AMR is a new performance sub-brand within the Aston Martin range, in which two examples of this up-and-coming range were unveiled at the prestigious International Geneva Motor Show.
Aston Martin revealed the Vantage AMR Pro and Rapide AMR. Both cars were revealed as 'concepts', yet president and CEO of Aston Martin Dr. Andy Palmer has expressed how these two versions will go into production, due to the popularity of race-inspired Aston Martin models such as the Vantage GT8 and GT12 which these cars follow on from.
There will be two types of AMR class. 'AMR Line' examples will feature visual changes, as well as one or two part changes, whereas 'AMR Pro' cars will essentially be race cars - quite fitting, as AMR stands for Aston Martin Racing.
The Vantage AMR Pro is an extreme (track only) V8 Vantage - incidentally the most powerful V8 Vantage available with 507ps, thanks to an impressive competition race engine. The Vantage AMR Pro also features race-spec adjustable suspension and a whole host of carbon fibre, held together in a typical race car body, complete with prominent splitter, rear-wing and body extensions, giving the full race-car presence. The Vantage AMR Pro will be strictly limited to 7 cars and has the potential to be made road legal, for customers wanting to use their car on the road - with some alterations of course.
Alternatively, the Rapide AMR will be the world's fastest four-door, capable of an incredible 210mph - thanks to its 6.0-litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine. This model happens to be road-legal and is far less race car at first glance. Both cars unveiled at Geneva came in the signature Aston Martin Racing colourway of 'Sterling Green' with lime green accents, a colour made famous by Aston Martin race cars. The two cars are merely the start of this incredible new venture by Aston Martin, which is set to be rolled out to the other models in the Aston Martin range in due course.
