The new Aston Martin Valkyrie hypermarket of 2019-2020, created by Aston Martin , Red Bull Advanced Technologies and AF Racing, is almost completely ready for mass production and was previously disclosed for acquaintance. In our review, the full information about Aston Martin Valkyrie – photos and videos, the price and equipment, the technical characteristics of the unique British sports car with the technologies that came from the royal races of Formula-1. Price Aston Martin Valkyrie equipped with a 6.5-liter petrol engine V12 Cosworth in the company with a light hybrid battery system (analog KERS boost system used on the cars of Formula 1) and 7-step robotic gearbox Ricardo is from 2 million pounds. It is interesting that all 150 copies of the road versions of Aston Martin Valkyrie were sold long before the production of the novelty, and the supply of hypercar owners will begin only in early 2019.
The prototype of the new unique British hypercar appeared for the first time in public in August 2016 and was called the Aston Martin AM-RB 001. In the spring of 2020, as part of the Geneva Motor Show, the new British hypercar appeared before the visitors with the original name Valkyrie. It’s unfortunate, but in Geneva Aston Martin allowed only to appreciate the phenomenally stylish body of the novelty with unique aerodynamic chips that migrated to a car capable of moving on ordinary roads from the Formula-1 cars.
Aston Martin Valkyrie did not have an opportunity to evaluate the interior of the hypermarket, but a few months later Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies announced their readiness to disclose all information about the novelty, show the interior and tell about the technical stuffing.
It is worth noting that the body of the new Aston Martin Valkyrie is absolutely not typical even for the bulk of modern sports cars and hyper cars. Before us is a real racing car that descended from the Formula One track or the Le Mans Prototype championship to public roads.
In the presence of a fully made of carbon fiber body with unusual for production cars aerodynamic elements from the company Mutimatic. Appearance of the new British hyper car is fantastic with the wheels arranged on the perimeter of the body, covered with arches’ cupolas on top, a neat dome over the two-seater saloon, which can be accessed through the doors of the “seagull’s wings”. Under the body of the car are aerodynamic tunnels ‘Venturi tunnels’, which ensure the correct distribution of air flows and excellent downforce when driving at high speed.
According to preliminary information, the curb weight of the Aston Martin Valkyrie is 900 kg.
In the presence of a petrol 6.5-liter V12 Cosworth engine with a power of 830 powers and an electric motor, the total return will be more than 900 horses. Thus, the hypercar will be able to boast an excellent ratio of power unit to unit mass – 1 HP per 1 kg.
Declared by the manufacturer dynamic and high-speed characteristics are impressive: from 0 to 322 km / h in 10.0 seconds, the maximum speed is more than 400 km / h.
In the technique of the new Aston Martin Valkyrie, in addition to the gasoline engine from Cosworth, a moderate hybrid plant from Rimac, a robotic gearbox created by Ricardo specialists, a brake system is used from Alcon and Surface Transforms, Bosch electronics and Wipac lighting. The supplier of tires for a unique hypercar chosen by Michelin: installed rubber Pilot Sport Cup 2 size 265/35 ZR20 on the front axle and 325/30 ZR21 on the rear.
The Valkyrie sports coupe double room, on the one hand, is Spartan, with a minimum set of the most necessary equipment and buckets with 4-point seat belts.
But on the other hand, there is carbon and high-quality genuine leather, an advanced removable steering wheel with a color display, buttons and switches, a color touchscreen multimedia system and a pair of color screens responsible for the picture from the rear view cameras (replacing the traditional rear-view mirrors).
The salon looks very stylish and modern, but you just get into the saloon with a driver and a passenger with good physical preparation. Aston Martin Valkyrie in the cockpit literally needs to squeeze through a narrow, high-placed doorway.
