Aston Martin unveiled Valkyrie AMR Pro – the ultimate hyper car based on Aston Martin Valkyrie race car created in 2019 by Aston Martin, Adrian Newey, Red Bull Advanced Technologies (RBAT) and engineering partner Multimatic to participate and win the 24H Le Mans race in the Hypercar class.
The Valkyrie AMR Pro is equipped with a unique version of the Valkyrie chassis 380mm longer in wheelbase and 96mm wider in track at the front; 115mm at the rear. It’s excellent aerodynamic package helps in adding additional 266mm in length. The downforce generated is twice that of the Valkyrie race car due to the enhanced underbody and overwing airflow contributing to quick lateral acceleration.
The Valkyrie AMR Pro is powered by a modified Cosworth 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine producing approximately 1000 hp. Weight saving is achieved by extensive usage of carbon fiber body components, carbon suspension wishbones and Perspex windscreen, side windows and removing battery-electric hybrid system.
Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Tobias Moers said: “The entire Aston Martin Valkyrie programme has been an extraordinary adventure in engineering. As an expression of the passion and expertise that can be found within Aston Martin and its closest technical partners, Valkyrie AMR Pro is a project beyond compare, a true ‘no rules’ track-only version. The Valkyrie AMR Pro is testament to Aston Martin’s commitment to pure performance and this performance DNA will be evident in our future product portfolio. Nothing else looks like it, nothing else sounds like it, and I am absolutely certain nothing else will drive like it!”
Aston Martin offers Valkyrie AMR Pro customers a unique opportunity to attend bespoke track day experience, hosted by Aston Martin at a selection of International FIA Circuits around the world. Customers will get track and pit lane access, support from the Aston Martin Valkyrie Instructor team, as well as FIA exclusive racewear and a VIP hosted dinner.
