Valkyrie becomes an AMR Pro
ANOTHER BIG news from Gaydon this month was the unveil of a track-only version of Aston Martin’s first-ever hypercar and it is called the Valkyrie AMR Pro. The car has been developed in parallel with its road-going counterpart, the Valkyrie and is the brainchild of Adrian Newy—the most successful F1 designer in history. The new car is the result of Aston Martin’s collaboration with Red Bull Racing Technologies and AF Racing. With deliveries set for 2020, only 25 example of the Valkyrie AMR Pro will ever be made. Changes over the standard car’s exterior focus on aerodynamic efficiency for greater downforce. Weight savings were a crucial element and the AMR Pro rids the road-going car of extraneous items and the use of ultralightweight track-specific components. The Cosworth-built 6.5-litre V12 has been fettled with for more power and torque, with figures to be revealed in due time.
