Aston Martin has presented a special version of the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar, the ‘Valkyrie AMR Pro’. The original Valkyrie was created through a collaboration between Aston Martin, F1 designer Adrian Newey and Red Bull Advanced Technologies but has now been upgraded to nearly match the performance of an F1 car

Unveiled in 2018, the original Valkyrie was built to compete in the Hypercar category at the WEC at Le Mans. Those plans were later scrapped.

Now there’s the Valkyrie AMR Pro, a car that was developed and designed without restrictions in terms of all kinds of regulations, and it shows when you compare the version 002 with the original Valkyrie.

The hypercar is powered by a modified version of the Cosworth 6.5 liter V12 that is said to be 1,000 horsepower.

“Through weight-reducing measures, including the removal of the battery-powered hybrid system and an ultra-lightweight carbon bodywork, the Valyrie AMPR Pro is approaching the performance of an F1 car on a track,” the statement said.

“Nothing looks like that, nothing makes such a sound, and I’m sure nothing will drive like this car.”

Aston Martin F1 drivers Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll will help develop the Valkyrie AMR Pro.
