Aston Martin reveals exterior and interior design of new Valkyrie sleek car

Since the first reveal of the Aston Martin ‘Valkyrie Hypercar‘ in July 2016, Aston Martin, red bull advanced technologies and AF racing have been working intensively to further develop the ‘Valkyrie's’ aerodynamics, body styling and cockpit packaging. a glance inside the otherworldly vehicle’s cockpit reveals a F1-style reclined driving position, and minimalist ergonomics.

Aston Martin says the Valkyrie you see here in official pictures is 95% the real article when production starts late next year. Known by the codename of AM-RB001, the hypercar is developed in conjunction with Red Bull Racing, which hopes to draw its expertise in F1 racing into the road car.

Much of the focus in the Valkyrie has been put on aerodynamics explaining its technical yet voluptuous surfaces. Note the intricate front lip spoiler, rear air diffuser and mag wheels, fashioned with racing-style centre-lock mechanism.

Thanks to the use of carbonfibre body parts, Aston Martin says the Valkyrie tips the scales at just 1,030kg – as light as a B-segment Ecocar - to help for remarkable performance. Downforce itself is claimed at a staggering 1,814kg.

Aston Martin has yet to reveal any performance figures yet, but we are certainly looking at a very quick car that’s likely to take just over 2sec to reach 100kph from standstill and go in excess of 350kph without sweat.

Since the Valkyrie will be made in limited numbers of just 150 units, a large number of outside suppliers are to be involved in the development of it.

The 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 comes from Cosworth and has been confirmed to develop 1,146hp making the power to weight ratio exceed 1:1. The seven-speed paddle-shift automatic is courtesy of Ricardo.

Like in F1 racecars, the Valkyrie will have a KERS-style hybrid battery from Rimac for on-demand overtaking power. The car’s electronics – electronic control unit, traction control and stability control – has been developed by Bosch.
