Aston Martin has released its answer to the bolstered Mercedes Benz AMG sedan, and it’s the racing sedan we’ve always wanted from Aston Martin. The Aston Martin Rapide AMR is decked – inside and out – with luxury and performance features that give other sedans a run for their money.
Aston Martin has historically been known for luxury and speed – but this new model pushes the latter to another level. The AMR in this Rapide-upgrade’s title stands for Aston Martin Racing, and with 580 Horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque produced by a 6.0-liter V12 engine, the Rapide is worthy of the racetrack. A top speed of 205 mph and 0-60 in a 4.2 second time practically begs to be opened up. A new aerodynamic body kit and lowered suspension also thrust the AMR onward, and upgraded brakes accommodate the increase in momentum. Alcantara seats in the cabin and carbon fiber console bearing the AMR logos complete the race car aesthetic. All you need to do is climb in, and suit up. Only 210 are being made, however, so you’d better act fast.
