Introducing the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro; A supercar that can be used on a racetrack

 The Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro has been introduced as a track-specific model, and Aston Martin claims that the car can complete a 24-hour Le Mans race in less than 3 minutes and 20 seconds.


Aston Martin, in collaboration with Red Bull and Multimatic, had previously planned to design a race car for the new endurance racing class based on the Valkyrie model, but this collaboration did not materialize.

Nevertheless, the Valkyrie AMR Pro continues the same path that Aston Martin has taken on its own.


Aston Martin's new CEO Tobias Morse says of the project:

The Valkyrie AMR Pro is an ambitious project, and we plan to use the DNA of this model in the company's future products.

Adrian Novi, the legendary engineer and designer of the Red Bull team that designed the original model, also announced that the Valkyrie AMR Pro is a special project and its performance is at a very high level and can be considered as the size of LMP1 racing cars. .

Because this model is not going to participate in any of the car racing series. No need for strict rules. As a result, Aston Martin designers have increased the wheelbase by about 380 mm.


Also in the front and rear of the chassis we see an increase in length of 96 and 115 mm, respectively.

In addition, a special aerodynamic kit has been added to the car, which alone adds 260 mm to the length of the car. As a result, these changes produce about twice as much downward force as the urban model. It can also withstand lateral acceleration of more than 3G.


The Valkyrie AMR Pro is powered by a Caseworth 6.5-liter V12 engine, and the hybrid system part used in the city model has been completely removed.

The maximum engine speed is 11,000 rpm and the maximum engine power is more than 1,000 horsepower.

Extensive use of carbon fiber has been made to lighten this supercar, so that the spokes of the car's suspension system are also made of carbon. The front and side windows are also made of Perspex, which reduces weight as much as possible.

Endurance races use a new generation of cars, the LMDH class called Hypercars, and Porsche, Ferrari, Toyota, etc. are expected to participate in this class.

Aston Martin will offer only 40 of these supercars and is scheduled to begin production by the end of this year.

The final test schedule will be provided by the current drivers of the Aston Martin Formula 1 team, Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel.

Aston Martin is set to begin delivering the city model soon.
