Aston Martin has charmed to Geneva to launch a new line it calls AMR. According to the British automaker, this mark is designed to connect the company’s racecars and road cars. In this quest, the models will-power feature performance and design upgrades to provide some of the look and feel of those racecars. Every pattern in the Aston family will get an AMR iteration, but the company will start with the Rapide AMR and the Vantage AMR Pro.

The milder of the two, unsurprisingly, is the Rapide AMR. As with all to be to come AMRs, the car was developed by the main branch of Aston, while the AMR Pro cars will be developed by the Aston Martin Advanced Operations control. Among the Rapide’s updates is a massaged 6.0-liter V12 with a new exhaust that produces 592 horsepower. That motor will propel the car to a top speed of 210 mph.

The car also features a new front bumper with a truly tall grille. This look is shared with the Vantage AMR Pro, and it makes both cars look as allowing they’ve been told something astonishing, but it works. And, to be fair, the standard Rapide already had a leggy grille. The nose is accompanied by 21-inch wheels, a new front splitter, side skirts, backside spoiler, and rear diffuser. Inside there is plenty of dark gray Alcantara with gray and lime unripened highlights throughout. These match the Stirling Green and lime green cosmetics scheme on the outside of both cars. The cabin also has carbon fiber seats, center bundle, and center console.

The Vantage AMR Pro kicks everything up a few notches. It’s a track-only car, powered by a rendition of the V8 found in the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 race car. In the AMR Pro, it produces 500 horsepower. The apparatus sits beneath a hood that is the same as what Aston uses on the Men Endurance Championship cars. The rear wing is also taken from those racers. Other heart modifications include a new splitter, fenders, side skirts, and rear diffuser. The car has additional show upgrades in the form of an adjustable suspension, and center-lock wheels with Michelin Guide Cup 2 tires. Inside, the car has most of the same upgrades as the Rapide, but it also gets a cruise cage.

Aston didn’t release pricing, but it did say how many of each car will be built. Not surprisingly, there won’t be divers of each. The company will build 210 Rapide AMRs, but just 7 Vantage AMR Pros. So if you hunger for one, you’d better act fast. Otherwise you’ll have to wait for AMR versions of other Astons.
