The Aston Martin Vulcan Just Got More Extreme With The AMR Pro Package


And you thought it couldn't possibly get any more vicious. It just did.

The track-only Vulcan is the most extreme car Aston Martin has ever made – at least until the street-legal Valkyrie arrives in 2019. Just when you thought the 820-horsepower beast couldn’t get any more vicious, the Vulcan has been given the AMR (Aston Martin Racing) treatment. While the AMR Pro upgrade package doesn’t increase the power of the Vulcan, the numerous aerodynamic enhancements and shortened gearing result in an insane amount of downforce and brisker acceleration.

At the front of theVulcanAMR Pro are louvred panels located above the wheel arches which extract high pressure and reduce aerodynamic lift. A pair of dive planes have been fitted to each side of the nose to increase downforce, and steering response is improved thanks to a huge front splitter with turning vanes. The engine cover is also 5 kg lighter than the standard Vulcan. The rear of the Vulcan AMR Pro looks even more aggressive, thanks to a striking new rear wing with a dual plane design that produces even more downforce. A 20 mm Gurney flap is added to the wing’s trailing edge supplemented by slotted wing endplates with additional flaps.

As a result of these changes, the Vulcan AMR Pro produces a colossal 4000Nm of downforce, up from 3150Nm in the standard Vulcan. To put that into perspective, that's significantly more downforce than the 2017 Le Mans winning Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE. The aerodynamic balance of the Aston Martin Vulcan has also been improved by shifting thecenterof pressure closer to the middle of the car to improve traction, steering response and front-end grip. If you were hoping to place a deposit, you’re unfortunately out of luck. Only existing owners of the 24 Vulcans that were produced will be entitled to the AMR Pro upgrade package.

Aston Martin’s Q personalization and performance division are currently installing the first upgrades for customers, with deliveries starting this fall. In the meantime, you can marvel at the Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed which is now underway.
