  • Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro track car revealed

As if that didn't sound extreme enough, Aston Martin chose to build a circuit-only version of the hypercar called Valkyrie AMR Pro.

As if the standard Valkyrie wasn't brisk enough.

A lot of this driving performance comes thanks to the overhauled aerodynamics.

The suspension of the new Aston Martin AMR Valkyrie Pro some metal elements which will be replaced with carbon, which will contribute to drastic weight reduction.

Mattel's First Hijab-Wearing Barbie Makes History
Mattel has unveiled the newest Barbie doll in its " Sheroes " collection, modeled after Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad. So I wanted to have athletic toned legs for sure. "I'm also really big into eyeliner", she said.


The result of this is a genuinely mind-blowing vehicle, one with a higher top speed (predicted to be close to 400km/h) and the ability to sustain cornering forces in excess of 3.3g with braking deceleration of more than 3.5g. Output for the car's Rimac Energy Recovery System will remain the same but its control systems will be reprogrammed for optimum track output. There's also increased power and torque, in case you needed it, and more weight reduction and other advanced tech. Or looked at in simple terms, the monstrous V12 no longer needs to meet stringent emissions regulations if it's only going to pound around a track.

Andy Palmer, Aston Martin CEO, added: "Valkyrie has always been about pushing the limits and redefining the possible". Lighter polycarbonate windows and carbon fiber are used all around the vehicle. To achieve that the track-exclusive monster gets much larger front and rear wing elements, together with revised active aerodynamic control strategies.

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. Maximum corning G for the hardcore Valkyrie is quoted at a phenomenal 3.3g. Today, the British designers have unveiled the design and some details on the new Aston Martin AMR Valkyrie Pro is designed for racing tracks. As tends to be the modern way, the firm notes that all of the AMR Pros are already sold. Despite the fact it originates from a fully homologated road auto, the Valkyrie AMR Pro is expected to achieve lap times on par with F1 or LMP1 cars. The AMR Pro model sheds weight and tweaks everything to provide performance that Red Bull claims will rival an Formula One auto or a top-class Le Mans prototype.

Inside, the Valkyrie's small attempts at luxury have been removed in the pursuit of faster lap times.
