Much has been written about the newest hypercar Aston Mart22n Valkyrie, developed with the participation of Adrian Newey, head of Red Bull Advanced Technologies (RBAT), the technology arm of the team from Milton Keynes ...
We also talked about the AMR Pro, its racing version, which was shown as a concept car during the days of the Geneva Motor Show in 2021. The Valkyrie racing car was originally intended for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but then its creators had to abandon this project.
But, since the regulations of any sports competition hold back the flight of engineering, it was decided to make a car that, in terms of its dynamic characteristics, did not fit into any rules and would be as close as possible to Formula 1.
The result was a real monster: AMR Pro has become more "lean", light, low, but at the same time its width has slightly increased.
Adrian Newey: “When the Aston Martin Valkyrie came out, we discussed the possibility of converting it into a race car that could compete for the overall victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. , including relocating the engine and gearbox, optimizing aerodynamics and increasing the wheelbase.
We were very interested in this project, and we made quite a lot of progress, but then, unfortunately, the program was scrapped.
that car is embodied in the AMR Pro, which is significantly different from the road version of the car - in fact, it is a Valkyrie pumped with steroids. sport prototypes of the LMP class. It will be interesting to see this car on the track, where it can fully demonstrate its potential. "
Christian Horner, Head of Red Bull Racing and Chief Executive Officer of Red Bull Technologies: "The Aston Martin Valkyrie is an outstanding development, developed from start to finish by Adrian Newey and Red Bull Advanced Technologies, aiming to push the boundaries and raise standards automotive industry to Formula 1.
AMR Pro is a continuation of the work we did with Valkyrie, initially preparing for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but now the project has become an example of what is possible achieve if you don't follow any rules.
