Wing commander: Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro launched

Aston Martin has launched an even more extreme version of its track-only Vulcan, the AMR Pro.

The AMR Pro package is available as an upgrade for current owners of the Vulcan and brings a whole host of improvements.

The front wheel arches see the addition of louvred carbon-fibre panels, which extract high-pressure air in an effort to reduce aerodynamic lift.

Dive planes are present on both sides of the nose to keep the Vulcan grounded, with the front splitter also gaining new turning vanes to improve steering response. Thanks to a lighter engine cover, there's also a 5kg weight loss.

There's improvements at the back of the Vulcan AMR Pro, too.

A new design rear wing is in place, with a dual plane design rather than the base car's single plane, with a 20mm Gurney flap featuring on the trailing edge that is supplemented with slotted wing endplates.

David King, Aston Martin vice-president and chief special operations officer, said: "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."
