Four-Door Grand Tourer Transforms Into Four-Door Sports Cars

Posted on

n 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.

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.

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.
