Aston Martin Makes the Insane Vulcan Even Crazier With AMR PRO Model

TrackWorthy- V8 Powered Aston Martin DB11 Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro proves there's always room for more insanity

But in this instance the AMR treatment shows that Aston Martin hasn't simply been resting on it laurels, honing the package as it goes.

"We worked hard to ensure it's not a monster to drive, so it was important the AMR Pro upgrade remains true to that objective".

Those aerodynamic changes at the front include dive planes at each side to help stick the Vulcan down, louvered panels on the front wheel arches to reduce lift and vanes under the front splitter for better steering response.

Shorter gear ratios also help the Vulcan accelerate better off the line and at corner exit, which seems like a useful upgrade for an 820-hp vehicle. Every little bit helps.

So, what do you get with the AMR package?

Visitors to this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, which finishes on 2 July, will be among the first to see the auto, as Aston Martin will be running a Vulcan AMR Pro up the hillclimb all weekend. Aston Martin points out that it now has even more downforce than the company's Vantage GTE, which won Le Mans. 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 supplement with slotted wing endplates.

Aston Martin is expected to approach Vulcan owners individually to offer the AMR Pro upgrades.

"Like anything with a motorsport mindset, once we'd built and delivered all 24 Vulcans we started thinking about how to make it quicker". They were delivered to specially chosen customers throughout 2016, and since then, Aston Martin instructors-including three-time Le Mans victor Darren Turner-have been shaping the buyers into better drivers who can appreciate and properly use such a machine. The aero tweaks do more than just push the vehicle into the ground, they also redistribute the force to give the Vulcan better balance overall at speed. 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.
