Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro Is A Hybrid Track Beast With Over 1,100HP

You may find this hard to believe, given its hardcore nature, but the Aston Martin Valkyrie has become even more impressive with the AMR Pri track-only version.

Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in a world premiere, it’s the British brand’ss answer to the McLaren P1 GTR and Ferrari FXX K.

Just like its rivals, it uses a hybrid powertrain. In this case, it combines a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, sourced from Cosworth, with electric power. The whole assembly has yet to be detailed, but it’s said to produce in excess of 1,100 horsepower, combined.

Tipping the scale at 1,000kg (2,205lbs), the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro exceeds the 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. Still, despite being officially presented, the car manufacturer remains tight-lipped when it comes to its exact specs. Nevertheless, expect a top speed of 362km/h (225mph) and lateral acceleration abilities in excess of 3G.

In addition to the mechanical changes, the Valkyrie AMR Pro has aerodynamic updates as well, sporting a wider bodywork and lots of carbon fiber. The exhaust system is lighter, the suspension wishbones are made from carbon fiber and inside there are moulded race seats.

The infotainment screens, heater/de-mister blower, and others were removed to make sure that the track-only hypercar achieves its weight target, and there’s also a polycarbonate windscreen with heater elements and side windows made from the same material.

As it was already announced, Aston Martin will only make 25 units of the Valkyrie AMR Pro. Deliveries should commence in 2020, and all examples are already spoken for.
