The hyper real hypercar
Introducing a truly revolutionary and ground-breaking hypercar that takes your breath away from the moment you lay eyes on it : the Aston Martin Valkyrie. It’s the result of a unique partnership between Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced technologies, an extraordinary collaboration that’s created a car that’s unlike you’ve ever laid eyes upon.
It’s rumoured there will only be 150 built for the road with 25 track only editions. Exact pricing hasn’t yet been revealed but it’s likely they could be anywhere up to £3m.
Although the exact performance stats of the Aston Martin Valkyrie are yet to be released, it’s safe to assume that it will be beyond breathtaking – otherworldly in fact. However, it has been revealed that it could use a naturally aspirated Cosworth 6.5 litre V12 that’s expected to product a staggering 900bhp.
When you consider it’s the combination of Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Aston Martin, there can be no doubt it’ll leave nothing in reserve. A car that will propel its lucky occupants into another world – in a single breath.
Singularly ambitious and uncompromising in every minute detail, the Aston Martin Valkyrie is the ultimate expression of hypercar design and engineering. Sinuous and streamlined from every angle, its evocative form draws you in with the promise of otherworldly performance. Rest assured it lives up to that promise.
It seems fitting then that it takes its name from ancient Norse mythology and continues Aston V named cars. It all started back in 1951 with Vantage, which was selected to highlight high performance variants of the then current model. Virage, Vanquish, Vulcan are all recent V cars that continue this lineage.
Using a carbonfibre Monocell provided by longstanding Aston Martin partner Multimatic, the Valkyrie is exceptionally light and strong. As a result, it’s expected to have a total kerb weight of less than a tonne. This comes with Aston Martin’s claim for a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio, plus an F1-inspired energy recovery system (ERS) to draw kinetic energy whilst braking. Such a combination equals a car that’s unlike anything else you’ve ever seen or heard. Prepare yourself.
