Aston Martin Rapide AMR revealed

Aston Martin Rapide AMR revealed – UPDATE

Aston Martin has revealed details of its latest AMR, or Aston Martin Racing model - this time based on the four-door Rapide.

The AMR-badged, four-door Rapide follows hot on the heels of the DB11 AMR (which we've driven in Germany), and is based on the concept shown at the Geneva International Motor Show in 2017, retaining the gaping front grille and boasting circular daytime running lights that reference recent Zagato models. For starters, the 5.9 litre naturally-aspirated V12 (the brand markets it as a 6.0 litre) gets larger inlet manifolds derived from the Vantage GT12 as well as new calibration for the engine and eight-speed Touchtronic III automatic gearbox. As a result, power is quoted at 595bhp - 53bhp up on the normal Rapide S - produced at a tingly 7000rpm. 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.

The auto comes with carbon ceramic brakes as standard with four-piston calipers and revised suspension. 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. The design is the same as was seen in the concept, with a complex pattern of delicate spokes. The new bonnet with large ventilation inserts is also made from carbon fibre to minimise weight. To further aid thermal management of the brakes, the Rapide AMR utilises an evolution of the cooling system on the Vanquish S, with modified brake ducts and dust shields.

Power gains aside, the Rapide AMR has also been made to be a more dynamic and agile vehicle in the corners.

It will go into production in a limited run of 210 cars.

Black Ops 4 was running at 160fps on PC at E3
With Call of Duty Black Ops 4 , Activision's DLC delivery mechanism is undergoing a big change. Yet when this confusion came to light, the Activision Support FAQ quickly changed its tune.

Three different design schemes will be available; the Standard, Silhouette and Signature. "With enhanced performance, sharper dynamics and more powerful design language, Aston Martin has taken Rapide to new and exciting extremes". The Silhouette gets a full-length contrasting stripe in China Grey or Clubsport White instead.

Meanwhile, the Signature scheme (pictured) teams Stirling Green exterior paint with Lime accents and a Lime stripe, which "draws the closest visual link to the Aston Martin Racing team".

Inside, you'll find a carbon-fibre centre console while the seats have been trimmed in Alcantara. Every vehicle has discrete AMR logos stitched into the seats in Galena Silver and each auto will come with a limited-edition AMR inspection plaque as well as AMR branding on the carbon sill plaques.

Prices for the new Aston Martin Rapide AMR is available in the United Kingdom priced from £194,950. First customer deliveries are in autumn.
