Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro Is a Roaring V12-Powered Track Monster

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.

Newey, who is brainchild of the Valkyrie project and was responsible for performance-related development of the auto, said: "While it is endowed with extraordinary performance, it has always been vitally important to me that the Valkyrie functions well as a true road vehicle, and that naturally comes with some constraints".

There's only one thing likely to match a Valkyrie AMR Pro on a trackday, and that's another Valkyrie AMR Pro, although given the auto is accompanied by a full driving training programme and correspondingly exclusive track events, that's probably the reality for any owner.

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. These tires are made to the specification of those used by LMP1 cars in the World Endurance Championship. Moreover, the braking system now features full carbon-carbon racing brakes, and the Rimac-sourced energy recovery system has been re-programmed.

For the AMR Pro, Aston will remove the road car's heater and infotainment screens, replace all the glass with polycarbonate, and install carbon-fiber wishbones, lighter suspension uprights, lighter bodywork, and fixed racing seats.

The Valkyrie AMR Pro is lighter than the roadgoing version too - through a ruthless option delete process. You know, the top class from Le Mans that became too expensive to go on in its current form.

The owners of the exclusive auto will receive an extra perk for the huge outlay - access to the same training facilities as Red Bull's F1 drivers, including simulator time, on-track tuition and fitness regimes. "The AMR also gets shod with 18" Michelin racing slicks, covering carbon-ceramic brakes to F1 spec. This includes time in the simulator and professional on-track tuition, plus programmes to improve their physical fitness.

Only 25 examples of the AMR Pro Valkyrie will be built, but don't think you can get your hands on one - they've all been sold. When the vehicle debuts in 2020, all owners will be invited to special track events set up just for the model.

All 25 cars have already been spoken for. Womp womp. Deliveries start in 2020, so you'll have to wait at least that long to fork over your firstborn child if a used one comes up for sale.
