Introducing the Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro

To make the auto even more special and to perform even better than it already does, the AMR Pro performance pack can now be specified. This, plus new wing endplates that sport additional 15mm Gurneys has helped boost downforce by 27 per cent.

The Aston Martin Vulcan is certainly not something you would call "tame", especially when it comes to the way it looks.

The new dual plane rear wing does a similar job for the back of the auto, with a 20mm "Gurney" flap to help maximise downforce. There's also a new carbon fiber engine cover that reduces the Vulcan's overall weight by 5 kg or 11 pounds.

Aston Martin on Thursday unveiled its new Vulcan AMR Pro package, an upgrade that's aimed at improving the performance of the track-only supercar, according to a press release.

Since the Vulcan originally cost around $3 million, it's thought the AMR Pro pack will cost more than $100,000. Expect to see the Vulcan AMR Pro fly up the hill at Goodwood this weekend. That's more than a 600-foot-pounds increase over the standard vehicle, and almost 700 foot-pounds more than the Vantage GTE-Pro that won this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans. In fact, the Vulcan AMR Pro has approximately 30 percent more downforce than Aston Martin's Le Mans-winning Vantage GTE. The added aero bits has also improved the aerodynamic balance of the Vulcan, shifting the centre of pressure forwards, bringing it closer to the middle of the auto.

Aston Martin Vulcan has been announced to have the latest AMR Pro upgrade.

"The shorter gearing makes for truly explosive acceleration between the corners, while the aero package's increased downforce and improved balance gives our customers the all-important confidence to explore the extraordinary performance on offer", he added.

"I can't wait to see the customers' faces when they experience it for themselves!"

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