1000-HP Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro gives You a fully F-1 race car driving sensation

A few days after a series of mysterious photos of the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar leaked on social media, the British manufacturer has officially unveiled the new and more impressive limited edition track-purposed hypercar named the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro is appeared without any electrification drivetrain, and is touted able to give the Formula 1 racing car driving sensation.

As we all know, Aston Martin initially launched its Valkyrie AMR Pro concept at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The British manufacturer noted that the AMR Pro was developed by utilizing its race car technology from the beginning, then being modified to fulfill specified requirements of the Le Mans racing event. Predicted, its record time is to reach 3 minutes 20 seconds if it running around at the Circuit de la Sarthe, the racing track used for the Le Mans 24-Hours.

After that, the British company made a series of comprehensive changes to make it a production version. But unfortunately, the AMR Pro program was canceled due to several crucial problems, such as financial problems, the postponement of the Le Mans competition, and many other problems related to the Covid-19 pandemic had occurred since early 2020.

The technological improvements is occured on the Valkyrie AMR Pro figure do have consequences for doing some major modifications by Aston Martin when compared to standard variant of Aston Martin Valkyrie. For example, the chassis was made lighter by adding more carbon fiber components to parts such as the carbon suspension wishbones, perspex windscreen and side windows.

Then the car's wheelbase was extended to 380 mm, so does the front track also made to be 96 mm wider, while the rear track became 115 wider compared to the standard variant. In fact, the new bolder aerodynamic package also adds 266 mm to its length dimension.

Furthermore, the carbon fiber front splitter is made more prominent, including the reshaped front wheel arch and fins to improve the driving aerodynamics. While the traditional rearview mirrors are still used, as is the rear wing including the wheel covers. The British car manufacturer claims that the Valkyrie AMR Pro is capable of producing more than twice the downforce, and lateral acceleration exceeding 3G when compared to its roads version.
The Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro limited edition will be available 40 units worldwide, plus two prototypes. (Picture from: CarandDriver)
In addition to wearing new bodywork, it turns out that the car also no longer relies on a hybrid system as was pinned on the roads version. Instead now, the Valkyrie AMG Pro relies on a 6.5 liter Naturally Aspirated V12 engine specially developed by Cosworth to produce up to 1,000 hp at 11,000 rpm and Aston Martin also claims that the car is capable of giving 'a track performance close to what the F-1 racing car can be done'.
Initially, only 25 units of the Valkyrie AMR Pro will be produced. But at the car's launching event some time ago, Aston Martin said that the car will be available 40 units, plus two prototypes. Unfortunately, the British manufacturer has not been disclosed the price yet and most likely will be sent to customers by the end of this year.
And for those of you who (afforded) to spent the money of yours to have an Aston Martin Valkyrie AMG Pro, will be invited to attend track day experiences hosted by Aston Martin at several circuits around the world. And the car's owners can participate as much as they want, including getting professional instruction, VIP racing meals, and exclusive FIA racing outfits. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOCAR | CARANDDRIVER ]
