Aston Martin has given us a teaser of its upcoming Valkyrie AMR Pro and what better place to show it off than at a Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine that produces 1,000hp and revs up to 11,000rpm.

This insane engine hits a claimed top speed of 362kmh (225mph) – something F1 fans will love dearly.

German racing driver, Dirk Müller took the wheel of the Valkyrie AMR Pro for its global dynamic debut at the Bahrain GP and said that it was “unbelievable”.

The Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro completed two runs during the inaugural Grand Prix weekend.

It has been years since Formula 1 tracks saw a V12 engine, so the Cosworth-built 6.5-litre powerplant in the Valkyrie AMR Pro gave the fans exactly the special treat they wanted.

Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Tobias Moers said: “This car is performance engineering at its best. All of our test drivers, all extremely successful racing drivers, are in awe of this car and it is easy to understand why. Valkyrie AMR Pro is approaching F1 performance levels, and we are very proud of the most extreme Aston Martin yet.”

The Valkyrie AMR Pro is set to launch later this year, costing $3.5m.
