The Aston Martin DB11 AMR has been revealed, serving as the new flagship of the British GT's line-up.

Launched at the opening of the company's new performance centre at the Nurburgring, the DB11 AMR features an array of upgrades inside and out for a more "vivid driving experience".

Key upgrades include a more powerful 470kW/700Nm 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 (up 23kW), a new shift calibration for the eight-speed automatic transmission, a "more vocal" exhaust system, carbon-fibre and darkened exterior highlights, leather and Alcantara upholstery, and a sports leather steering wheel.

With the extra grunt, the DB11 AMR now sprints from 0-100km/h in just 3.7 seconds (down 0.2 seconds), on its way to a top speed of 334km/h (up 12km/h).

In addition to the standard colour and trim offerings, the DB11 AMR is available in three Designer Specifications, along with a special AMR Signature Edition (pictured).

The Signature Edition is limited to just 100 units globally, and gets exclusive appointments like more "extensive" carbon-fibre detailing for the exterior, a Stirling Green and Lime livery, Dark Knight leather and Lime interior trim, as well as Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fibre veneer.

Aston Martin is also offering a range of race-inspired accessories and options for the DB11 AMR, including a carbon-fibre engine cover, exhaust tips and spoiler, carbon-fibre sports steering wheel and paddle shifters, tailored luggage sets matched to the vehicle's specification, different alloy wheels, and various colour and trim alternatives.
