Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro Achieves Top Speed Near 250 miles per hour

Aston Martin announced Thursday that it will build a track-only version of its forthcoming Valkyrie hypercar, which it developed with the help of Red Bull Advanced Technologies.

"While it is endowed with extraordinary performance, it has always been vitally important to me that the Valkyrie functions well as a true road vehicle, and that naturally comes with some constraints", Newey said.

Aston says that this vehicle will offer a top speed of over 250 miles per hour, cornering grip exceeding 3.3g, and 3.5g of maximum braking force. Output for the car's Rimac Energy Recovery System will remain the same but its control systems will be reprogrammed for optimum track output.

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".

Rotten Tomatoes score for 'Justice League' leaks-and it's not great
With no Rotten Tomatoes score , it was tough to determine whether the trickle of poor early reviews is a fluke or a consensus. All the same, it looks like Justice League won't be a critical darling in the vein of Wonder Woman .

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is one of the most extreme road cars money can buy, thanks to its 1,000bhp V12 engine, super-light bodywork and F1-style downforce.

Aston hasn't released any Valkyrie AMR Pro specs, but we've heard the Valkyrie street auto will produce around 1130 hp and weigh just under 2300 lbs. The suspension sees some new components, and the road vehicle has been put on the strictest diet, losing weight in ways we didn't think possible.

It rides on smaller 18-inch wheels than the road-car version, but this enables it to use the same spec Michelin racing tires as LMP1 racers from the World Endurance Championship. Further savings come from the windscreen and side windows being made from a polycarbonate material.

New suspension uprights and carbonfibre wishbones save more mass, and the normal seat has been swapped for an ultra-lightweight pair of moulded race seats. The AMR Pro also features F1 inspired race-spec carbon-carbon brakes as their performance characteristics are perfectly suited to the extremes of track use. This includes time in the simulator and professional on-track tuition, plus programmes to improve their physical fitness. Today, the British designers have unveiled the design and some details on the new Aston Martin AMR Valkyrie Pro is designed for racing tracks. The auto itself will have its own dedicated track events for owners to show up and drive. Tough, they're sold out already. Womp womp. Deliveries start in 2020, so you'll have to wait at least that long to fork over your firstborn child if a used one comes up for sale.
