Aston Martin Rapide AMR revealed – UPDATE

New 595bhp Aston Martin Rapide AMR revealed

Alongside the new tyres, brakes and aerodynamics, the Rapide's suspension has also received considerable attention.

Talking about the model, Aston boss Andy Palmer said the model's "enhanced performance, sharper dynamics and more powerful design language... has taken Rapide to new and exciting extremes".

This is the new Aston Martin Rapide AMR, the fastest version of the four-door coupe you can buy. The production version of the Aston Martin Rapide AMR was shown at Geneva a year ago and is limited to only 210 cars. The carbon hood has large vents near each corner of the windshield, and there are circular LED running lights in the lower sections of the front fascia.

The friend said: " David and Victoria won't let this rock them and they will be spending more time together". On Friday, one rep for the couple said: 'There is no statement due for divorce.

The Rapide AMR's naturally aspirated 5,9-litre V12 has been massaged to deliver 444 kW and 630 N.m (up from the standard 410 kW and 620 N.m in the Rapide S), while the British brand says a new quad exhaust system ensures "a raucous sound befitting of the AMR badge". There are redesigned splitters, side sills, a rear diffuser and a boot lid lip spoiler.

Regardless of the region, however, all Rapide AMRs produce the same 630Nm of torque. The upgrade lets the sedan reach 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 4.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 205 mph (330 kph). In addition the adaptive dampers from the Rapide S have been reworked for the AMR, including a 10mm ride height drop, with extensive development work done on the Nordschleife. This is also the first Rapide with carbon ceramic brakes - 400mm at the front with six-piston calipers and 360mm at the rear with four pistons each - and the first Aston Martin of any kind with 21 inch wheels, which necessitated special Michelin Super Sport tyres, developed specifically for this auto.

There is a choice of thee different design schemes - Standard, Silhouette and Signature. Standard and Silhouette will be available with four colours, Mariana Blue, Scintilla Silver, Lightning Silver and Onyx Black - the standard scheme gets AMR lime accents.
