Aston Martin Vantage AMR: production models shown

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 folks from Gaydon will give buyers the option of getting the Vantage AMR with one of the following exterior two-tone schemes: Scintilla Silver with Grey, Ultramarine Black with Blue, Stratus White with Orange, and Zaffre Blue with Red.

Both can be had with either a sequential automated-manual seven-speed gearbox, or optional six-speed manual for the V8, seven-speed for the V12. Hence, it was deemed to be the first to undergo production of AMR.

Aston Martin has announced production of the first model from its new performance division, AMR, which was announced at the Geneva motor show. Inside, the Vantage AMR gets a high-quality makeover with extensive use of leather, Alcantara and carbon fibre.

The Aston Martin Vantage AMR is a series production limited-edition model and so it sits at the entry point of the range. The Vantage AMR has a sharpened looks, vivid performance, and vibrant character.

Aston Martin's chief executive Andy Palmer said: "The Vantage has been an incredible success for Aston Martin, both in V8 and V12 forms".

The Aston Martin Vantage AMR accentuates the sporting prowess of the British brand's road cars. It takes inspiration from Aston Martin Racing's participation in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

Each interior scheme has been carefully chosen to compliment the exterior colors. The V12 also gets 10-spook lightweight alloys while the V8 has to make due with a regular 5-spoke design.

"As our most agile and athletic road auto, and our long-time representative in the world of GT racing, it is the flawless model with which to introduce the exciting AMR range". Produced in partnership with Aston Martin Racing, the extensive aerodynamic package for coupe models is constructed from carbon fibre and features front splitter and dive planes, plus side sills and a fixed rear spoiler.

In the United Kingdom, the Aston Martin Vantage AMR will have a starting price of £97,995, or the equivalent of around $125,000, with Aston aiming to start delivering cars by Q4 2017. They will cost from £97,995 and deliveries will start late this year.
