Geneva Motor Show news! The track-only Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro hypercar was unveiled. It is by Aston Martin Red Bull Racing’s Christian Horner and Adrian Newey. Propelled by a hybrid V12 powertrain that develops in excess of 1100 bhp. And tipping the scales at 1000 kg. Surely, it comfortably exceeds the magic 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. That’s to say more than 1 bhp to propel every kilogram of mass.
Armed with all-new aerodynamics that generate more than 1000 kg of downforce, the AMR Pro is still capable of hitting 225 mph (362 km/h). Of far greater benefit to lap time is the car’s ability to achieve lateral acceleration in excess of 3G – a figure far beyond that of any other car derived from a fully homologated road car.
ASTON MARTIN VALKYRIE AMR PRO The Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro is an extraordinary track-only evolution of the most extreme Aston Martin in history. Developed in parallel with the road car, but freed from the constraints of road use, the super machine sports increased power and torque combined with weight reductions and significantly increased downforce from the all-new aerodynamic package. Capable of achieving lap performance to rival recent Formula One cars, just 25 Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pros will be built. Deliveries are expected in 2020. All cars are sold.
