Video: Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro made its debut at the 2023 Festival of Speed

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is one of the closest things to a race car for the road, which makes the Valkyrie AMR Pro the closest thing to a race far for, erm, track days. The original car was co-developed by Aston Martin and Adrian Newey of Red Bull Racing to create a downforce-laden road car unlike any other. The AMR Pro takes that theory and turns it up a notch, removing road legality in the process.

Something else that has been removed is the electrification of the Valkyrie’s hybrid set up. The result is actually reduction in power for this more hardcore model, the AMR Pro having 1,014PS (746kW) compared to the road car’s 1,176PS (865kW). But in every other way, performance is turned up. Straight away, the more aggressive aerodynamic package makes a statement. The original car was hardly shy of displaying its intent on its sleeve, and the AMR Pro adds a host of wings and splitters that are far from High Street-friendly.

The car has grown, too, the overall length up by 266mm thanks to the additional aero equipment and the front track swelled by 96mm, the rear by 115mm. The wheelbase has also increased by 380mm. This means the car can corner harder and faster, and Aston Martin even claims 3G under acceleration. Add in that V12 engine screaming away at a maximum of 11,100rpm and the AMR Pro driver is in for sensory overload, at least until they become accustomed to the car’s savage performance. If they ever do...

The damp conditions on the Hill today at the Goodwood Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard didn’t faze the Valkyrie AMR Pro or its driver. Watch as it appears glued to the bumpy, challenging surface, sucking the water off the tarmac and leaving it as a plume of spray in its wake as it goes, and indulge in the sound of that high-revving V12 as it does it. It’s a spine-tingling performance.
