Aston Martin Rapide AMR unveiled

After the unveiling of the DB11 AMR, Aston Martin’s performance arm has unveiled the Aston Martin Rapide AMR. This would be the last version of the Rapide S before it goes off the shelves in 2020 and is replaced by Aston Martin’s first SUV the DBX.

The new Rapide AMR has “enhanced performance, sharper dynamics and a more powerful design.” Design wise, it has a grille similar to the Vantage AMR Pro and DRLs similar to the Zagato. Inside, there is a full-length carbon-fibre centre control and the seats are made with Alcanatara — both firsts for a Rapide. Each car gets AMR logos stitched into the seats and a limited-edition AMR plaque on the carbon sills.

It is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12 engine with 603HP of power and 630Nm of torque. It zooms to 100kmph from standstill in 4.2 seconds which is same as the standard Rapide S.
