Aside from introducing the AMR Track Performance Pack , Aston Martin is also showcasing three AMR livery designs: Spirit (silver car), Mantis (green car), and Ultimate (black car). For those not entirely happy with how the Valkyrie looks with any of these special finishes

With a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V-12 that makes 1,000 hp at a screaming 10,500 rpm and ground-effect aerodynamics honed by Formula 1 design genius Adrian Newey that deliver its own weight in downforce at 120 mph, you'd think the $3 million-plus Aston Martin Valkyrie would have a the "ultimate" bit nailed in terms of describing this extraordinary hypercar. But wait, there's more. The AMR Track Performance Pack takes the Valkyrie beyond ultimate.

Available as an option for the 150 Valkyrie road cars, the AMR Track Performance Pack includes new front panels that deliver greater downforce, lightweight titanium brakes, a more track-focused suspension, and a matte black magnesium performance wheel and carbon-fiber aero-disk set.

Pride of the Valkyries: What's Inside Aston Martin's Ridiculous Custom V-12

Pride of the Valkyries: What's Inside Aston Martin's Ridiculous Custom V-12 Legendary engine builder Cosworth will make just 150 custom V-12s for the new Aston Martin Valkyrie supercar. Here's what's inside that roaring 1,000-hp monster. When a new supercar arrives, the motor gets the glory. Which is as it should be-anytime an automaker throws big money into designing an exotic spaceframe and 200-mile-per-hour bodywork, it needs muscle to match. The wrong engine, meanwhile, can sink a supercar's reception and reputation (look at the Jaguar XJ220 for a lesson in how a whole car suffers if it's got a weak heart).

AMR Track Performance Pack provides road-going editions with additional on- track performance . New materials, new paint colours and racing liveries Owners of the Aston Martin Valkyrie – the ultimate expression of hypercar design, engineering and performance – already know they’re due to.

Aston Martin Valkyrie 's 150 Buyers Can Add an AMR Track Performance Package. In fact, it is a kit of parts that will enable owners to transform the street legal Valkyrie into something with close to the circuit performance of the track -only Valkyrie AMR Pro that will ultimately follow.

The Pack also includes a complete second set of all other exterior body panels, handy for owners who are serious about their track days. These are available in a choice of three standard color schemes, including the Stirling Green and Lime livery shown here. Alternatively, owners can create their own unique color scheme via Q by Aston Martin, Aston's in-house bespoke color and trim service.

All the Pack's components, which are specifically designed for track-only use, can be interchanged with the existing road-legal parts. And they're not just for show: Aston Martin claims the extra downforce, more responsive suspension, and more powerful brakes mean Pack-equipped Valkyries will deliver lap times about 8-percent quicker than the standard car.

The Next Thing Out of Aston Martin's Lagonda Will Be an Electric SUV

The Next Thing Out of Aston Martin's Lagonda Will Be an Electric SUV Following the DBX, Aston Martin is likely to continue its all-terrain offensive with a luxurious Lagonda EV. Aston Martin's first SUV will be the 2020 DBX, but Andy Palmer's team is also busy with the revival of the once-prestigious Lagonda brand. And based on what we know about that luxurious line so far, when we finally see a new Lagonda, we suspect it'll be the exact opposite of a V12-powered Rolls-Royce Cullinan. Aston is promising the first modern Lagonda will be an all-terrain EV, a concept of which they will present at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Customers of the AMR Track Performance Pack can choose between three AMR livery designs Aston ’s ‘ Ultimate Personalisation’ programme will allow Valkyrie owners to make their wildest Among the particularly noteworthy options offered from ‘Q by Aston Martin ’ include the Gold Pack
