Aston Martin Rapide AMR Scooped As A 210 MPH Luxury Sedan

The Aston Martin Rapide is getting long-in-tooth but the company is trying to keep interest alive by introducing a high-performance AMR variant.

Previewed by a concept at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the Rapide will become the second model from the company’s new AMR sub-brand. It follows in the footsteps of the Vantage AMR which was introduced last summer.

As you can see in the latest spy photos, the Rapide AMR has been equipped with an aggressive body kit that includes a new front fascia with a sportier grille. The model has also a front splitter, aerodynamic side skirts, a ventilated hood and 21-inch alloy wheels.

The unique styling cues continue at the rear as designers installed a unique bumper, a rear spoiler and a conservative diffuser. The dual exhaust system on the prototype is only temporary as the company has already confirmed the production model will have a quad setup.

Aston has said the interior will be “equally breathtaking” as drivers can expect to find Alcantara upholstery and carbon fiber trim. The concept also suggested the production model will have carbon fiber front seats and Lime Green accents inside and out.

Like the concept, the road-going model will have a naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12 that produces 600 PS (591 hp / 441 kW). This is a significant increase over the 560 PS (552 hp / 411 kW) Rapide S and the company has previously said it will enable the Rapide AMR to be the “world’s fastest and most thrilling four-door, capable of 210 mph (337 km/h).”

Production will be limited to 210 units and Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer has already confirmed there will be an AMR version of every model in the Aston Martin range including the extreme Valkyrie.
