Gaydon, Warwickshire - Imagine if Aston Martin built a stripped out, amped up, track-only version of its most extreme street-car, the Valkyrie AMR. Imagine no more.
Once you throw ‘street-legal’ out of the window, all things are possible - and a lot of them have come to fruition with this limited edition, slick-shod track day special.
Aston Martin, Red Bull designer Adrian Newey and build partner AF Racing gave the Valkyrie’s naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre Cosworth-built V12 a ‘significant’ power boost by fitting a lighter, free-flowing exhaust system with no catalyser or emissions-control restrictions, and completely recalibrating the ECU mapping to match.
The car’s Rimac energy recovery system is also physically unchanged but will be re-programmed.
