What the Aston Martin is able to do
The Aston Martin Racing (AMR) gave the Aston Martin DB11 such an outstanding fresh rebooted that there are still not as many on the roads today. It is exceptional, thorough, and of course nicely gifted in all ways.
The tweak done on this car has some benign backstory and it would be mean not to share. Aston Martin DB11 V8 engine which is the predecessor of the current machine brought no less than 503-horsepower, 498-lb-ft 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine.
In the words of Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer, they sold a massive DB11s in only 18 months. And with that, the DB11 left the stage and in came the exquisite DB11 AMR.
In the AMR version, power increases to 630 horses. Top speed also rose from a flat 200 mph to a crazy 208. Somehow, this is explainable. On one hand, this car is meant to be a heralded tourer, which essentially translates to a big car that’s comfortable, fast and deliciously gorgeous.
In other words, such cars are meant to make heads turn and while still being able to do lots of miles without much effort or complaint. It is therefore pretty much understandable why Aston Martin gave this car such an overwhelming change in engine and suspension. There was the promise to hit a certain spot and quite honestly the prestigious automaker just did a fine job on this one.
