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.
