Extensive use of carbon fibre detailing on the exterior provide the flawless finishing touches. Race-spec adjustable suspension, competition engine and transmission mounts and new rear centre lock wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Cup 2 tyres, the Vantage AMR Pro promises inspirational handling precision and exceptional levels of grip and traction. Powered by a 507PS development of Aston Martin Racing's GT4 race engine, the Vantage AMR Pro is the most powerful V8 Vantage ever.

The cabin of the new Rapide AMR boasts a similar kind of motorsport flair, starting with lightweight carbon fiber front bucket seats trimmed in Dark Knight Alcantara also with lime-green accents.

The first cars that are being confirmed to be made under this label will be Rapide AMR and Vantage AMR Pro concepts.

Aston says that AMR will eventually be extended to all other models in the future, as the brand is keen to affirm its reputation as a credible maker of supercars. "With the AMR brand we have the flawless platform to deliver both".
