Aston Martins new performance brand AMR has birthed an even more extreme version of the track only Vulcan, making its public debut at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The Vulcan AMR Pro has an upgrade package that includes shorter gearing, reduced weight and extensive aerodynamic enhancements. Louvred panels have been added above the front wheel arches that reduce aerodynamic lift by extracting the high pressure air. Large dive planes take place in the front corners of the nose helping to pin down the front end with the front splitter utilising turning vanes to improve steering response. The weight savings come from the optimisation of the carbon fibre lay-up and core form. The rear wing is now a dual plane design replacing the old single plane piece, generating more downforce than previously.

Aston Martin Vice President and Chief Special Operations Officer, David King, said of the Aston martin Vulcan AMR Pro: “When we first conceived the Aston Martin Vulcan it was to create something that expressed Aston Martin’s wilder side. The result was an ultimate track car – one free from the regulations and constraints of World Championship competition. A flight of fantasy, if you like. But one we could share with our keenest customers. Like anything with a motorsport mindset, once we’d built and delivered all 24 Vulcans we started thinking about how to make it quicker. And so the Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro was born. The shorter gearing makes for truly explosive acceleration between the corners, while the aero package’s increased downforce and improved balance gives our customers the all-important confidence to explore the extraordinary performance on offer.”
