Aston Martin has announced that its new Valkyrie will be offered with an AMR Track Performance Pack.
The Gaydon-based firm says the optional pack’s track-only components – which can be interchanged with the existing road-legal parts – will deliver “approximately” eight percent quicker lap times than the standard Valkyrie (although the brand qualifies this by saying it is "dependant on track configurations, circuit conditions, tyre degradation and driver ability).
The pack includes a new front clamshell arrangement delivering greater downforce, a second set of all other exterior body panels, lightweight titanium brakes, track-focused suspension and a matte-black magnesium performance wheel and carbon-fibre aero-disc set.
Three AMR livery designs will be offered, while buyers can also specify a customised finish.
Furthermore, the firm says its personalisation service “Q by Aston Martin” will offer all manner of options for the road-legal version, including four “Designer Specification” themes (check out some of the details in the embedded video below). Aston Martin claims this service makes the Valkyrie "one of the world’s most customisable cars".
As a reminder, just 150 units of the Valkyrie will be produced, each powered by a Cosworth-developed, naturally aspirated 6,5-litre V12 worth 746 kW and 740 N.m (working as part of a battery hybrid system the automaker has yet to detail).
