Two very special cars sit on the Aston Martin stand here at the Geneva Motor Show 2017. We took a closer look at what makes the Aston Martin Rapide and Vantage AMR so special!
The Rapide AMR is the first tier of AMR. This involves the enhancement of Aston Martin’s normal machinery with a comprehensive suite of power, chassis and styling upgrades. It features a 600 hp version of Aston Martin’s 6.0 litre V12 engine and a new quad exhaust system. Finished in Stirling Green with a lime green colour scheme, it is capable of 210 mph.
The Rapide AMR rides on new 21 inch alloy wheels with a new full height signature grille, front splitter, side sills, rear diffuser and aero flip on the rear decklid. Inside, lightweight carbon fibre front seats, Dark Knight Alcantara with Lime Green accents and carbon fibre waterfall, centre console and door casings make it a world away from any regular Rapide.
The Vantage AMR Pro is a completely different animal and is heavily influenced by Aston Martin Racing’s WEC winning V8 Vantage GTE. Development of all AMR Pro models will be led by Q by Aston Martin Advanced Operations.
The Vantage AMR Pro is powered by a 507 hp version of Aston Martin Racing’s GT4 race engine. It gets race-spec adjustable suspension, competition engine and transmission mounts. It also features Stirling Green exterior paintwork with lime green accents. It uses the same bonnet and rear wing as the World Endurance Championship winner.
