With the added grunt, the new performance coupe can run the 0-100km/h dash in a claimed 3.7 seconds, 0.2 seconds faster than before.

Aston Martin recently announced plans to resurrect the DBS moniker on the new DBS Superleggera and spy photographers have caught the Vanquish Volante successor making a pit stop in Germany.

- The power output has increased to 630bhp while the torque remains the same at 700Nm, top speed is now 334kmph.

Aston Martin has been tight-lipped about performance specifications but the model is expected to feature a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 that produces around 700 hp (522 kW / 710 PS).

AMR - inspired by Aston Martin Racing's successful endurance programme - is the name given to high-performance, attitudinous model derivatives; the DB11 follows in the tyre-tracks of the Vantage AMR and AMR Pro to become the fastest model in Aston Martin's range. The ZF-derived eight-speed automatic transmission has undergone a revised shift calibration.

Visual version DB11 AMR can be distinguished from the base DB11 black radiator grille and darkened optics. Apart from that, the exhaust note of the DB11 AMR is now louder for an imposing character of Aston's flagship. All the chrome seen on the standard vehicle has been replaced with monochrome trims along with smoked headlights and tail lights to make the DB11 look more sinister. Meanwhile, the headlight and front grill surrounds, exhaust tips and roof are painted monochrome to achieve a dark theme for the DB11.

Sporting credentials such as a flat-bottomed steering wheel, contrast colour brake callipers, dual exhausts and racing seats all feature in the vehicle.

Strictly limited to 100 units worldwide, the AMR Signature Edition is priced at £201,995.

With lots of carbon fibre detailing on the exterior, the inside is equally striking, with Dark Knight leather and lime detailing, plus Satin Dark Chrome switchgear and Satin Carbon Fibre trim.

Inside, dark leather and alcantara complete the menacing look, with lime green finishing featuring on the central console. Only 100 examples of the Signature Edition will be built by the company.
