Extreme version of the Valkyrie weighs just 1000kg and boasts of 1115PS. Aston Martin stunned audiences at the Geneva Motor Show 2018 by unleashing the Valkyrie AMR PRO, an extreme version of the already extreme Valkyrie. The AMR PRO is a track-only version that packs a 6.5-litre V12 engine coupled to an F1-style Energy Recovery System that is capable of producing 1115PS. Amazingly, however, Aston Martin has managed to make the Valkyrie AMR PRO weigh just 1,000kg! This should give it a power-to-weight ratio of one-to-one that other supercars can only dream of.
Red Bull F1’s chief technical officer Adrian Newey, who helped develop the Valkyrie, says, “The Aston Martin Valkyrie road car draws extensively from the knowledge I have gained during my career in Formula One. But the AMR Pro version has allowed me to work beyond the constraints of road legality, or indeed practicality. We’ve told a few of its secrets, but by no means all. I will leave it to the public to ponder the lap time predictions. Suffice to say, they’re quite impressive.” And he’s right, ever since its unveiling, we’ve been doing nothing but arguing about how fast the AMR PRO could go around the Nurburgring. Our bet is on a sub-7 minute lap time. What do you say? Only 25 of these extreme track-only car will ever be produced and, quite naturally, all of them are sold out!
