The new car will feature a race-prepared version of its bespoke high-revving normally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine.

High Revving 6.5L V12. Yummy !!!!!!

I know that I've been asking a few tech questions about AMR racing cars, but anyone know the suspension configuration of the Valkyrie? As in is it similar to current F1/LMP1 cars?

Good looking vehicle for sure. Wonder if they will go with daiglow yellow or dark green for the livery?

I think as much as they have publicized the car with the green and day-glo strip it will have to be that livery in race trim. Fits with the previous Aston projects and much better than the hideous GTE crime on the eyes

Anyone think that there may be some marketing issues come 2020? AMR in GTE Pro is sponsored by Total, while the promotional car for the Valkyrie AMR Pro shows Mobil/Exxon/Esso sponsorship?

Even though Prodrive won't have anything directly to do with the LMP1 program, AMR is still AMR at the end of the day.

Separate cars with separate teams and programs. Not really anything to see there at all. If they tie the Valkyrie program in with Red Bull they will likely have to run with Mobil/Esso branding. Also probably why they have used the ExxonMobil branding on the promo material

I freely admit I'm with you on the yellow. Don't like it at all. It's neither one thing nor the other..... My personal opinion, of course.....

It's good to have them back in the top class. They are certainly showing how serious they are about it. It's very encouraging for the future of the series

Not sure if its been mentioned before, but one of the design goal of the Valkyrie is to be faster round a track than an F1 car.....
