With the extra power the 0-100km/h sprint is reduced from 3.9 seconds to just 3.7 seconds, while its top speed of 335km/h makes it the fastest Aston in the current showroom.

Power from the DB11's 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 is up by 30hp to 640hp while torque remains unchanged at 516lb ft.

Inside, the black-and-carbon-fibre theme is carried on, with monotone leather and Alcantara upholstery offset by other weave details and the central lime stripe on the seats. The eight-speed automatic transmission has also been revised with new shift calibration, and the exhaust has been retuned to deliver a "more vocal" note when in Sport mode. Replacing the existing DB11 V12 - despite that only being launched in 2016 - and throwing 30 more horsepower into the mix, it gives the range a new, more potent flagship. In addition to the regular version, the manufacturer will offer a special edition called Aston Martin DB11 AMR Signature Edition.

The handling of DB11 AMR is claimed to have been refined by Aston Martin's skilled dynamics team, led by Chief Engineer Matt Becker.

While those odds at +800 are quite a bit longer than the four teams above them, this is still more than a bit eye-opening. If the Warriors can return to the NBA Finals for a fourth straight year, they could meet the Cavs once again .

Aston Martin has revealed the new DB11 AMR at the Nurburgring as part of the opening of Aston Martin's new AMR Performance Centre.

At the car's launch, Aston is offering a limited-edition version of the AMR with Stirling Green and lime livery that mimic the look of the division's racing models. But, if you're not down with AMR, a quick backgrounder for you: Early previous year, Aston launched the Vantage AMR Pro and the Rapide AMR, the first salvos in a full broadside of AMR models that will encompass the entire range. "With the exceptional V8 Coupe and Volante we felt the V12 could reveal more of its sporting potential, while remaining the consummate GT", said Andy Palmer, Aston Martin president and CEO, in a statement. The DB11 AMR has a top speed of 208 miles per hour. These include a carbon-fibre engine cover, exhaust tips and a deployable spoiler that add further detail to the model's exterior, while a new carbon-fibre sports steering wheel and paddeshifts bring that same AMR ethos within the cabin. Buyers can also specify a matching tailored luggage set. Featuring even more extensive carbon fibre detailing on the exterior, Dark Knight leather with Lime detailing, Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fibre trim, only 100 examples will be sold worldwide, priced at £26,000 more than the standard auto.

Pricing starts at £174,995 in Britain, with the limited edition model costing Pricing starts at £201,995.
