In addition, calibration changes to the 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine's emission control systems and re-programming of the Energy Recovery System have resulted in a combined power output of more than 1100bhp, and a auto which is still capable of hitting 225mph. Meanwhile, the automaker confirmed the Valkyrie AMR Pro will still be able to hit 225 miles per hour, even in high-downforce track configuration.

There's every chance the Valkyrie Pro will be travelling at a fair speed by the time you have finished reading out that rather lengthy name, given that its V12 hybrid engine produces a staggering 1100 horsepower and is capable of taking the vehicle all the way to 225mph.

Well, here's something you don't see every day.

Aston Martin will build only 25 of the Valkyrie AMR Pro models, with deliveries coming in 2020.

Unlike the road-going version of the Valkyrie, the AMR Pro is unencumbered by the need to negotiate suburbs and registration, so it is more focused for track duties.

The engine is a re-tuned version of the 6.5-liter V12 that Aston Martin so graciously bestowed upon the standard (if you can call it that) Valkyrie.

Featuring a revised and wider bodywork, along with larger front and rear wing elements, the Valkyrie AMR Pro is purpose-built for the track and benefits from a more powerful hybrid V12 powertrain and lighter curb weight.

The Valkyrie is one of the most exciting hypercars on the way - a collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies.

"I'm starting to get used to some of the extraordinary things Adrian (Newey), Red Bull Racing, Aston Martin and all our exceptional technical partners - now including Mobil 1 and Esso as Valkyrie's official oil and fuel partners - are capable of, but the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro is something truly mind-bending,"added Palmer".

Some amenities are also missing from the Valkyrie AMR Pro to lighten its load, including removal of the heater/de-mister, infotainment system, and the glass windscreen and side windows (which are now polycarbonate). We've told a few of its secrets, but by no means all. "Suffice to say they're quite impressive". All cars are sold. Appropriately enough, it is sitting alongside an example of each of these on Aston's stand at the Geneva Motor Show. Public days are March 8th to 18th.
