The Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro – the track-only evolution of the manufacturer’s spectacular hypercar – has wowed the crowds at the Geneva International Motor Show.
It is based on the Aston Martin Valkyrie road-car, of which just 150 are being built and all pre-sold – at a cost of up to £2.5million each.

Aston Martin said the AMR Pro version has performance capabilities that could measure up against a current Le Mans LMP1 prototype or Formula One car.
Aston Martin said: “Key to the car’s unprecedented track performance are its lightweight construction and high-downforce aerodynamics – a combination that will result in a car that weighs 1000kg, yet is capable of generating more than its own weight in downforce.”
This is helped aerodynamically by wider bodywork and much larger front and rear wing elements, together with revised active aerodynamic control tailored for the demands of track driving.
