The Valkyrie AMR Pro is a work in progress, initiated by a concept unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
The first Aston Martin Valkyrie cars were handed over to buyers last November. This road-going hypercar with its wild looks and incredible power, however, does not match the ambitions of the British brand. This car is the Valkyrie AMR Pro, a version unveiled last July that recently debuted at the Bahrain racetrack.
Aston originally introduced the Valkyrie AMR Pro in 2018, but many areas of the development cycle have changed with the introduction of a track-only production version of the AMR Pro last July.
Aston Martin has combined the car’s immense power with a body made entirely of carbon fibre, the same material used for the suspension. The side windows and windscreen are made of plastic. The car was also lengthened, and the width of the front and rear track was increased. In terms of aerodynamics, just take a look at the graphics to see the differences compared to the road version. A huge front splitter, additional air intakes on the sides of the body, an anti-wing integrated with the central stabilizing ‘fin’, or an aggressive diffuser provide unprecedented downforce.
Aston plans to produce just 40 Valkyrie AMR Pro models. And when it completes deliveries, all vehicle owners will have the opportunity to take part in a special track training programme. It will start this autumn and introduce them to famous racetracks such as Yas Marina, Silverstone, Nürburgring and Circuit of the Americas. The company announces that “legendary drivers from the world of F1 and endurance racing” will help.

Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro engine:
Interestingly, we won’t find the hybrid drive known from the concept. In this car, the hybrid drivetrain is discarded in favour of Cosworth’s naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine. It doesn’t reach the same 1,100 hp (820 kW) that was promised for the hybrid, but the unit still has 1,000 hp (745 kW). Cosworth’s developers are calling it a ‘masterpiece of internal combustion engines’ and they’re probably right.
