2019 Aston Martin Rapide AMR: Four-Door Grand Tourer Transforms Into Four

Topline: On June 13, Aston Martin will unveil the limited edition 2019 Rapide AMR (Aston Martin Racing) at the historic 24 Hours of Le Mans following hot on the heels of the DB11 AMR.

The Full 20. Check out the details.

The naturally aspirated drivetrain in the Rapide AMR shares a lot of its characteristics and technologies with the Vantage GT 12 race car. It’s powered by a 6.0-liter V-12, but with larger inlet manifolds with tuned dual inlet runners combined with a new engine and transmission calibration, the engine now produces a healthy 580 horsepower at 7000 rpm and 465 pound-feet of torque. A new quad exhaust system makes the Rapide AMR sound as exotic as the AMR race cars. With the bump in the power output, Aston Martin engineers claim that the Rapide AMR will sprint to 60 mph from a standstill in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 205 mph.
