased, handling sharpened and exhaust tuned to produce a car which is more in line with other grand tourers on the market.

Aston Martin has been keen to impress the fact that the DB11 AMR remains a true cross-country cruiser at heart, with new upgrades simply giving it better handling in the corners without diminishing the car’s comfort levels. Has it succeeded? Let’s find out.

What’s new?

There’s quite an extensive list of upgrades which have been made to the AMR over the regular DB11. The most significant is that power upgrade, now 30bhp more than the older car’s 600bhp.

The standard DB11 was never lacking punch, but Aston Martin has responded to other, more powerful cars from rival manufacturers (we’re looking at you, Bentley) and thrown some extra horsepower into the AMR for good measure. Torque, however, remains the same at 700Nm.

Aston Martin has also re-calibrated the eight-speed automatic transmission for faster shifts, while the chassis has also been re-worked to provide better cornering ability without reducing the car’s excellent comfort levels.

What’s under the bonnet?

Underneath the DB11 AMR’s long, flowing bonnet sits Aston’s glorious twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12 engine. It’s a masterpiece of engineering, and is a reminder of just how good these large-capacity units can be in a world where downsizing seems to be reigning supreme.

It can power the AMR to 60mph in 3.5 seconds, before pushing it to a top speed of 208mph. It’s a huge amount of performance, and endows this DB11 with a frankly ridiculous turn of pace – particularly for a car of this size.

Of course, economy isn’t going to be a V12’s strong suit. Aston claims that it’ll return 24.8mpg on the combined cycle, while emissions are relatively high at 265g/km when tested under the new NEDC cycle.

What’s it like to drive?

One of main complaints for the old DB11 was it felt just a little too supple in the bends, and lacked the poise that we wanted from an Aston Martin. However, this criticism has been firmly rectified. The range of tweaks to the chassis now make the DB11 genuinely capable in the corners, with body roll expertly managed and the well-weighted steering adding to the overall experience.

Aston Martin DB 11 . Aston kicks off its ‘second century plan’ with an all-new turbo V12 grand tourer. All told, the DB 11 AMR is sharper and more responsive than the old model without being any less cosseting on a longer drive .

Then there’s the sheer performance of the thing. Press the throttle and there’s an almost undetectable pause while the turbos get going. From there, power is available in spades. The first three gears are practically unusable without threatening your licence, while the whole thing is accompanied by the now-enhanced howl of a V12 – one of the best sounds in the business.

How does it look?

The regular DB11 was always an elegant thing to look at, and the AMR builds upon this. There a few distinct touches which help distinguish it from the regular car, such as dark headlight surrounds, smoked tail lamps and a gloss black roof. They’re subtle touches, we’ll admit, but they certainly do add to the car’s overall look in a positive way.

If subtlety isn’t your thing, then Aston is offering the AMR in three versions of ‘Designer Specification’, as well as a limited-edition model which features a ‘Stirling Green’ and lime livery. It’s certainly not one for shrinking violets, but if it is up your street, be quick – it’s limited to just 100 units worldwide.

What’s it like inside?

The AMR’s interior feels exceptionally well made, with a variety of high-quality materials contributing to a cabin which is just what you’d except from a prestige GT car. The seats are supportive yet comfortable, while the leather and Alcantara sports steering wheel feels excellent in the hands, both in terms of feel and shape.

The wheel is a component sometimes overlooked by manufacturers, but Aston has got it spot-on here.

The central layout of the car remains unchanged over the DB11, and as such stays just a little cluttered for our liking. The Mercedes-sourced infotainment screen isn’t too bad but lacks the sharpness or definition that we’ve come to expect, while the general button layout could do with simplifying. Though user-friendly enough, the overall feel of the central dashboard section is just a little behind the times.

What’s the spec like?

Prices for the DB11 AMR start at £174,995, and first deliveries are expected in the coming weeks. Though that is an impressively large price tag, you’re getting an awful lot of engineering and prestige for the money. That V12 is worth the cost on its own, offering up one of the very best soundtracks around, as well as colossal amount of performance.

Tottenham rival Chelsea with £15m bid for Grealish

  Tottenham rival Chelsea with £15m bid for Grealish Chelsea’s London rivals Tottenham have launched a £15 million bid for Aston Villa Jack Grealish. Twitter: BREAKING: Sky sources: @SpursOfficial have offered £15million for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish. #SSN https://t.co/iP7TebrwP8 (@SkySportsNews) Given Aston Villa’s failure to gain promotion back to the Premier League, and their subsequent financial issues, it is widely accepted that Grealish will be leaving this summer. However, Villa have apparently put a £40 million asking price on the 22-year-old, so Spurs’ offer falls way short of that valuation. There is no word if Villa have responded to the offer as of yet, but it seems likely that they’ll reject it and ask for a bid which comes closer to their valuation. There are reportedly a number of clubs interested in the England U21 international so there shouldn’t be any need to accept the offer, although the club’s financial worries could dictate otherwise. Chelsea were said to have offered Aston Villa £30 million and the option to loan the player back for another season, which raises yet more questions about Spurs’ bid.

Aston Martin has been keen to impress the fact that the DB 11 AMR remains a true cross-country cruiser at heart. Driven : 2018 BMW M3 CS. PA Motoring 0:40. Here are the motor industry’s favourite test tracks.

Prices for the regular DB11 start at around £160,000 and, while we can’t fault that car for the way it drives, we’d struggle to see why you wouldn’t just opt for this AMR version given its relative closeness in price. It’s a more capable car, and the way it drives is reason enough to pick it.

Verdict

The DB11 always felt so close to the complete package – and thanks to the tweaks added to the AMR, it now is. The way this car steers, along with the way it can transform from savage performance car one minute to luxurious grand tourer the next, is downright remarkable.

Aston has said that the AMR is now the fastest model in its current series production range and, going off this test, it’s easily one of the best, too.
