In order to save weight the bodywork uses a lighter construction of carbon fibre and the AMR Pro hits its 1000kg weight target.
Out goes the heater/de-mister blower and infotainment screens fitted to the road car and in comes new ultra-lightweight track-specific components such as a polycarbonate windscreen (with heater elements) and side windows, carbon fibre suspension wishbones, moulded race seats and a lighter exhaust system.
Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro can hit 225mph
Aston Martin said: “The single-minded pursuit of top speed has never been part of the Valkyrie ethos, yet even in high-downforce track configuration the AMR Pro is still capable of hitting 225mph.
“Of far greater benefit to lap time is the track-only Valkyrie’s ability to achieve lateral acceleration in excess of 3G – a figure far beyond that of any other car derived from a fully homologated road car.”
