In 2019 the British automaker Aston Martin In conjunction with Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Multimatic, they worked on the design of the Aston Martin Valkyrie, a vehicle destined to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in the new Hyper Auto class.
Now in 2021, that Hyper Car serves as the foundation for the radical new Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro.
Aston Martin explains that while the original concept, seen at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, had the goal of achieving maximum road legal performance, the new Valkyrie AMR Pro benefits from the pure and optimized chassis used in the car developed for Le Mans, in addition to the aerodynamics and the propulsion system.
The AMR Pro now features capabilities that surpass that racing vehicle, as it is precisely freed from the limitations imposed by race regulations.
This hypercar uses a unique version of the Valkyrie chassis, with 380mm longer at the wheelbase and 96mm wider at the front, plus 115mm at the rear.
The new Valkyrie AMR Pro features an aggressive aerodynamic package that adds an additional 266mm of length and thanks to how the underbody and wing were designed, allowing it to dominate the airflow, it generates extraordinary levels of downforce.
As for the engine, the Valkyrie AMR Pro uses a modified version of the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 built by Cosworth.
According to the British firm, the performance of the new Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro will be close to the performance of a Formula One vehicle.
Although they did not offer many more details on the specifications and performance, the brand indicates that it will release details only towards the end of this 2021,
The Valkyrie AMR Pro track tests will begin very soon and those who will participate from the beginning will be the drivers of the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team.
The total production of the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro will be 40 vehicles plus two prototypes and the first cars will be ready in the last quarter of this 2021.
Speaking about the new hypercar Aston Martin CEO Tobias Moers said: “The entire Aston Martin Valkyrie program has been an extraordinary engineering adventure. As an expression of the passion and expertise that can be found within Aston Martin and its closest technical partners, the Valkyrie AMR Pro is an unrivaled project, a true ‘no rules’ track-only version. The Valkyrie AMR Pro is a testament to Aston Martin’s commitment to pure performance and this performance DNA will be evident in our future product portfolio. Nothing else looks like it, nothing else sounds like this, and I’m absolutely sure nothing will drive like this!“
