The 2019 Aston Martin Rapide AMR is a 4-Door Grand Tourer

Aston Martin reveals its latest car just in time for its title defense at the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race. Following its unveiling of the DB11 AMR, the British carmaker has now launched the 2019 Aston Martin Rapide AMR, a limited-run production version of the concept showcased at Geneva last year. Only 210 of these cars will be made.

Aston Martin boasts that the Rapide AMR (short for Aston Martin Racing) has changed very little compared to the show car. For starters, the engine remains to be a 6.0-liter V12 engine, albeit tweaked from the concept's 592 hp down to 580 hp. Combined with 630 Nm torque, the Rapide AMR can manage a top speed of 330 kph and launch from 0-100 in just 4.4 seconds. A new quad exhaust system ensures stepping on the gas results in the intimidating growl that the AMR badging is known for.

Aston's latest manages the aforementioned performance numbers with the help of 21-inch wheels—a first for the brand—equipped with ultra-high-performance Michelin Super Sports. Thermal management of the brakes is aided by the wheel's multi-spoke design, modified brake ducts, and dust shields. Carbon ceramic brakes come standard.

Better aerodynamics is achieved by a few improvements to the suspension (lowered by 10 mm.), adaptive damping system (retuned for a sportier feel), body kit (redesigned to reduce lift and achieve a neutral front-rear balance), and carbon-fiber hood (heat vents have been enlarged for better air flow).

The Rapide AMR will be offered in three different design schemes--Standard, Silhouette, and Signature, which carries the definitive AMR look thanks to its Stirling Green paint with Lime accents and stripes. Buyers will also have the ability to customize their car further via Q by Aston Martin, the brand's own personalization service.

The Aston Martin Rapide AMR will be available globally with the exception of China and Russia and is available from USD240,000 (nearly PHP13 million) in the US with first deliveries reaching buyers in the fourth quarter of 2018.
