Aston Martins nieuwe vlaggenschip: de DB11 AMR (639 pk)

Hier een nieuwtje dat het afgelopen weekend even ondersneeuwde in alle racerij: Aston Martin heeft zeer onverwacht een nieuwe top-of-the-line coupé gepresenteerd. De DB11 is al na anderhalf jaar klaar, dit is zijn sterkere opvolger.

Bij Aston Martin houden ze zich niet zo aan de achtjaars-cyclus van een auto. Sommige modellen gaan meer dan een decennium mee, en anderen worden al binnen twee jaar opgefrist. De 608 pk sterke DB11 (rijtest) hoort bij de laatste groep, want de opvolger van de legendarische DB9 wordt nu al vervangen door iets scherpers en krachtigers. 

De nieuwe DB11 AMR haalt 639 pk en 700 Nm uit dezelfde 5,2 liter V12 twin-turbo. Hierdoor wordt het gat met de DB11 V8 (510 pk) weer een stukje opgerekt, en kunnen klanten ongetwijfeld een paar euro's extra stukslaan op hun topcoupé. 0-100 gaat nu in 3,7s (was 3,9s) en de topsnelheid bedraagt 335 km/u.

Aston Martin - dat maar liefst 4.200 exemplaren van de originele DB11 wist te verkopen - presenteerde de auto dit weekend rond de 24 uur van de Nürburgring. Aston-baas Andy Palmer legt uit: "With the exceptional V8 Coupe and Volante we felt the V12 could reveal more of its sporting potential, while remaining the consummate GT. By applying a suite of carefully considered performance and styling enhancements the DB11 AMR is both faster - 208mph! - and more precise. It’s a combination that engages and cossets in equal measure to create a dynamic and seductive new flagship for the DB11 range, while consolidating the existing V12-powered DB11s as future collectibles”.

De DB11 AMR heeft ook al een prijs: £174.995 in het VK en €218.595 in Duitsland. Reken met al onze belastingen dus maar op een tonnetje op drie. We zijn benieuwd wanneer we Max Verstappen voor het eerst in een DB11 AMR-werkbolide kunnen spotten.
