Aston Martin Valkyrie has been one of the most hyped and talked about hypercars in the recent times. After the first unveiling about two years back, it has given us topics to talk about occasionally. Aston claimed the Valkyrie to be the fastest street-legal car in the world and unveiled its 1160hp powertrain.
The Valkyrie has been showcased in public many times but just in idle positions at the shows. Now for the first time, the hypercar has showed in open in the production form and doing what it is actually made for. Aston Martin has done the first public demonstration of the Valkyrie at the Silverstone Circuit in the United Kindom.
Tell me more about the Aston Martin Valkyrie
Finished in black and red shade, the production Valkyrie looks as appealing as it did in as a concept. Chris Goodwin, who was behind the wheel of the beast said driving the hypercar was “exceptionally special”. Well, it should be because Aston Martin has decided to only produce 150 unit of Valkyrie to sell at a price of $3.2 million each. And like all the limited edition hypercars these days, all the slots have been already sold.
Coming back to the car, the Aston Martin Valkyrie is developed by the company in a collaboration with Red Bull Racing to get the F1 DNA. It will use a big naturally aspirated V12 built by Cosworth fitted at the rear and produces a massive 1000 horsepower. The engine could rev up to 11,100rpm, staying true to its F1 DNA. It that wasn’t enough, the engine is paired with hybrid motors and the combined output of the system gets to 1160 horsepower and 900Nm of torque.
There is no specific date announced on when Aston will start delivering the cars to the customers. However for those elite few nodding their heads, it is going to be the fourth quarter of this year.
