Aston Martin upgrades Vulcan with aerodynamic enhancements and shorter gearing

The Aston Martin Vulcan is already a pretty extreme hyper car, but somehow the brand has taken it to new extremes in the form of the AMR Pro version. This new version comes with extensive aerodynamic enhancements and shortened gear ratios for quicker response and higher cornering speeds.

The Vulcan AMR Pro’s aerodynamic enhancements begin at the front-end with louvered panels added above the front wheel arches to extract high pressure air and reduce aerodynamic lift. A sizeable pair of dive planes have been added to each side of the nose to help pin the front-end to the track and the huge front splitter has turning vanes fitted to its underside to improve steering response. Weight has also been saved with optimisation of the carbon fibre lay-up and core form reducing the weight of the engine cover by 5kg.

At the rear, the equally effective and even more dramatic, courtesy of a new rear wing. The combined effect of these aerodynamic changes is a major increase in downforce, from the standard Vulcan’s 3150Nm to an astonishing 4000Nm. This compares to 3104Nm generated by the 2017 Le Mans winning Vantage GTE. The AMR Pro upgrade package will be installed by Q by Aston Martin Advanced Operations. Work is already underway on the first upgrades, with the first customer cars expected to be completed in the coming months.
