Aston Martin Vantage AMR Unveiled, Just 300 Will Be Made

Power wise the V12 Aston Martin Vantage AMR comes with a 6.0 litre naturally aspirated engine that produces a massive 595 horsepower and the V8 is powered by a 4.7 litre V8 with 430 horsepower.

Painted in either white with orange graphics, black with blue, blue with red or silver with grey highlights, the AMR editions can also come in the firm's famous green and lime green accents.

Named after the Aston Martin Racing motorsport department, AMR aims to enhance Aston Martin's already impressive lineup with various performance upgrades as well as design and luxury treatments.

Both can be had with either a sequential automated-manual seven-speed gearbox, or optional six-speed manual for the V8, seven-speed for the V12. Hence, it is not surprising that the company has chosen Vantage model as the first AMR model to enter production. The Vantage AMR swansong model, named after Aston Martin Racing, is the motorsport arm's first road vehicle product.

For those who want to further customize their Vantage AMR, Aston Martin will be more than happy to provide them with extra goodies, such as a carbon fibre aerodynamic body kit for the coupe along with forged aluminum wheels and a titanium exhaust shaving off 14 kilograms compared to the Vantage V12's standard exhaust.
