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.
