Aston Martin reveals track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro hypercar

Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro track car revealed

Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro track car revealed

The track vehicle will also run smaller diameter wheels (18-inch front and rear) in order to fit Michelin racing slicks similar to those used by LMP1 cars.

Red Bull and Aston Martin are building a louder, faster, track-only model called the Valkyrie AMR Pro.

Valkyrie AMR Pro owners will be provided with access to an intensive driver development programme to ensure they can handle the car's extreme capabilities.

Only a couple of design sketches for the AMR Pro have been released, but they suggest it will sport a large rear wing and a Le Mans-style fin down the centre of the vehicle. The end result was a significant gain in downforce compared to the regular Valkyrie, thanks in no short part to larger front and rear wing elements as well as active aerodynamic controls that were tweaked for track use.

Lil Peep Dies Due To Overdose Before Tuscon Performance
His death was announced by his manager Chase Oretega, who tweeted "been expecting this call for a year". "I don't feel good man". Lil Peep first received recognition after posting his songs, EPs and mix tapes onto Soundcloud since 2015.

Aston Martin has taken the wraps off its track-focused version of the forthcoming Valkyrie, reports Autocar.

"While it is endowed with extraordinary performance, it has always been vitally important to me that the Valkyrie functions well as a true road vehicle, and that naturally comes with some constraints", Adrian Newey, Red Bull's star aerodynamicist who is leading the design work, said of the auto.

The Rimac Energy Recovery System remains unchanged, but its control systems will be re-programmed. Want to watch but not got Sky F1?

Because they don't have to muffle the engine note for track use or worry about any emissions control devices, we're in to hear maximum V12 ridiculousness should we ever encounter a Valkyrie AMR Pro in real life. While the core elements of the road and track versions are shared, every aspect of the AMR Pro - aerodynamics, chassis, powertrain and weight - has been optimised to significantly extend the performance envelope.

This was above an average estimate of CNY 15.18 billion from six analysts polled by Thomson Reuters. Its release in the USA has been delayed from this month until next year.

Features such as the heater and infotainment screens have been stripped out to reduce weight, while a polycarbonate windscreen and lighter construction carbon-fibre bodywork have also been specified. And just so you know, all these units have been accounted for. It also features Formula 1-inspired race-spec carbon-ceramic brakes. "One that's propelling Aston Martin and 25 of our most passionate customers into a new and extraordinary realm".

Owners will also be able to experience speeds approaching 250 miles per hour, as well as cornering forces in excess of 3.3 g and braking deceleration of more than 3.5 g.

Owners will have access to the same training facilities as the Red Bull Racing drivers to cope with the additional strain the auto puts on their bodies.

All that leads Aston and Red Bull to claim that the Valkyrie will be able to lap the world's major tracks in comparable times to today's F1 cars and LMP1 machines. Delivery of the £2.5m hypercar, of which just 150 will be made, is expected to begin in early 2019.

ICRA welcomes GST rate cut on restaurants
The council has prescribed a uniform 5 per cent slab for all the restaurants, including both air-conditioned and non-AC ones. The rate for restaurants in starred hotel will remain 18 per cent along with the benefit of input tax credit.

Finally, the track vehicle will benefit from a weight-saving program.
