On this occasion, the Geneva motor show has brought us “the crème de la créme” of fair play and good taste; a novelty worthy of praise. AMR is the acronym of the new sub-brand of Aston Martin which is developed from the extensive experience gathered in the circuits, and now you can enjoy in the streets.
The great success obtained by Aston Martin in the competition in the past year, has been the inspiration for the brand… Its purpose is to create an extreme version of each one of the exclusive models which are offered. To begin, we will step to the first two protagonists; the Aston Martin Rapide AMR and the Aston Martin Vantage AMR Pro.
let’s Go by parts…
Aston Martin Rapide AMR. The “family” of the range Aston is prepared to obtain a product much more radical. Will hold the engine 6.0 L 12 cylinder arrangement in V, whose power is still to know. Will incorporate a multitude of aesthetic elements unpublished that remind us of the Aston Martin Vantage V8 N430 (presented at the Geneva motor show 2014).
The model incorporated a termination camouflaged of the competition. The Rapide AMR, will include elements such as a wheels specific design of 21 inches, details in lime green, along with a series of aerodynamic improvements designed to bring more efficient running.
The interior will change greatly with respect to the versions “conventional”. seats almost completely wrapped in alcantara, in contrast with embroidery of lines in lime green. In addition, it will incorporate the logo AMR on the headrest. The centre console exudes carbon fiber in each corner, extending out towards the rear passing through the centre tunnel.
Pro, that is the key
Aston Martin Vantage AMR Pro. This version will not be homolagada to exit by road. With this, it implies that we are talking about a version even more extreme and exclusive than the Rapide AMR. Mount an engine from the Aston Martin GT4. In particular, a 4.7 L 8 cylinders in V, which will develop a power 500CV.
In terms of modifications, it incorporates a suspension fully adjustable, roll cage, tires Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2,… The interior will be very similar to the one described for Rapide AMR in terms of materials, quality and design. As a curiosity, mount identical rear wing and hood, the V8 Vantage GTE.
If you want one of these extreme versions… you must give you hurry. The Vantage AMR Pro, is a series limited to only seven units. However, for the Rapide AMR will be 210 units that are placed on the market.
