2019 ASTON MARTIN DB11 AMR
ON SALE: Now
BASE PRICE: $241,000
Tuning divisions such as Mercedes-AMG, BMW M, and Audi Sport are big business, so it came as little surprise when Aston Martin announced it was getting into the game with its new AMR (Aston Martin Racing) subbrand. AMR started with the Rapide AMR, which got a 40-hp bump and a 210-mph top speed. The latest addition is the DB11 AMR, which gets a 30-hp increase and a torque peak that runs right to the redline, shortening the 0-60 run by 0.2 second (down to 3.5) and increasing top speed to 208 mph. Contributor Mike Whiteley just got done driving a DB11 AMR Signature Edition and had this to say: “The DB11
AMR is smooth and feels at home chewing through mileage on the autobahn, but with the flick of a switch, it can demolish back roads with some tailout action if you see fit.” Aston Martin even has a track-only AMR Pro version of the Valkyrie in the works, reportedly with 1,300 horsepower.
