Aston Martin has revealed a new more powerful version of their Rapide, the Aston Martin Rapide AMR, which gets a number of upgrades over the standard car.
The new Aston Martin Rapide AMR comes with 595 horsepower and it comes with a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of 4.2 seconds.
AMR stands for Aston Martin Racing and the brand draws a direct engineering and aesthetic link between the company’s successful race team and its road cars. As such the Rapide AMR is a sports car capable of comfortably transporting a team of race drivers to a circuit on the other side of a continent and then tackling the track when they get there.
Aston Martin President & Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer, commented: ‘AMR takes technology and inspiration from our motorsport programme to amplify the sporting prowess in our road cars which is clear to see in the Rapide AMR, Aston Martin’s most extreme, 4-door sports car. With enhanced performance, sharper dynamics and more powerful design language, Aston Martin has taken Rapide to new and exciting extremes.”
