New photos show more details of the Aston Martin Valkyrie
The Aston Martin Valkyrie is one of the most hyped cars of the decade and will hit the roads sometime in the next 18 months. Being developed by both Aston Martin and Red Bull, the Valkyrie will basically be a F1 car for the road.
These new photos were uploaded to Aston Martin's Instagram account last night and the car looks incredible. The two-tone paint work combines two different shades of blue which reminds me of the launch colours used on the Bugatti Chiron. More importantly, the picture of interest is the interior shot.
The interior is a piece of art, as combines carbon fiber, Alcantara, and racing-inspired technology. The steering wheel is one of the best steering wheels I've ever seen, with its F1 touches and fixed digital display replacing a traditional instrument binnacle. Said display shows the driver the ground speed, engine speed, and more parameters.
There are two more screens on the dashboard, one place in the center of the dash and another on the passenger side with both oriented towards the driver. Aston Martin says the Valkyrie features a “feet up” position that allows the driver to feel at one with the car, for the ultimate drive experience.
As we know already, the Valkyrie will be the world's most powerful naturally aspirated car thanks to it's Cosworth engineered 6.5 litre V12 which will produce 1130bhp. The car will also have a KERS system which has been developed by Rimac. The car also has a targeted 1:1 power-to-weight ratio which should allow the car to be insanely fast.
Expect to see prototypes on the road before the year ends. Only 150 will be built, costing at least $3.2 million. And yes, all of them have been sold.
What do you think?
We're looking forward to seeing the Valkyrie in full production spec. But we want to know what you think. Would you have this or the Mercedes-AMG ONE? Let us know in the comments below.
