Aston Martin has lifted the silk on its new DB11 flagship, the AMR, which replaces the outgoing V12 Coupe and sports a significant power boost, refined interior and exterior styling.
Australian pricing has been confirmed at $428,000 (before on-road costs) with local on-sale scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year.
The DB11 AMR (Aston Martin Racing) produces an extra 23kW over the regular V12 Coupe variant it replaces, with the carryover twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12 now making 470kW at 6500rpm and 700Nm at 1500rpm.
With the added grunt, the new performance coupe can run the 0-100km/h dash in a claimed 3.7 seconds, 0.2 seconds faster than before.
Meanwhile, top speed has increased to 334km/h, up 13km/h over the outgoing DB11 Coupe.
Helping achieve these figures, the range-topping grand-tourer has been treated to a new shift calibration for its eight-speed ZF torque-convertor automatic transmission, and a new exhaust set-up that enhances sound when Sport driving mode is engaged.
From the outside, the AMR is distinguished by its darkened headlight surrounds, unique front grille and exhaust tips, and smoked tail-lights, as well as gloss-black roof, side sills and front splitter.
Inside, monotone leather and Alcantara upholstery with lime highlights is standard, though customers can choose from three 'Designer Specifications' colour and trim combinations.
A range of carbon-fibre options will also be available including an engine cover, exhaust tips, a deployable bootlid spoiler and a sport steering wheel with paddle shifters.
Limited to 100 units globally, a DB11 AMR Signature Edition will also be on offer, which features a 'Stirling Green' and lime livery, a bespoke leather upholstery and extra carbon-fibre touches.
Aston Martin boss Andy Palmer suggested the new DB11 is more sports focused than its predecessor.
"Since its initial launch back in 2016, the DB11 range has matured rapidly and intelligently, selling close to 4,200 V12 examples in that period," he said.
"With the exceptional V8 Coupe and Volante, we felt the V12 could reveal more of its sporting potential while remaining the consummate GT."
The DB11 AMR was revealed at the opening of the recently-renovated Aston Martin Nurburgring Test Centre at the Norschelife circuit in Germany, which now goes by AMR Performance Centre.
