Introducing the Aston Martin Valkyrie
Performance that is put simply, otherworldly. There are times in the automotive world when a car comes along that defies what we already know about the automobile. A car that does not just push the envelope of what's possible, it simply tears up the envelope and creates its own unique, awe-inspiring path.
This is one of those times; introducing the simply stunning Aston Martin Valkyrie, an incredibly exceptional automobile with a remarkable name, chosen by the Gods, emitting epic power and honour.
Only 150 examples of this phenomenal road car will ever be made; and this is the first hypercar Aston Martin has ever produced - quite simply on another level in terms of what we can expect from the automobile.
Developed with Red Bull Racing
Take one look at the Valkyrie, and it is clear to see that cars like this do not come around all that often. There are headturners, and then there is the Valkyrie. Looks are one thing, but the Valkyrie does not just follow suit of other hypercars that have gone before it, it blazes its own remarkable trail.
Developed with world renown Red Bull Racing Formula One racing team, the Valkyrie receives state-of-the-art technology, usually only reserved for Formula 1 racing cars and space craft. This is instantly evident from the car's styling, which is nothing short of stunning, and in most cases unbelievable.
Carbon-fibre is the dominant structure, with not one piece of steel being used in any of the Valkyrie's structure. This equates to an ultra-lightweight body, combined with enhanced hypercar power for a truly biblical driving experience; one that offers a perfect 1:1 power-to-weight ratio for pure driving perfection.
And what powers this holy grail automobile? A colossal power-plant in the form of a 6.5-litre V12 engine that has been co-developed with world renown motorsport and engine builder Cosworth.
The whole setup comprises of a hybrid system, which is different from the more commonly found conventional arrangement. Therefore, the glorious V12 is torque-enhanced during take-off and uses the accompanying electric motor for an enhanced power boost, to further complement the Valkyrie's unbelievable turn of speed.
In total, the iconic V12 works in harmony with electric wizardry, and ensures that the Aston Martin Valkyrie has a total of 1160bhp.
Aerodynamics have been sculptured and crafted in such a way that the Valkyrie emits the looks of both space-age and Formula 1 styling, to create a car like nothing else that has ever graced a public road.
Step inside the interior and it is similar to climbing into that of a Formula 1 car or jet fighter, which is appropriate given the Red Bull Racing affiliation.
Space-age style continues throughout the interior with multiple screens, including one in the centre of the steering wheel, ensuring the driver has access to all the necessary information. Premium materials complement the feel, as this is still an Aston Martin after all.
