Aston Martin presented a powerful coupe


Aston Martin is dropping its flagship DB11 V12 in favour of a more powerful race-inspired version of the auto, the new DB11 AMR grand tourer.

Premiere 630-horsepower coupe was held in the framework of the opening of the technical center AMR Performance Center at the Nurburgring.

The AMR is rated to launch from 0 to 60 in just 3.7 seconds, or 0.2 seconds faster than the V-12, and with a top speed of 208 miles per hour, it will not only become the fastest model in Aston's current line-up but, the British marque claims, one of the fastest GT models in the world.

Novartis CEO says agreement with Trump lawyer was mistake
The dinner was "in no way related" to Novartis's agreement with Essential Consultants , the company spokeswoman said. AT&T is trying to seal its $85B acquisition of Time Warner, a deal opposed by the Trump Administration.

The 5.2-liter V12 gets a 30-hp bump in the AMR over the standard issue DB11.

Not only does that ensure the hottest DB11 now has 127bhp of breathing space compared with the entry-level AMG V8-powered vehicle, it also provides the DB11 AMR with muscle to worry its archrivals, including the 626bhp Bentley Continental GT W12 and 621bhp V12 Mercedes-AMG S65.

Along the way, Aston Martin is promising a more engaging, vocal exhaust note. According to Aston, the new exhaust is more vocal than the base vehicle and shows more character when you're in sport mode.

Father of the bride, Anil Kapoor was in his element as he danced tirelessly to all his hit songs, reviving the Ram Lakhan time. Now that they are married, Anand took to his Instagram handle last night to share two adorable pictures with Sonam .

Outside, there's a new, more aggressive look, too. Chrome has also been swapped for monochrome, with dark surrounds on the headlights and smoked tail-lights. There are also 20-inch forged wheels borrowed from the new Vantage.

Alongside the regular trim options for the AMR, which now includes a new carbonfibre steering wheel, there are three so-called Designer Specifications available.

If you're interested in 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR Signature Edition, know that it's limited to 100 units worldwide and starts around $273,102 at today's exchange rates. This variant gets more carbonfibre detailing and an interior trimmed with Dark Knight leather and contrasting lime details. However, only 100 of these will be made. With the AMR, he added, "we felt the V12 could reveal more of its sporting potential, while remaining the consummate GT". The trickery doesn't end there as in normal driving modes the vehicle will sound and feel docile, however switching it to "Bond, go find the secret nuclear codes before its too late" SPORT mode is when all hell is said to break loose.
