As much as we love our classics, we all love new cars too. We especially love new cars when they come from the companies we love. Not all of the new cars that come out are available in all locations, and many of those cars are beyond the financial reach of mere mortals, but we want to know about them anyway. We want to know about them if only so we can drool and dream.
As Aston Martin returns to Le Mans to defend its 2017 victory at the iconic 24-hour race, so the latest car in the exciting new AMR stable has been unveiled. Following hot on the heels of the DB11 AMR, Aston Martin has revealed the limited edition Rapide AMR. This production version of the concept shown at Geneva last year is limited to just 210 cars. AMR stands for Aston Martin Racing and the brand draws a direct engineering and aesthetic link between the company’s successful race team and its road cars. As such the Rapide AMR is a sports car capable of comfortably transporting a team of race drivers to a circuit on the other side of a continent and then tackling the track when they get there.
