Aston pointed out that this AMR Pro Valkyrie was developed using a lot of knowledge the company has learned from the racing program, and even a little bit beyond, because AMR Pro does not have to meet Le Mans rules. The company also proposed an expected lap time of 3 minutes and 20 seconds on the track of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. for reference, Toyota’s The LMP racing car, which has no roots in production cars, ran a lap between 3:14 and 3:17. In addition to the impressive theoretical time, the racing reference gives us hope that one day the company can enter Valkyrie in the recently created supercar category.
Regardless of the Le Mans connection, the Valkyrie AMR Pro does have some major improvements compared to the standard car.Lighter chassis, additional carbon fiber, Such as for suspension control arms and plexiglass windows. Due to the more aggressive aerodynamic aids, the downforce generated by the Valkyrie has doubled, and the overall length of the vehicle has increased by 10.5 inches. With it, Aston claims that Valkyrie AMR Pro can generate as much turning force as 3G. The wheelbase has been extended by 15 inches, the front track has been extended by 3.8 inches, and the rear track has been extended by 4.5 inches.
As for the power system, Valkyrie AMR Pro will still use the 6.5-liter Cosworth V12 version, but unlike the standard version, AMR Pro will give up Motors and related partsThis is a measure to further reduce weight. The power will also drop slightly to 1,000 horsepower.Of course, that’s a lot of Power, the red line at 11,000 rpm will remain unchanged.
