Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro Is Geneva’s Bright Lime Star

Crowds have been stunned at the Geneva Motor Show following the world premiere of the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro.

Based around the already-insane road-going Valkyrie, the AMR Pro takes performance to new heights. If the claimed performance figures and times are achieved, it will be the fastest road car-based vehicle of its kind around a racetrack. Ever.

Powering the Valkyrie AMR Pro is a naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine sourced from Cosworth. Supplemented with an electric motor, grunt is expected to surpass 1100 hp but at this stage, no final figures have been confirmed.

It is a similar story concerning the vehicle’s overall weight. Aston Martin says it will tip the scales at roughly 1000 kg (2205 lbs) but has yet to give a final number for the production car. Either way, it will certainly exceed a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio and a top speed in the region of 362 km/h (225 mph) is expected.

In person at Geneva, the aerodynamic elements of the Valkyrie AMR Pro really catch the eye. In fact, a fully-grown person could probably fit in each of the tunnels present within the rear diffuser. There are also numerous exposed carbon fiber elements across the exterior. Extreme doesn’t even big to describe it.

      Ferrari would never allow the LaFerrari (or anything else in their current stable) to be tested against this–or another track rat like the AMG Project One or McLaren Senna.
