Aston Martin have revealed their most extreme car ever; a track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro.
Just 25 Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pros will be made and all have already been sold. Deliveries are expected in 2020.
All aerodynamic surfaces have been altered to create more downforce, these include larger front and rear wings.
Valkyrie AMR Pro will be powered by a naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre Cosworth V12 engine. Exact performance figures will be released at a later date.
The hypercar runs on smaller 18 inch wheels to allow Michelin racing tyres to be used, the same type used by LMP1 cars. The wheel house around F1 inspired race-spec carbon-carbon brakes which cope with the extremes of track use.
Parts like the heater/de-mister blower and infotainment screens have been removed to save weight. Further weight-saving parts like a polycarbonate windscreen and side windows, lighter carbon fibre bodywork, lighter exhaust system, new suspension uprights, carbon fibre wishbones and moulded race seats have been added.
All these tweaks help towards a top speed of nearly 250 mph. The AMR Pro will be able to sustain cornering forces in excess of 3.3g and braking deceleration of more than 3.5g. With this, it’s expected the AMR Pro can set lap times similar to LMP1 car.
With such speed and ability, all Valkyrie AMR Pro customers will have to take an intensive driver development programme. This includes work on a simulator, professional on-track tuition and programmes to improve their physical fitness.
Owners will then be able to attend dedicated track events at various tracks around the world.
