Aston Martin reveals F1-rivalling track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro
17 November 2017, 01:49 | Gina Pena
Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro track car revealed
All this will result in a auto good for better than 400 km/h (250 mph) and for cornering G-forces of 3.3G.
The ValkyrieAMR Pro will also run 18-inch front wheels, which allows the fitment of LMP1-spec Michelin tires.
On face value that may seem surprising, given that the "standard" Valkyrie - if there could ever be such a thing - is yet to appear in its final form.
The Mercedes- AMG Project ONE plans to enter the same exclusive club sometime in the future, but the Aston Martin might get the jump on it. This AMR Pro variant is surely the Valkyrie that maximises the full potential within Newey's design.
Aston Martin has released teaser sketches of the insane Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro, which is a track-only version of the upcoming Valkyrie hypercar. The electric part of the hybrid system will remain unchanged, but Aston says that it has recalibrated the engine and made modifications to the emissions control systems (at least auto makers are being honest about it these days) to boost power and torque. The front and rear wing are both larger, while the active aerodynamic systems have been tailored to track driving.
The Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro Is The Track-Only Beast That Can Match F1 Lap Times
While it is endowed with extraordinary performance, it has always been vitally important to me that the Valkyrie functions well as a true road auto, and that naturally comes with some constraints.
As writes the European press, the representatives of Aston Martin, has posted the first images of Aston Martin AMR Pro Valkyrie.
It also includes new suspension uprights and carbon fiber wishbones that you really don't want to accidentally whack into a tire wall. It sounds like it'll be the wildest track-day vehicle out there.
"While the core elements of the road and track versions are shared, every aspect of the AMR Pro - aerodynamics, chassis, powertrain and weight - has been optimised to significantly extend the performance envelope", Newey said in a statement.
CEO Andy Palmer had previously mentioned the Valkyrie would see a 150-unit run capped off by a 25-unit track auto series, but in mid-November the automaker revealed how those track cars would be honed by the Red Bull racing team. "One that's propelling Aston Martin and 25 of our most passionate customers into a new and extraordinary realm". Those forces are so extreme, Aston Martin will offer owners access to Red Bull Racing's F1 driver training facilities, so they can better cope with the strain on their bodies. Delivery of the £2.5m hypercar, of which just 150 will be made, is expected to begin in early 2019.
