Meet The Valkyrie AMR Pro, Aston Martin's New Hypercar

Carprices Team / Posted On - August 23rd 2022
The Aston Martin Valkyrie isn't launched yet, and the company has already started working on a more hardcore version of the much-anticipated hypercar. The Valkyrie AMR Pro is a faster, lighter, and track exclusive race car meant to be driven at LMP1 endurance races. Designed and developed in collaboration with Red Bull Advanced Technologies, the track-only Valkyrie is to be produced in limited numbers.
At the unveiling of the futuristic Valkyrie hypercar in mid-2017, Aston Martin confirmed that it was indeed working on a faster model designed specifically for track use. On Thursday, the company teased the new Valkyrie AMR Pro ahead of its launch and has created what appears to be possibly an even more insane of a car than the Valkyrie promises to be.
Diving right into the details, the Valkyrie AMR Pro is expected to surpass the near 1:1 power to weight ratio of the standard car. Calling the Valkyrie standard is a gross understatement since the car weighs 1030 kg and puts down 1130 hp from its hybrid Cosworth 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 petrol engine. The AMR Pro will get the same engine in a higher state of tune. More power is never a bad thing, right? Although it shied away from revealing exact specifications, Aston Martin predicts the race car will top out at 360 kph, but top speed isn't exactly the car's focus.
The Valkyrie AMR Pro gets a larger front splitter and rear spoiler and has a wider track than the road-legal version. To achieve the 1000 kg curb weight mark, the bodywork is composed of ultra-light carbon fiber, windshield and windows are made of polycarbonate, and the suspension has been upgraded to carbon fiber wishbone setup. The AMR Pro ditches the air conditioning and infotainment of the Valkyrie but instead gets lighter racing seats.
The party trick of the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro is not the engine, neither the weight savings and definitely not its rather seductive design. This car can generate at least its weight in downforce, with the possibility of more at higher speeds. Only open-wheel race cars were able to do that until now. The trick doesn't end here. The car can also pull up to 3 Gs of lateral acceleration in corners, hinting at the enormous amount of surface grip it can bring forth if required.
Aston Martin will only ever build twenty-five Valkyrie AMR Pro cars. All have already been sold, and deliveries are expected to begin in 2020.
