Limited production for Aston Martin Vantage AMR

Aston Martin Vantage AMR more money more motorsport vibes

Aston Martin launches AMR sub-brand

The pair represent road-biased but higher-performance versions of the popular sports vehicle siblings, with special materials, colours and even a range of dedicated accessories, because matching luggage, helmets and action cameras are apparently what Aston Martin buyers want. The team won both the drivers' and manufacturers' titles in the GTE Pro class of the FIA World Endurance Championship last season, leaving them as the defending champions this season. To transform such a masterpiece into a track auto might seem to be putting pearls before swine.

Aston Martin tweeted an image which shows tennis star Serena Williams posing next to it.

Bottas tops final Azerbaijan practice, Vettel suffers problems
Today we probably didn't get everything right but its part of the game. "We would have loved to have had more laps this morning. Accepting responsibility for his qualifying result, Vettel said, "In the end, I was alone and had no tow in the last sector".

In order to lower the barriers to entering motorsports, Aston-Martin have created a new range of cars aimed at all-out performance.

The AMR brand has two distinct tiers.

The regulation is meant to ensure banks have enough capital to weather losses and continue making loans to support the economy. Some of the central banks' interest rate setters now think it is time to raise its main interest rate.

Aston Martin boss Dr Andy Palmer said: "As our most agile and athletic road vehicle, and our long-time representative in the world of GT racing, [the Vantage] is the flawless model with which to introduce the exciting AMR range". The secondary goal is to cultivate the the AMR Pro race cars. Aston Martin is planning to launch a number of AMR-branded models in the future.

However, Aston Martin has applied a power upgrade to its naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12, increasing its peak output by 30bhp to 595bhp. The latter has received 30 more horses than previous examples and it can be had with a seven-speed manual. Add the AMR titanium exhaust to the V12 and you'll save 14kg as well as making it sound even better and sharpening throttle response, says the company. A Union Jack-enameled badge is a no-cost option. To save on weight, some of the interior pleasantries have been deleted. The alloy wheels are also fresh, with the same black hue but treated to orange center sections. Both engins are available in coupe or convertible bodies that will begin production this fall.

Pakistani soldiers to protect Chinese

The starting price is £97,995 but tick a few boxes on the options list and that price will soon rise. Thanks to a Twitter post we now have the Valkyrie posing alongside famous tennis superstar Serena Williams - and we were mesmerized by the fact that it's a different version compared to the one seen at the Swiss show.
