Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro Is a Roaring V12-Powered Track Monster

Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro Is a Roaring V12-Powered Track Monster

Then you'll be needing this, the new Valkyrie AMR Pro version which nudges Aston's hypercar nearer to LMP1 auto spec.

Red Bull Technology's Chief Technical Officer, Adrian Newey, said: "While it is endowed with extraordinary performance, it has always been vitally important to me that the Valkyrie functions well as a true road vehicle, and that naturally comes with some constraints".

It's the track-only, even more focused derivative capable of laptimes 'to rival recent Formula One cars, ' according to Aston Martin.

Free of regulations surrounding road cars, the AMR Pro will feature a more powerful version of the purpose-built Cosworth V12 engine and will also have an upgraded aero kit that features much larger front and rear wings. The road auto will set new benchmarks for performance, engineering and technology - a hypercar in the truest sense - and with the track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro those limits will be pushed further still.

The Valkyrie AMR Pro is lighter than the roadgoing version too - through a ruthless option delete process.

Weight savings comes courtesy of ditching all the windows and replacing them with polycarbonate plastic, chucking out the heater and infotainment systems and replacing lots of stuff with the same thing, but made out of carbonfibre. Lighter polycarbonate windows and carbon fiber are used all around the vehicle.

AMR Pro models will come with the same slick Michelin racing tyres found on the current generation of top-tier Le Mans prototypes, says Auto Express, as well as F1-inspired carbon brakes. Aston estimates that the top speed of the Valkyrie AMR Pro is close to 250 miles per hour. These include polycarbonate windscreen (with heater elements) and side windows, a lighter construction of carbon fibre bodywork, new suspension uprights and carbon fibre wishbones, plus moulded race seats in place of the adjustable road vehicle items.

To make sure owners don't wipe themselves out when they get behind the wheel, they'll be taken through a driver development programme tailored to their abilities and experience, with access to the same facilities as Red Bull's F1 drivers, so they can go and play at AML's dedicated track days for the AMR Pro. This will include simulator time, on-track instruction and physical fitness programs.

This is the mighty Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro, and it wants to eat you alive.

Just 25 of the 6.5-litre V12 animals revealed in these designers' sketches will be built, with deliveries scheduled for 2020. When the auto debuts in 2020, all owners will be invited to special track events set up just for the model.
