Underlining Aston Martin's commitment to its new high-performance brand, AMR's European development and brand centre will be based at Aston Martin's state-of-the-art Nürburgring Test Centre, which is situated within sight of the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife race track.
Speaking with Autocar at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this week, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer says the Valkyrie is "important in establishing Aston as a credible maker of mid-engined models". The best thing about these cars will be that they will have an exquisite kind of interior designing as well.
The Vantage AMR Pro pairs its race-spec fully adjustable suspension with stouter engine/transmission mounts and wraps its super-sticky Michelin Pilot Cup 2 tires around 19-inch staggered-width center-lock alloy wheels. These models will go for production soon as well.
The head honcho discussed the supercar that will follow the halo vehicle, stating that the model will be built on the "form follows function" priciple, while betting on the Aston Martin beauty card.
A more dramatic-and more exclusive, as just seven will be created-exercise, the Aston Martin Vantage AMR Pro reprises the same exterior/interior color scheme but adds a load more competitive edge.
The Vantage Pro will surely have a touch of the iconic cars of the 1930s and will be following the design and lead of WEC Winner V8 Vantage GTE. Featuring a 600PS version of Aston Martin's celebrated 6.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 and Aston Martin claims it is the world's fastest and most thrilling four-door, capable of 210MPH. "They are the start of something very exciting - a programme that will eventually see an AMR version of every model in the Aston Martin range".
