Red Bull Technology's chief technical officer, Adrian Newey, said: "It has always been vitally important to me that the Valkyrie functions well as a true road auto, and that naturally comes with some constraints".
According to the European automobile editions, the company Aston Martin has published the first images of the new Aston Martin AMR Pro Valkyrie.
Some of the aero is visible in these early drawings: note the larger front and rear wings and Aston promises tweaked active elements which shape-shift depending on speed of entry and position on a track.
Aston Martin hasn't revealed much about what will power the Valkyrie AMR Pro other than stating that it will get a revised 6.5-liter V12.

Warner Bros . had chosen December 13 back when Episode IX was scheduled for May 2019, and under the wings of Colin Trevorrow . Abrams replaced Colin Trevorrow in the director's chair.
The AMR Pro runs on wheels of a smaller diameter than the road vehicle (18 inch front and rear) in order to facilitate the fitment of Michelin racing tyres, which are made to the same specification as those used by LMP1 cars in the World Endurance Championship.
The Rimac Energy Recovery System remains unchanged, but its control systems will be re-programmed.
Items that are just unnecessary weight for track use, such as the onboard infotainment screen and heater, have been stripped out or replaced with more lightweight versions. That means the Valkyrie AMR Pro will put out more than the estimated 1,130 hp of its road-legal brethren. Further savings come from the windscreen and side windows being made from a polycarbonate material.
The Valkyrie AMR Pro also gains F1-inspired race-spec carbon-carbon brakes.
Aston says that this auto will offer a top speed of over 250 miles per hour, cornering grip exceeding 3.3g, and 3.5g of maximum braking force. Those forces are so extreme, Aston Martin will offer owners access to Red Bull Racing's F1 driver training facilities, so they can better cope with the strain on their bodies. These include polycarbonate windscreen (with heater elements) and side windows, a lighter construction of carbon fibre bodywork, new suspension uprights and carbon fibre wishbones, plus moulded race seats in place of the adjustable road auto items. This includes time in the simulator and professional on-track tuition, plus programmes to improve their physical fitness. The vehicle itself will have its own dedicated track events for owners to show up and drive.
