Pro Valkyrie

Now, we’ve heard of the recent string of successes that the Aston Martin Valkyrie has been achieving. Xoxo this and xoxo that. Before you know it, that car is gonna beat the Chiron or even the 2020 Roadster before it even went into production.

And then Aston Martin decided it wanted an even more insane version of the car. It’ll be called the Aston Martin Valkyire AMR Pro and it’s one hell of a machine!

Given an in-house code of AM-RB 001 or Nebula, the car is a collaboration between Aston Martin and Formula One racing team Red Bull Racing as a cross between an F1 car and a road-legal track car.

It will have a 6.5L naturally-aspirated V-12 with an output of 1,130 horsepower. This is strange for a hybrid sports car because, even though it has electric motors, it isn’t designed to go into electric mode. Instead, it follows F1 philosophy of ustilizing a KERS – Kinetic Energy Recovery System – system to increase speed for short bursts during straight line overtakes.

There will be two versions of the car, a road-legal version, with a top speed of 225 miles per hour and an even more insane version of an already insane car, the track only version. Remember the AMR Pro? That’s the track-only variant. It’ll bring the car up to 250 miles per hour or faster if you go downhill.

Sadly, not everyone can enjoy this beauty. With the road legal version only limited to 150 units and priced at a simply staggering $3.2 Million each, you’d best just buy a 1:18 scale toy replica.

Oh, and the AMR Pro will be limited to only 25 cars. You can bet that it’ll cost more than three-point- two million dollars asking price of the base model.

But, hey. For that, you get to race against any car without those pesky passengers to bother you.
