  Aston Martin to revive legendary Superleggera badge for new DBS In an attempt to pay homage to the great Astons of old, the new top-rung sports car from Gaydon will be called the DBS Superleggera.Ironically, there are few words in the supercar lexicon that carry as much weight as Superleggera, a name that during its heyday graced the fenders of some of history's most beautiful and beloved cars such the Aston Martin DB4 and DB5. While the Superleggera style of construction may have been consigned to the annals of history, Aston Martin is ensuring that the name lives on with the next-generation DBS, dubbed the DBS Superleggera.

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 production version of the concept car displayed at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show will be limited to just 210 units.

What's New: Like the concept car displayed at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the 2019 Aston Martin Rapide AMR will retain the large and aggressive front grille, similar to the one found on the track-only Vantage AMR Pro. It will also feature circular daytime running lights, similar to the ones found on the recent Zagato models.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 Combines 592 HP With Manual Gearbox

  Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 Combines 592 HP With Manual Gearbox The "ultimate analog Vantage" serves as a proper send-off for the previous-gen model. When Aston Martin launched the supercharged V8 Vantage V600 back in 1998, it was the most powerful production car at the time. Two decades later, the “V600” is being brought back to life for a last hurrah of the previous-generation Vantage. Based on the V12 model, it’s billed as being the “ultimate analog Vantage” by offering a naturally aspirated 592 horsepower channeled to the road via a seven-speed manual gearbox.Also check out:2019 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 Teased; GT4 Also Coming© Motor1.

This go-faster AMR version comes to further boost the appeal of the grand tourer , which as well all know will eschew the combustion engine to go full electric for the RapidE due in 2019 as Aston Martin ’s very first EV.

When compared to the less powerful Rapide S, the Rapide AMR will also be fitted with additional aerodynamic bodywork consisting of carbon fiber front splitter, side sills, rear diffuser and trunk lid lip spoiler. Together, these components will help reduce lift while retaining a neutral balance of the Rapide AMR at high speeds. In order to save additional weight, Aston Martin Racing has replaced the aluminum hood on the Rapide AMR with a carbon fiber unit with large ventilation inserts.

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.

The wheels are wrapped with ultra-high performance Michelin Super Sport tires measuring 245/35 ZR21 up front and 295/30 ZR21 at the rear. The large, multispoke forged wheels are not only stiff but are also designed to aid with brake cooling. The Rapide AMR also utilizes an evolution of the cooling system found on the Vanquish S, with modified brake ducts and dust shields to further aid thermal management of the brakes. The Aston Martin Rapide AMR comes fitted with carbon ceramic brakes as standard. The front rotors measure in at 400 millimeters and are paired with six-piston calipers. The rear rotors measure in at 360 mm and are paired with four-piston calipers.

The Rapide AMR rides 10 mm lower when compared to the Rapide S, but it does retain the three-stage adaptive dampers. However, these adjustable dampers have been thoroughly re-engineered to make the car more agile, dynamic and focused. Much of the suspension tuning for the Rapide AMR has been completed at the AMR Performance Center at the Nurburgring.
