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 disc set.
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.
