Aston Martin AM-RB 001: call it Valkyrie

Featuring a 600PS version of Aston Martin's celebrated 6.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 and Aston Martin claims it is the world's fastest and most thrilling four-door, capable of 210MPH.

Does the latest DB11 get AMR first?

The Geneva Motor Show also brought an expansion of the Q by Aston Martin Collection (more tailor-made personalization options "akin to a secret menu" as Auto Guide put it) and an Art of Living F1 activation - so an epic week befitting the gods indeed!

The brand's only four-door model also gets unique 21-inch wheels and aerodynamic parts around the vehicle.

Speaking at the Geneva motor show, where the British brand confirmed its upcoming hypercar will be called Valkyrie, Aston Martin's chief creative officer Marek Reichman admitted the company has plans to take its customers further into Norse mythology with an expanded supercar family in the future.

How many of each model will be made?

The cabin of the new Rapide AMR boasts a similar kind of motorsport flair, starting with lightweight carbon fiber front bucket seats trimmed in Dark Knight Alcantara also with lime-green accents.

The other stalwart to go racy is the Vantage which, in AMR Pro form, comes with the 507hp engine from the GT4 race vehicle.

Aston says that AMR will eventually be extended to all other models in the future, as the brand is keen to affirm its reputation as a credible maker of supercars.

"As proof of that intent I'm incredibly excited to announce that we will be putting both the Vantage AMR Pro and Rapide AMR into production: the Vantage in an extremely limited series of no more than 7 cars; the Rapide as a run of only 210 cars".

It is likely to be the final instalment in a full overhaul of Aston's model line-up that started with the new DB11 launched last year and will be followed by the next-generation Mercedes-AMG-powered Vantage later this year, a new Vanquish coupe and DB11 Volante convertible in 2018 and then the first of three DBX crossover models planned. The multi-million baht hypercar is developed in conjunction with Red Bull Advanced Technologies and is slated to get nearly 1,000hp.
