Building off an incredible USD$3.2 million base car, the Valkyrie, Aston Martin is pairing up with Red Bull Racing to put together what will no doubt be the world’s fastest road-legal production car. As an option on that car, owners can put in the AMR Track Performance package. Not just a dynamic upgrade, the AMR package will take the Valkyrie right to the edge, if not completely crossing the line, of evolving into the track-only Valkyrie.
There are a number of components for the package, including a more aggressive aerodynamic setup thanks to the separate front clamshell. Suspension components, including springs and sway bars, as well as lighter titanium braking components and carbon “aero discs” will contribute to knocking down drag. Inside, there’s not much room for playing around.
Access is gained through flap-style top-hinged doors. The seats consist of padded carbon shells. Legroom is at a premium, just as is dashboard space—though that is thanks to the four display screens (two of the screens are for the virtual mirror system). The irregularly shaped steering wheel houses the majority of the switchgear.
Early reports indicate that the Valkyrie will use a naturally aspirated 6.5-litre engine capable of 1000 horsepower. Rumours are that there will also be a hybrid system that will provide additional electric assistance. In short, the Aston Martin Valkyrie won’t just drive down the road, it will fly.
