Aston Martin Valkyrie: Track version of vehicle designed by Adrian Newey

What the new owner will get for that money is a vehicle engineered by Aston Martin together with the Red Bull Racing ream and other racing outlets that can more than keep up with a LMP1-spec auto.

"The road vehicle will set new benchmarks for performance, engineering and technology - a hypercar in the truest sense - and with the track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro those limits will be pushed further still".

Aston Martin has released teaser sketches of the insane Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro, which is a track-only version of the upcoming Valkyrie hypercar. However, with the track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro we have the freedom to create an extreme evolution that makes no such concessions.

The 6.5-litre naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12, built by Cosworth, has been tweaked via calibration of the engine unit and changes to the emissions control system. As tends to be the modern way, the firm notes that all of the AMR Pros are already sold.

Without the constraint of a road auto exhaust system, AMR was able to extract more power and torque from the Cosworth V12, in addition to recalibration work and a revised Rimac Energy Recovery System.

The Valkyrie AMR Pro also gets Formula One-inspired carbon brakes to bring its insane speeds to a halt. Carbon fiber will also be used to help it drop a few pounds and inside certain "luxury" items like the heater and infotainment system have been deleted.

Dr Andy Palmer, Aston Martin President and Chief Executive Officer, added; "Valkyrie has always been about pushing the limits and redefining the possible".

Top speed is predicted at 250 miles per hour (402 kph) with capacity to take cornering forces in excess of 3.3g and braking deceleration of more than 3.5g.

On the published images it is seen that the Aston Martin AMR Pro Valkyrie will be equipped with large spoilers front and back, the producer intends to apply a technology called "active aerodynamic control". The glass windscreen and side windows were swapped out for polycarbonate, the cabonfibre body was lightened, suspension wishbones are crafted from more carbonfibre and the adjustable seats are replaced with moulded race versions. It's a remarkable project. The programme includes time in the simulator and professional on-track tuition, plus fitness training.

Only 25 obscenely lucky rich dudes will get to own the most insane Aston Martin ever built for public consumption, and sadly, all of these have been spoken for already. Deliveries are expected in 2020 but it's too late to order one.
