You may recall last year's Geneva show where, alongside the Valkyrie, Aston Martin launched its new 'AMR Pro' range of track-focussed, purist machines and announced plans for an 'AMR Line' of road-going performance flagships. Deliveries in the United States start this summer.

The 2019 Aston Martin DB11 AMR Signature Edition is the marque's latest top dog and starts at $241,000 if you want to take it for a spin.

The 5.2-liter V12 gets a 30-hp bump in the AMR over the standard issue DB11. The upgrade comes as Aston attempts to accentuate the difference between the V12 model and the recently introduced V8 DB11. Though it's a new variant, the DB11 AMR replaces the V-12-equipped DB11 and slots above the model with the AMG-sourced twin-turbo V-8. The result is a faster 0-62mph time of 3.7 seconds and an increased top speed of 208mph. According to Aston, the new exhaust is more vocal than the base vehicle and shows more character when you're in sport mode.

"Since its initial launch back in 2016 the DB11 range has matured rapidly and intelligently", said Aston Martin President & Chief Executive Officer Andy Palmer. "By applying a suite of carefully considered performance and styling enhancements, the DB11 AMR is both faster and more precise".

Visually, the AMR and V-12 versions of the DB11 might be hard to tell apart from a distance, but as you get closer you'll notice a number of revisions, starting with "a coordinated palette of exposed carbon fibre and gloss black detailing", both inside and out. These AMR edition cars will sport monochromatic black accents, with smoked taillamps, darkened headlight surrounds, and a dark front grille and exhaust pipes. A Rapide AMR is up next we are told.

Inside you'll find the monotone theme continuing with dark leather and alcantara upholstery offset by a lime central stripe and a sports steering wheel - a carbon fibre wheel and paddle set can also be optioned. The model can also be outfitted with a carbon fiber sport steering wheel and a custom luggage set that is created to match the vehicle. Limited to 100 cars worldwide, there will be a Stirling green and lime edition, with lime accents bleeding into the "dark knight" leather interior. We like how they went with a black dash and a mix between carbon and Satin Dark Chrome trim.

Aston Martin's engineers also refined the DB11 AMR's chassis to give it a greater sense of connection without harming the ride.
