Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro: 25 planned, all sold

Race like you never did in the new Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro image

Despite the fact it hasn't yet released the street-legal version of its Valkyrie hypercar, Aston Martin has already revealed it will build a track-only AMR Pro version as well, one able to keep pace with Formula One cars or top-class Le Mans prototypes.

In other words, this vehicle is all of our ridiculous engineering dreams come true. Not so much here. We'll still have to wait a while for the exact figures, though.

Details of the extra power and torque from the hypercar's naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre Cosworth V12 have not been revealed, but have been achieved by engine recalibration and a modification of the road car's emissions control systems. The electric part of the hybrid system will remain unchanged, but Aston says that it has recalibrated the engine and made modifications to the emissions control systems (at least vehicle makers are being honest about it these days) to boost power and torque.

Every single surface of the Valkyrie was reconsidered and optimized aerodynamically for the AMR Pro version, according to Red Bull.

Items that are just unnecessary weight for track use, such as the onboard infotainment screen and heater, have been stripped out or replaced with more lightweight versions. The side windows are also polycarbonate. The interior puts the driver in a racing bucket seat.

To that end, it's also been given Michelin racing tyres, made to the same specification as LMP1 World Endurance Championship cars.

Aston Martin claims the Valkyrie AMR Pro has been developed in parallel to the road auto, and has freed Newey and his design team from the obvious constraints when making a road-legal vehicle.

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.

Aston hasn't released any Valkyrie AMR Pro specs, but we've heard the Valkyrie street vehicle will produce around 1130 hp and weigh just under 2300 lbs. It will also rival F1 and LMP1 cars in track performance. First deliveries are expected in 2020.

Named the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro, the vehicle has a 6.5 litre Cosworth-built V12 engine and F1-inspired carbon brakes producing a deceleration of 3.5g.

Aston Martin is getting ready to introduce the track-only version of the Valkyrie.
