Deliveries of the Aston Marin hypermodel Valkyrie are only starting by the end of the year, but the company has already introduced an extreme AMR pro version, which is made for driving only on tracks.
The car was announced as a concept at the Geneva Motor Show, and now we have a production version. Aston Martin claims that the car is faster on the Le Mans track than the model from the hypercar class and that it is close to the prototypes from the former LMP1 category.
The original design for the Valkyrie Le Mans hypercar program was used, which Aston Martin shut down in 2020 to focus on Formula 1. The original design is part of Adrian New, head of aerodynamics at the Red Bull team.
The Valkyrie AMR Pro differs significantly from the Valkyrie for ordinary roads. It has a unique chassis whose wheelbase has been extended by 38cm, it is 9.6cm wider at the front and 11.5cm at the rear.
There’s a new bodywork, and all the panels have been optimized to increase vertical force, significantly larger wings have been added back and forth, and a system that controls aerodynamics has been tuned differently to suit the track.
The car is significantly lighter, as the air conditioning and multimedia system have been eliminated, and some standard elements have been replaced by lighter, racing components, such as non-adjustable sports tubs and an exhaust system with minimal noise reduction.
Hybrid drive elements have also been removed, so power is only delivered by Cosworth’s 6.5-liter V12 engine, which produces around 1000hp. Tests are still ongoing, so detailed performances have not yet been released. The company announces, with reference to the circle on Le Mans, the power of 3G in the corners. Aston Martin F1 team drivers Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll are also helping to perform the tests.
