Motoring journalists have finally been allowed behind the wheel of The Valkyrie Aston Martin’s hypercar, the Valkyrie. We take a look at whether the Valkyrie is a ‘leap’ car, alike the Lamborghini Miura, McLaren F1 and Bugatti Veyron.
Motoring journalists have finally been allowed behind the wheel of Aston Martin’s hypercar, the Valkyrie. At Nicholas Mee and the Aston Store, we have spent way too much time reading the various reviews and watching the various videos of some of the worlds finest motoring journalists trying the Valkyrie for the first time, with our favourite being this video starring Henry Catchpole, one of the most talented and considered writers out there. It also happens to have the least advert breaks!
The car contains a 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine tailored by Cosworth, which produces around 1,000 hp (746 kW; 1,014 PS) at 10,600 rpm, with a redline of 11,100 rpm. This will make it the most powerful naturally-aspirated engine ever to be fitted to a production road car, With a KERS-style boost system akin to those fitted to F1 cars, the Aston Martin Valkyrie's hybrid system has been developed by two main technical partners; Integral Powertrain Ltd, who supplied the bespoke electric motor, and Rimac for the lightweight hybrid battery system.
The Valkyrie's design is based on the Red Bull Advanced Technologies' AM-RB 001 concept car, which was unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The car's bodywork is made from carbon fibre, and it features a number of aerodynamic features, including a large front splitter, a rear diffuser, and a pair of active rear winglets. The Valkyrie also has a number of innovative engineering features, including a pushrod suspension system, a carbon fibre monocoque chassis, and a lightweight titanium exhaust system.
