Aston Martin DB11 now offered with Mercedes-AMG V8 engine

Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro proves there's always room for more insanity

The new dual plane rear wing does a similar job for the back of the vehicle, with a 20mm "Gurney" flap to help maximise downforce. The actual result - the Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro, is coming out with the ability to be used as a trench compactor when one needs some new tarmac on the circuit. The AMR Pro package will be available exclusively to the owners of the 24 Vulcans sold by the automaker who have also received training from its driving instructors at race tracks such as Circuit of the Americas in the US and Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. The changes done include extensive aerodynamic enhancements and shortened gearing to produce increased downforce, greater responsiveness and reduced lap times, states Aston Martin.

Two years ago at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Aston Martin Vulcan track-day monster got its dynamic debut as AML showcased their £1.8 million hypercar for well-heeled track day aficionados.

The lucky customers have participated in exclusive driving events held at some of the world's best Formula One circuits, including Circuit of the Americas in the USA, Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi and, naturally, Aston Martin's home circuit, Silverstone. The endplates are slotted and feature their own 15mm Gurney flaps, for yet more downforce.

The package also sees a "surge in maximum downforce", allowing Vulcan AMR Pro models to generate more aerodynamic grip than Aston's "Le Mans class winning Vantage GTE".

Aston says the AMR Pro package will be made available this fall, and will be installed by Q by Aston Martin Advanced Operations. For starters, you get a lot more aerodynamic performance, with Aston Martin quoting 4,000 Nm of downforce being generated compared to just 3,150 Nm for the standard Vulcan. Turner said Aston Martin focused a lot on making sure the Vulcan was very driveable, despite its high power output, and things that carried over into the development of the AMR upgrade.
