Aston Martin’s management is considering the possibility of developing an extreme version of the supercar DBS Superleggera, which will receive a more powerful engine and a lightweight design. About this, with reference to its own source reports the publication of Motoring.

The new modification of DBS Superleggera should receive an AMR prefix in the name – this is the designation used on the former hardcore versions of the Vantage, Rapide and DB11 models.

According to preliminary data, more carbon parts are used in the design of the supercar, from which, in particular, the carcasses of the seats, the bonnet and the branch pipes of the exhaust system are used. The return of the 5.2-liter Biturbo unit V12 will increase to 750 horsepower. It is assumed that the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera AMR can accelerate from place to 100 km/h in less than three seconds, which will allow it to compete with the Ferrari 812 Superfast.

Standard Aston Martin DBS Superleggera was introduced in June. The coupe was equipped with a 12-cylinder twin-turbo 5.2-liter engine, developing 725 hp. and 858 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission ZF. Supercar can accelerate from place to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, and its maximum speed was 340 km per hour.
