Auto Overload over the last year has shown what can happen when a multiple World Championship Formula 1 racing team partners with an OE manufacturer. What happens is the Aston Martin Valkyrie. Aston Martin recently put their company back on the Formula 1 map by partnering with Red Bull Racing after being absent from Formula 1 for roughly a half century.
The Valkyrie is a hypercar that creates 1,000 horsepower with a weight of 1,000 kilograms or roughly 2,200 lbs. But, the Geneva Motor Show started this past Monday and from what was debuted, it looks like the two companies needed more prior to any customers taking delivery of a Valkyrie, Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin decided to make a complete track version of the Valkyrie, the Valkyrie AMR Pro. The AMR Pro has much more aggressive race inspired bodywork since the original Valkyrie wasn’t enough for us. The AMR Pro will have roughly 100-200 more horsepower.
We do not know why but the AMR Pro makes the original Valkrie boring. This is not the case the AMR Pro will only see the track here and their for the customers that are lucky enough to get their hands on this expensive toy. McLaren also debuted a full on track only car yesterday at the Geneva Motor Show that is also within the category on the AMR Pro, The Senna GTR Concept. These cars will only be offered to existing customers of the original limited edition “base” model.
No price has been stated by Aston Martin for what the Valkyrie AMR Pro will cost but they did say that delivers will be starting in 2020.
