Aston Martin’s new £3million Valkyrie AMR Pro revealed


As if millionaire’s aren’t already spoiled for choice, two new models also launched at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday will rival the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro for big chunks of their bank balances.

Here are the other cars they have to choose from…

The Bugatti Chiron Sport is a lightweight version of the road car

With a top speed of 261mph and a 0-62mph time of 2.5 seconds, it is definitely faster than the Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro, but will it handle as well?

Bugatti Chiron Sport – £2.35 million

The first is the Bugatti Chiron Sport – a lighter version of its already immense hypercar. The 8.0-litre 16-cylinder engine retains the same level of power, but new suspension, steering and differential tweaks should make it even more rapid around a circuit.

A total of 18kg has been lopped from the weight of the standard Chiron, helping it power from a standstill to 62mph in less than 2.5 seconds, to 124mph in less than 6.5 seconds and on to a bonkers top speed of 261mph.

Those modifications don’t come cheap, though – expect to pay from €2.65million (£2.35million) if you want one.

It will produce in the region of 814bhp, making it the second most potent vehicle ever made by the British marque (only beaten by the P1 hypercar)

McLaren Senna GTR – £1.2million

If your budget won’t quite stretch too far, McLaren will provide you with your circuit-lapping fix with the new Senna GTR.

We’ve already seen the Senna road car, but the track-only GTR will have more power, more grip and more downforce than the same model fitted with number plates.

The twin-turbo V8 engine will be wound up to produce 814bhp, which is still short of the 903bhp P1 hypercar.

Just 75 are due to be built, all of which will cost £1.2million including taxes.
