Aston Martin’s 1K+HP Track-Focused Valkyrie Hypercar Is Speed Incarnate

Jun 28, 2021

Aston Martin originally unveiled its track-focused Valkyrie concept back in 2018, promising more power, more aero, and more performance componentry in a package weighing less than its street-legal sibling. Intended as an early glimpse at the British automaker’s 2021 Le Mans aspirations, it was almost beyond belief.

Unfortunately, financial difficulties forced Aston to cancel its WEC program, but the good news is that its efforts weren’t in vain. Not hardly, because it’s just unveiled the Valkyrie AMR Pro, and, if anything, it’s even better in its unregulated form. For starters, it’ll be driven by a naturally aspirated 6.5L Cosworth V12, expected to produce 1,000-plus horses and rev all the way to 11,000rpm. So, along with coming in significantly lighter without the hybrid drivetrain of the road-going car, it’ll also be far more powerful than any FIA-compliant competitor. What’s more, the AMR Pro will feature a crop of other weight-saving measures, including carbon bodywork, suspension, as well as Perspex windscreen and windows. And when you consider that it’ll generate twice the downforce of the standard Valkyrie, the result is a car that is truly beyond compare. Just 40 examples will be built, so suffice to say it won’t be cheap. Check it out below.
