Aston Martin reveals £3m Valkyrie AMR Pro

Ultra-exclusive gets racing-inspired bodywork and a more powerful V12 engine

Aston Martin has taken the wraps off its track-focused version of the forthcoming Valkyrie, reports Autocar

Called the AMR Pro, the hardcore hypercar is expected to boast a price tag of “above £3m” and will have “more power” than the standard road-going version, the magazine says. 

The British carmaker has yet to reveal performance figures for the AMR Pro, it continues, but it will be feature a tuned version of the road car’s bespoke naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine and is tipped to weigh less than 1,000kg. 

AMR Pro models will come with the same slick Michelin racing tyres found on the current generation of top-tier Le Mans prototypes, says Auto Express, as well as F1-inspired carbon brakes. 

To keep weight down, the cabin has been stripped of all luxuries, such as the infotainment system and heater, while the glass windscreen has been replaced with a lightweight “polycarbonate” version. 

Only a couple of design sketches for the AMR Pro have been released, but they suggest it will sport a large rear wing and a Le Mans-style fin down the centre of the car. 

Aston Martin plan to make 25 examples of the Valkyrie AMR Pro and 99 road-going versions, Evo reports.

The track-focused hypercar is set to arrive in 2020, continues the magazine, adding that like most ultra-exclusive cars, “all of the AMR Pros are already sold”.
